Celebrating Thoreau’s Bicentennial

For our March 31/April 1 concerts, we are participating in a global celebration of Henry David Thoreau’s Bicentennial, his 200th birthday. Many organizations around our literary town of Concord, Massachusetts are participating in this recognition of Thoreau’s impact on our interactions with nature and with our philosophy of life in our democracy.

Check out the list of local organizations that are sponsoring the Bicentennial website.

There is also a list of events. If you are anywhere in the world and you’re presenting a public event in recognition of Thoreau, you are invited to add your event too.
