revels riversing 2021 photoJoin us for the annual Revels RiverSing: A Free Family Celebration of the Autumnal Equinox on Saturday, September 25 at 7:00 pm.

Hosted by Revels music director George Emlen, this year’s equinox celebration features the dynamic gospel singer, pianist, song leader and educator Dr. Kathy Bullock, all the way from Berea, Kentucky! Joining Kathy on stage as soloists/song leaders are jazz great Stan Strickland, the multi-talented David Coffin, and the young Brooklyn-based (but Boston-bred) jazz vocalist, Claire Dickson.

For the first time, the Stan Strickland RiverSing Jazz Quartet will be our featured band. Stan has graced the RiverSing stage (and Sun-Moon boat!) for many years on soprano saxophone and as a vocal soloist, and we are thrilled to welcome him back this year as bandleader.

Ken Field and the Revolutionary Snake Ensemble will fill Herter Park with their joyful sound beginning at 5:00 pm as our family activities begin.Rounding out our roster are the Revels RiverSing Chorus, the Revels RiverSing Children – and YOU!

Bring your best voices. Song sheets will be available online and onsite so we can all sing along!

EVENT TIMELINE:

5:00 PM – Family Activities provided by Revels and the Charles River Conservancy begin in Herter Park

5:45 PM – Join us for a puppet-filled “Parade to the Amp”! (Puppets provided by the Puppeteers Cooperative)

6:00 PM – Singing in the Amphitheater will start!

Raise your voice in song as Revels waves goodbye to summer and welcomes in the fall at this FREE family-friendly Equinox celebration in our new riverfront location, the Herter Park Amphitheater in Allston!

Enjoy pre-show family festivities, a beer garden for adults, and lots of communal singing.

Begun as a partnership with the Charles River Conservancy in 2004, Revels RiverSing is a participatory music event filled with music, magic and songs celebrating the change of seasons and the splendor of the Charles River and its parklands. While puppets and whimsy may abound, the heart of RiverSing is the communal singing and the joyful spirit that comes with it.

Herter Park offers FREE PARKING, a pop-up Beer Garden, and a convenient concession stand for snacks and drink.

Herter Park Amphitheater is located at 1175 Soldiers Field Road, Boston, MA, next to the Herter Community Garden. It is at the opposite end of the large parking lot from the Artesani Splash Park & Wading Pool.
