Remember the “Piano in the Woods”?
The piano that mysteriously appeared on Harwich conservation land in 2009 led to worldwide news coverage. It also inspired us at HCT to think more about how music, art and nature can complement each other. So, HCT has planned the 2nd Annual Wildlands Music & Art Stroll for Saturday, September 13th from 1-4 p.m. (rain date: Sunday, Sept. 14th) in celebration of saving special places.
Musicians from near and far have been invited to play jazz, folk and classical music on the original “piano in the woods” as well as guitar, accordion, mandolin and other instruments. The musical acts will be spread throughout HCT’s 66-acre Bank Street Bogs Nature Preserve, but you need to park at the Harwich Elementary School (see below) and take a shuttle to the Preserve. As you stroll along cart paths, local artists from the Guild of Harwich Artists will be painting the landscape.
As music fills the air, some may work up an appetite. We’ll be offering food under a tent. All the artists, both musical and visual, are donating their time and talents to help celebrate 26 years of land protection by HCT. This event would not be possible without the generous support of local businesses (see sponsors below).
Again, the mysterious piano, now housed at the Harwich Historical Society, will make a rare appearance. We look forward to seeing you for a fun-filled afternoon full of Music, Art and Nature.
Suggested donation of $5.00 per person
Visitors must park at the Harwich Elementary School parking area located at #263 South Street. Shuttle buses provided by Cape Destinations will bring visitors from the middle school to the Wildlands Music & Art Stroll event and back from 1 to 4 p.m.
Rain date: Sunday, September 14th
