Join us on December 9, as Community MusicWorks present its third-annual family holiday concert - “Songs of Darkness & Light,” a musical celebration of the winter solstice. CMW’s resident ensemble - the MusicWorks Collective - will be joined by acclaimed storyteller Val Tutson in a reading of Marion Dane Bauer’s The Longest Night, complete with musical illustrations by Bach, Holst, Vivaldi, and more. In Bauer’s award-winning children’s book, woodland creatures attempt to “bring back the sun” on the longest night of the year… but only the chickadee and its gentle song can persuade the light to return, reminding us of the hopeful power of music.

Author Marion Dane Bauer and illustrator Ted Lewin will be present to sign books after the show — a great holiday gift idea!
