Celebrate the National Parks Centennial Year with Homestead Center for the Arts on Friday, October 21, 2016 at 7 PM in the Seminole Theatre, 18 N. Krome Avenue, Homestead Homestead is proud to be the Gateway to Biscayne and Everglades National Parks, two of the crown jewels of America’s 59 national parks.
We are bringing you a special evening. This unique concert, performed by the Chance Ensemble, was created for the Centennial Year. It has been presented to over thirty National Parks Associations. Listen to the words of John Muir, the same words that inspired President Theodore Roosevelt to create the National Park Service. The pieces were composed especially for this presentation. The brisk violin of Liesel Wilson compliments the original cello works of Ed Willet and the ethereal soprano of Cheryl Leah. Ensemble member and actor, Thomas Clyde Mitchell, recites Muir's poetry and provides Celtic percussion, fresh from John Muir's native Scotland, giving the group a distinctive Scottish flavor.
Chance has opened for Little Feat, Willie Nelson, Leo Kottke, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Rickie Lee Jones and others but feels most comfortable with an intimate audience shaped by the Park Service mission.
