If Music Be Love, Sing On
Friday, June 13th 2014 at 7 p.m.
The Amelia Peabody Picnic Pavilion at Plimoth Plantation
(Presented by Plimoth Plantation and South Shore Conservatory)
If Music Be Love, Sing On is a midsummer cabaret that blends the best of American songwriting with the crackling wit and passionate verse of Shakespeare’s romances. On the bumpy and entertaining road to love, the immortal Bard sprinkled enchanted forests, mischievous fairies, stolen kisses, meddling parents, magical flowers, intercepted letters and that old green-eyed monster jealousy.
If Music Be Love, Sing On celebrates romance in all its aspects -- from youth’s fevered springtime yearning, to the pangs of a broken heart and finally the reassuring touch of lifelong love when winter comes. The cabaret features twelve American love songs, both standards and little known gems, that tell an original love story inspired by Shakespeare’s plays and poems. Performed by the world-class faculty and students from the South Shore Conservatory, and Plimoth Plantation’s accomplished actors. The Amelia Peabody Pavilion overlooks the Eel River and is the perfect place to hear the concert unfold. If Music Be Love, Sing On is the perfect way to spend a summer night and delight in the love of your life.
