There are many harbingers of Spring in the Revels calendar but for us, the annual Spring concert that we perform with our friends at Perkins School for the Blind is a special favorite. Traditionally our Revels chorus pairs up with the Perkins students one-on-one and we sing and dance the season in. This year, like last, will be a virtual event, but that will not stop the dancing or the singing! We will be filming on-site at Perkins and we are looking forward to the amazing alchemy that always accompanies this musical collaboration. As a bonus, members of Boston’s Chorus pro Musica will be adding their voices to the celebration. Join us from home on Thursday, May 26 at 7:30 PM for FREE on Facebook Live for this decades-old tradition!
Thank you for still finding a way to share Revels with us; I am newer to the show, but in the last few years it has truly become a part of my holiday traditions, and I would have missed it sorely. Love and light to all of you and yours.
Modern life tends to separate us from one another. Yet nowhere is the strength of diversity expressed more completely than when our voices come together in song. I am inspired by Revels’ reminder of our commonality and delighted to celebrate again this year the gifts of nature and community at RiverSing.
Revels Education introduces cultural and seasonal traditions from around the world to children, tweens, teens, and adults. Our in-school and online enrichment programs, co-curricular performing arts series, afternoon and summer workshops, virtual skill-building programs, teacher resources, and innovative educational collaborations foster creativity, cultural literacy, and community.
There are many ways to describe what Revels is including “a spirited mix of folk music and storytelling, drama and singalong,..” (The New York Times);, “a reminder of our commonality” (Noel Paul Stookey), and “a unique way to celebrate the seasonal rituals of the world” (Yo-Yo Ma). Revels is also “an uplifting salve”, “a multi-generational celebration”, and “a way to learn and have lots of fun at the same time”. We encourage you to explore the resources below, join us for an event or class, and begin to discover Revels for yourself.
