Words and Music- The Magic of the Mystic River

  • West Medford Community Center 111 Arlington Street Medford, MA, 02155 United States (map)

“The Magic of the Mystic River” is the theme for the West Medford Community Center’s next “Words and Music,” program. From its earliest days, Medford has been tied to the Mystic. At times the river was a resource, and at times a liability. This program will celebrate the Mystic River and discuss what it was, what it is, and what it can be

The “Words” portion of the program will be a panel discussion moderated by Medford native Terry E. Carter, Director of Elder Services at WMCC. Mystic River Watershed Association's Executive Director, Patrick Herron, is serving on the panel! Other panelists include Medford resident and Mystic River volunteer and champion Ann Frenning Kossuth and Darya Mattes, a recent Tufts graduate student who helped the city of Medford’s Office of Energy and Environment study local impacts of climate change; 

The “Music” will be provided by a group of singers from the choir at Grace Church of Medford, led by Grace’s music minister, Ruth Roper, and featuring Monty Hill, lead baritone of the internationally recognized a cappella group Ball in the House. They will perform an assortment of songs of mystic rivers and the great outdoors.
