We wish everyone a solemn and reflective Veteran's Day, and look back to the holiday's origin as Armistice Day, marking the end of the first World War—"the war to end all wars".

We give our thanks to all of this nation's veterans, and look forward to a day we may all live in peace.

In recognition of the summer Solstice—not to mention the abrupt heatwave—over the weekend, it feels appropriate to share this poem, "Midsummer", by Massachusetts native William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878):

A power is on the earth and in the air,
From which the vital spirit shrinks afraid,
And shelters him in nooks of deepest shade,
From the hot steam and from the fiery glare.
Look forth upon the earth—her thousand plants
Are smitten; even the dark sun-loving maize
Faints in the field beneath the torrid blaze;
The herd beside the shaded fountain pants;
For life is driven from all the landscape brown;
The bird hath sought his tree, the snake his den,
The trout floats dead in the hot stream, and men
Drop by the sunstroke in the populous town:
As if the Day of Fire had dawned, and sent
Its deadly breath into the firmament.

Once again, our country is facing massive upheaval as we confront the realities of injustice in our communities. And, as before, people will turn to art—to express anger, to build solidarity, to find inspiration.

Is there a song the gives voice to your pain? A poem that calms your fears? We hope you'll share it below, or even leave a note telling us what is giving you hope in a difficult time. #MondayMomentOfCulture

Hello, Stoughton family!

With the Baker administration's re-opening plan now public, it's clear that while there may be a light at the end of this tunnel, it will still be a long and careful journey to reach it. How fortunate we are to have the arts to comfort and inspire us through challenging times!

Support our talented high school students and their production of Roald Dahl's JAMES & THE GIANT PEACH this weekend at SHS :)

~ music & lyrics by Pasek & Paul, writers of 'Dear Evan Hansen' and 'The Greatest Showman'!!! ~

Stoughton Public Schools

Here’s a song from Stoughton High School Drama performance of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach, as presented to SHS students this afternoon.

This is an excellent opportunity for alumni and families to see the last theatrical performance at the old SHS, before we move into the new school.

The musical is directed by Ms. Sarah Labrie, the Choral Director at Stoughton High School.

The performances this weekend will have professional musicians, not the prerecorded music you hear in the video.

Join us on Friday March 15, 2019 at 7pm, Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 7pm and on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at 2pm in the SHS Auditorium at 232 Pearl Street.

Tickets are $10 for adults, and $5 for SHS students/faculty, children and seniors.

Virtual Jazz and Blues Concert! Please join us virtually on Tuesday, August 11th at 2pm, and/or Thursday, August 13th at 2pm for two on-line Zoom concerts brought to you by Paul Speidel. The program takes listeners on a musical journey from the beginnings of Jazz and its Country Blues roots, through each subsequent period of Jazz evolution, bringing them right up to the modern-day with examples of the Blues influences—not just in Jazz—but also Latin, Soul and Rock-n- Roll! To learn how to hear the concert on your computer, contact Carolyn Lee at the Stoughton Council on Aging at 781-344-8882 Ext. 9510 or, via e-mail at: [email protected] This program is supported by a grant from the Mansfield Cultural Council, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
