Music filled the air and art unfolded across the landscape during HCT’s Wildlands Musical Stroll on Saturday, September 14th as more than 250 visitors walked the trails at HCT’s 66-acre Bank St. Bogs Nature Preserve in Harwich Port. They enjoyed live acoustic folk, classical and jazz music played by musicians on piano, guitar, accordion, bass, ukulele, percussion, even a wearable washboard, and other instruments as artists from the Guild of Harwich Artists painted the landscape in celebration of the Harwich Conservation Trust’s 25th Anniversary.
The famous “piano in the woods” mysteriously abandoned on conservation land in 2009 even made an appearance courtesy of the Harwich Historical Society. Thanks to outstanding support from local businesses, volunteers, town departments, and HCT’s summer college interns Kristen Kuzil and Kaileigh Tremble, the Wildlands Musical Stroll was a terrific success. Visitors enjoyed the fresh air and scenery while listening to live music and watching inspirational art emerge. The event also helped to raise funds in support of HCT’s 49-acre Pleasant Bay Woodlands Project.
