Join us for a celebration of nature in music and poetry featuring Becky Billock, pianist as she celebrates Mother Earth. A walk in the forest, a mountain stream, a dog chasing squirrels, a polar bear sauntering across the ice–all these and more are explored in the solo piano performance Mother Earth.” Sure to ignite the imagination, the program will feature the world premiere of “Sounds of a Fjord” by Norwegian composer Kaja Bjørntvedt. Don’t miss this musical and poetic journey through earth’s spectacular landscapes.
The event will be held Saturday, March 9, 7:00 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Salem, 5090 Center St. NE, Salem 97317. Tickets at the door are $12 ($8 students). For more information call 503-364-0932, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
