Solstice-inspired show to benefit KIND
MIDDLEBURY — June 21 was the summer solstice for the northern hemisphere. That means the Earth’s North Pole had its maximum tilt toward the sun, bringing us the longest period of daylight. Now that we’re after the summer solstice, days are getting shorter.
But don’t fear. The folks who bring us Night Fires each year will present “After the Solstice:” a marathon for rooted hope, fierce joy and percolating braveries of the heart will be singing a strong and passionate song on June 29, 7:30 p.m., at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. It’s a benefit for KIND (Kids In Need of Defense).
KIND is an organization offering legal help, protection, comfort and safe passage for children who have arrived alone (yes, some do arrive alone) or been separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexican border.
There will be quite a few beautiful fierce and inspiring words from some
Night Fires regulars will offer beautiful and inspiring words, and a whole lot of really terrific music. One of the feature singers is Night Fires’ own blues/jazz/rock/world music diva, Annie Voorhees, and her musical compadres.
Tickets are on a sliding scale of $20, $50 or $100 and all proceeds go to KIND (supportkind.org). Purchasing tickets in advance is encouraged, but they’ll also be available at the door if not sold out. Visit townhalltheater.org or call (802) 382–9222 to reserve your ticket or for more information.
