The Rockland Public Library presents Scarlet Labbe-Watson, Lily Rogers, Nate Davis, Raya Luehman, Sophia Scheck, and Anna Picconi,
This group of young local musicians and poets will present Unfurling Ferns: An Exploration of Climate Change Through Music and Poetry in the Community Room. The music – performed by Scarlet Labbe-Watson, Lily Rogers, Nate Davis, Raya Luehman, and Sophia Scheck – includes a trio by Dvorak, a string quartet by Florence Price, and a duet by Clara Schumann, along with a foot-tapping fiddle tune.
