We're delighted to host The Ladles, a folk trio named a 2016 “Artist to Watch” by Sound of Boston and winners of 2016 Grassroots Festival band competition. Katie Martucci (guitar, vocals and fiddle), Caroline Kuhn (tenor banjo and vocals) and Lucia Purpura-Pontoniere (fiddle and vocals) met at the New England Conservatory of Music’s Contemporary Improvisation program. Together they create a unique sound influenced by their backgrounds in traditional folk, jazz, Motown, and choral music. The Ladles have 3 part harmony perfected - but their sound is much more than that. They are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending swing, old-time, neo-soul and choral music into a sound all their own. Using solely acoustic instrumentation and 3 voices, they create an other worldy atmosphere that draws audiences in and demands attention. They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls. We think these three talented women are the perfect fit for the warm, intimate vibe of Prez Hall's stage.

“Landfill Harmonic” follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their community, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

Sponsored by the Herring River Concerned Citizens, a group from Wellfleet/Truro who are researching the potential risks and benefits of the Herring River Restoration Project to help townspeople develop informed opinions about the project. During these sessions, we will share what we've learned based on the hundreds of pages of official project documents we've reviewed, scientific literature we've studied, and consultations we've had with independent experts. We'll continue research to find answers to further questions, and invite reps from the Friends of the Herring River, The Natl. Seashore, the Herring River Retoration Committee and the Selectmen to attend. Please come share you thoughts and questions on this vast and complex issue. LEARN MORE HERE
