Three Things to Do in Brookline this Weekend
Our Thursday preview of weekend happenings.
Take one look at the Brookline Patch Calendar and you'll see there's no shortage of things to keep you and your family busy this weekend. Here are a few of the happenings we're most excited about:
See Brookline's Faculty at Their Funniest
It's the one night a year when Brookline High's teachers and staff put away the syllabus and take the stage for a string of songs, skits, dances and routines. The bill for this Year's "Moonlighting" promises dance numbers set to Lady Gaga and Black Violin, Gary Schiffman's rock band and a comic routine by none other than Headmaster Robert Weintraub, better known as Dr. Bob. Friday, Nov. 19, 7:30 p.m. Brookline High School, 115 Greenough St. $5 students, $10 adults; free for eighth graders.
Hear Brookline's History Told Through Song
Why read about Brookline's beginnings when you can have them sung to you? Lorraine Lee Hammond will perform her own "Muddy River Suite" this Saturday at the First Parish in Brookline, which is located, fittingly, adjacent to Brookine's original town hall on Walnut Street. Proceeds from the concert will help pay for the restoration of the parish's historic stained glass windows. Saturday, Nov. 20, 3 p.m. First Parish in Brookline, 382 Walnut St. $5 children; $10 adults.
See a Symphony Resurrected
Brookline's Symphony Orchestra is back after a decade-long hiatus and performing a "debut" concert this Sunday at All Saints Parish. The orchestra will kick of its new season with several classics, including Weber's Overture to Oberon, Mozart's Symphony No. 39 and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7. Sunday, Nov. 21, 7:30 p.m. All Saints Parish, 1773 Beacon St. $5 students and seniors; $10 adults.
