Join thousands of voices in song as Revels waves goodbye to summer and welcomes in the fall at this FREE family-friendly Autumnal Equinox celebration taking place in Harvard Square and along the Charles River in Cambridge. Enjoy pre-show festivities, a puppet-filled parade and communal singing with The Revels Chorus and guest soloists, including David Coffin and Stan Strickland.

Revels RiverSing is a unique theatrical event filled with music and songs celebrating the season and the splendor of the Charles River and its parklands. A growing annual tradition, RiverSing features over 100 performers but the real stars of Revels RiverSing are YOU! (Lyrics will be printed in the program and available online). Atmospheric as well as joyful, RiverSing also offers seasonal poetry readings, acrobats and circus performers, plus the magical illuminated butterflies of Gabriel Q. A wondrous spectacle filled with simple pleasures, Revels RiverSing is a terrific community event the whole family can enjoy!

There will be a program with lyrics available at RiverSing from their website.
