Richard Blanco, a native of Cuba and resident of Bethel, made history when he was selected to compose and read a poem for President Obama's second inauguration. Local resident Tom Davis was inspired to set to music Blanco's original poem, "One Today." It will be performed by a chorus and string quartet, including an appearance by Richard Blanco and followed by a reception.
This event is expected to reach capacity - consider attending the dress rehearsal on Saturday, October 22 at The Gem Theater.
This event honors retired Gould Academy music and art instructor Jim Owen.
Presented in cooperation with the Western Mountains Senior College, Mahoosuc Arts Council, and Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce.
