Let’s not imagine that Labor Day weekend is deficient in things to do this year.
Lots of active or passive entertainment is happening all over New England, usually in outdoor spaces, which is fine, because September weather is glorious.
In Chesterwood, the home and studio of Daniel Chester French in Stockbridge, MA, a dance group and a jazz trumpeter are lined up to charm audiences in the gardens on September 4-6. Map.
Richard Stanmeyer Quartet performs jazz in the garden on September 6. The group pays homage to the Great American Songbook and also plays original compositions and arrangements. Members of this group have performed at Newport Jazz Festival, Symphony Hall, House of Blues Boston, Berklee College of Music, and Jordan Hall at the New England Conservatory.
BodySonnet performs September 4 and 5. This is a collective of young contemporary dance makers and performers. The dance at Chesterwood will be directly inspired by the landscape and the sculpture of Daniel Chester French, emphasizing French’s interpretations of human form. Please arrive early in order to find a socially distanced seat in the garden (or bring a blanket to sit on the lawn)
