Spring is in sight! This has been the strangest winter, and while we aren’t exactly complaining about so little snow, it is a little unsettling to have such a mild winter.
Here are a few things we are looking forward to this month:
A Night at the Boston Ballet
We always love a night out at the ballet! This month, Boston Ballet is offering two different programs — rEVOLUTION, a selection of three ballets from innovative choreographers (until March 8th), and Carmen (March 12th-22nd), a selection focused on interpretations of womanhood. See our thoughts on rEVOLUTION here, and find more info and tickets for both on the Boston Ballet website!
The Show at Berklee
We always love performances from Berklee students and staff, and they are such a fun and reasonable night out! On March 5th, The Show will be a pop music spectacle. It is directed by Rob Lewis, a Berklee alum, and producer who has worked with Christina Aguilera and New Kids on the Block, among others. Find tickets here.
Poetry and the Body Workshop with Lindsey O’Neill
We have known Lindsey O’Neill for several years (we used to take her wonderful restorative yoga class!), and it is always a treat to see her. She is a poet and yoga teacher, and has been teaching classes centered around the intersection of the physical experience and writing. Her one day class this upcoming Friday at GrubStreet asks “How do our life experiences—sacred, mundane, and profane—shape our identity, live within our bodies, and give rise to our poetry?” See more and sign up here!
SoWa First Friday and Second Sunday
On the First Friday of month from 5-9pm, and the Second Sunday of the month from 11am-4pm, the artists of the 450 Harrison studios open their doors to welcome visitors. Our dad recently moved into one of the studios, and I’m using a corner of the space — so exciting! We are still organizing, but come and see us next month. If you are there this month, make sure to stop in to see Mia Cross’s work at 450 Harrison and at the Fountain Street Gallery — read our Q+A with Mia here!
The Revels Welcome Spring
The shows from the Revels are always such interactive community fun! This Saturday March 21st, from 2-4pm in Watertown, the revels celebrate the arrival of spring and the Vernal Equinox with music, dance, and song. Tickets are $8-20, and are available here.
Japanese Painting at the Harvard Art Museums
Through July, the Harvard Art Museums are presenting early modern Japanese painting from the Edo period (1615-1868). This period was transformative for Japanese art, and the innovations also had wide influence across the world. The 120 pieces from the Feinberg Collection make up the largest exhibition that the Harvard Art Museums has ever hosted! See more about the exhibition here, and our past visits to the Harvard Art Museums here and here.
Little Groove at the Coolidge Corner Theatre
The Little Groove music classes have been a staple for our kids — all the teachers are so good with the little ones and are all so talented! On March 28th they will be performing a morning show at the Coolidge Corner Theatre — recommended for 2 and up. More info here.
