The Singing Stream: A Musical Hike on the Hiroshi Loop Trail
Friday, October 9, 2020
We welcome you to The Singing Stream, a musical and poetic journey through the Hiroshi Loop Trail in Peterborough. With Franz Schubert’s tender song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin (“The Lovely Maid of the Mill”) as your guide, we invite you to heighten your senses, open your heart, and walk in the woods in a new way.
On October 9, 10, and 11, mezzo-soprano Jazimina MacNeil and violinist Marji Gere will give short talks exploring the ways Schubert and Wilhelm Müller weave the natural world into their music and poetry. Then, you’ll head out on your own for a 1.8-mile walk through the woods, with Schubert’s music — downloaded to your phone or tablet in advance — as your guide.
Space is limited, and registration is required. Music download directions and exact location information will be provided upon registration. Please read our COVID-19 outing guidelines before registering to be sure this is the right program for you.
Register online here. This event is being offered six times from October 9 through 11 (at both noon and 3 p.m. each day), so if registration for a particular time slot is full, please see our Events page for other dates and times.
The Singing Stream will remain a part of the Hiroshi Trail in perpetuity, so if you are unable to come to the opening weekend, don’t worry! Instructions for the walk will be made available on our Trails page after October 12.
