This weekend, join Música Franklin for their 5th annual Fun Fest at Unity Park in Turners Falls, Massachusetts. All are welcome to this free event which will feature a variety of entertainment, artists, and musical performances. Come enjoy music by Western Mass’ own Expandable Brass Band, three-time Tony award-winner Abena Koomson-Davis, and Brazilian Jazz and Bossa Nova artist Isabella Mendes.
Música Franklin runs a free, immersive, after-school program for youth in Franklin County. Students learn singing, drumming, and either viola, violin, cello, or bass. They strive to eliminate barriers to achievement and their mission is to equip people with tools and resilience to express their voice and be heard. Música Franklin’s own student ensemble, which consists of students from both Greenfield and Turners Falls, will perform at Fun Fest.
In addition to lots of music, the program at Fun Fest also includes story telling, a mime performance, make-and-take-a-craft projects, food trucks, and local craft vendors. It’s sure to be a fun event - don’t miss out!
The Fun Fest is happening on Saturday, May 20th, 2023 from 12:30 to 5:30 pm. RSVP to the Fun Fest Facebook event to get the full lineup of events and updates. Go to musicafranklin.org for more information about their programs.
