MERRY, MAGICAL MIDDLE STREET WALK AT THE SARGENT HOUSE
The Sargent House thanks everyone who helped create a magical day to appeal to Middle Street Walkers’ eyes, ears, and appetites.
The Sargent House Museum gives a huge cheer to Nathan Cohen and His Talented Rockport High School Student Chamber Music Players who regaled us with an extraordinary playlist.
The stellar performers included:
Isa Brisson, Aidan Flynn, Lydia Giangregorio , Sayles Kasten , Nelson Pike, Soni Razdan, Emma Sekercan
Gloucester High School Sargent House intern Hannah St Cyr graciously greeted guests and revived their frosty fingers with hot mulled cider and homemade goodies—fresh baked muffins, anyone? Not a crumb remained.
None other than our own Kimberlee Cloutier-Blazzard performed as Judith in Jay Di Prima’s original production, “Mingling of Souls from Sorrow to Joy” at the Unitarian Universalist Church.
Jay performed the part of Reverend John Murray, the love of Judith’s life. Judith led an appreciative audience back to the House to view John and Judith’s bedrooms and her rare writing closet.
Many thanks go to the volunteers who decorated the House with fresh greens. Eva DiLascio, Barbe Ennis, and Vicky Bennet showed off their artistry and skill.
The showcase designs on view throughout the House are rendered in ribbons, greens and berries, gilded shells and holly–often in unique containers–are for sale. Next year, stop by for special holiday events and pick out your own fresh wreath or centerpiece to help support the Sargent House!
Happy Holidays to all!
