Event

Voices on the Green - Journeys to Justice
Voices on the Green, First Parishs series of live performances centered around themes that explore our human experience, begins its third year with Journeys to Justice. Through reflection, stories and music, this program will consider how we learn to work for our vision of a better world for all people.

A TED-type talk by Adam Foss will introduce the theme. Adam is a former Assistant District Attorney in the Suffolk County District Attorneys Office in Boston. He is a fierce advocate for criminal justice reform and the importance of the role of the prosecutor in ending mass incarceration.

Storytellers for the evening include Stephen Shick, Marianne Boswell, Beatrix Klebe, Larry Prusak, Ben Soule, Debbie Weiner, and Shana Yansen,  Their journeys will take us as far as New Orleans and Honduras and as near as Boston and Lexington, as they share what they learned about the world, themselves, and the struggle for justice.

Music will be provided by Mark David Buckles and Matt Myer, a great musical duo who perform original music and rearrangements of popular songs with art and soul. Mark is a conductor, composer, singer, music educator and multi-instrumentalist. He serves as Director of music at Arlington Street Church in Boston, as Music Director of The Sanctuary Boston, and as Lecturer and Affiliated Artist of Music Theory at MIT. Matt is a percussionist with a degree in hand drumming from Berklee College of Music who has studied in Cuba, Ghana, and Central America. He has performed with Ysaye Barnwell (of Sweet Honey in the Rock), Pete Seeger, Emmas Revolution, Peter Mayer, Jim Scott, Nick Page, the Halalisa Singers, Samba Tremeterra, and Bloco de Afrobrazil.

First Parish member (and Board Member) David Rose will be master of ceremonies.

There will be a children's program at the same time with Marlon Carey--poet, educator, performer, and parent.  


Doors open at 6:30pm. An intermission will allow for conversation with refreshments and music.
