The next performance after this week will be Sunday, September 18th, 3-4:30pm, also at the Somerville Community Growing Center.

These programs at the Growing Center are supported in part by a grant from the Somerville Arts Council, a local commission that is supported by the Mass Cultural Council and the City of Somerville.

Note: Mark and David Gold will also be playing as a duo at the Medford Farmers Market on Thursday, Sept 15th, from 3-5pm! Check out the bounty of the season from the market’s vendors and enjoy local musicians.

From Dr. Holly Zagaria, Music Director at The First Baptist Church of Medford (MA): 

The First Baptist Church of Medford uses section leaders, and we are looking for people to fill these roles. We have openings for alto, tenor and bass — below is the flyer — and the Church hopes to have these parts covered for September, if possible! 🎶


Alyssa Littlejohn to appear in “Songs for a New World” on Saturday, August 13th at Malden HS

Good afternoon, 

This summer, I have been a part of Malden Summer Community Theatre and we are performing the musical “Songs for a New World!” The show is on Friday, August 12 and Saturday, August 13, both at 7:00pm at Malden High School Jenkins Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for general admission. I have a couple of solos and I am singing with the ensemble! I also have attached the poster with information on the show. 

Please feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be interested; we are trying to promote the show as much as possible! 

If you have any questions, you can contact our director, Ms. Leanne DeRosa at
