Revels Riversing


It’s starting to feel like fall! There is a crispness in the air these last few mornings, and the other day I woke up to find a sprinkling of fallen leaves on the street outside our window. As lovely as summer can be, fall is our favorite — the air feels so refreshing, the farmers’ markets are overflowing, and the changing leaves are always so magnificent.

This year, join the Revels for their 13th annual Riversing in celebration of the changing seasons. The free participatory evening of song and performance on  Sunday, September 18th marks the autumnal equinox. While the program includes 150 performers, including the Revels Chorus and JP Honk as well as bluegrass, jazz, and folk musicians, the audience is always an integral part of the event. The Puppeteers Cooperative and giant illuminated butterflies from Gabriel Q will also be making appearances.

Event Timeline:
5:00 pm: Gather in Winthrop Park for family festivities including face-painting, hula-hooping, a “honk” band and more!
5:45 pm: Parade to the River (all join)
6:00 pm: The singing along the Charles begins!
(Come early and enjoy a picnic along the River amidst the splendor of the parklands.)

Find more information on the Riversing and other events from the Revels on their website. Such a great group!
