On the first weekend in May, Harvard has an arts festival that is free and open to the public. There are student performances to appeal to all tastes, including concerts of popular music, classical music and jazz, theatrical performances, and art exhibitions At one concert we attended in a small chapel on campus, students of a class on the music of Schubert performed his songs and chamber music, their professor providing historical comments. Much to our astonishment, many of the same students who played instruments, also sang Schubert's songs. The talent and poise of these students were remarkable.
Other plans prevented us from going to more than three of the more than eighty Arts First events on Saturday.
We’ve already blocked out the first weekend in May on our 2020 calendar.
