A Glimpse Beyond | Sept. 16, 5 pm
Returning for a 6th year of inspired performances! Encounter unexpected sights and sounds while walking along a route through Mount Auburn’s historic landscape. These “glimpses,” being performed by a cast of professional and community-based musicians, dancers, and artists, will have you reexamining your ideas about life and death, joy and sorrow. More information on this year’s performers coming soon.
Funding for programs has been provided in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
The Production staff of A Glimpse Beyond is grateful to the Avedis Zildjian Company and the Zildjian family for the crotales used by our Guiding Lights. In 1623, Avedis Zildjian was granted permission to leave the palace in order to start his own business in a suburb of Constantinople named Psamatia. That same business is now nearly four centuries old and has been passed down to Zildjian heirs for fifteen generations. Relocating to America in 1929, Avedis III moved the Zildjian factory to Quincy, MA and then to its current location in Norwell, MA for Zildjian’s 350th Anniversary. The business passed to Avedis’ son, Armand in 1977 and then to Armand’s daughter, Craigie, in 1999. Currently, Craigie and her sister Debbie continue the family tradition in what is recognized as the oldest family-owned business in America.
