Program description: Celebrate trees and flowering plants with this unique performance. Refreshing, lyrical and provocative In the Grove looks at the many ways different cultures have imagined the living world of trees. From a delicate tale of love celebrating the Cherry trees of Japan, to an old English song that speaks of the hidden language of flowers, to the poignant Cornish legend of One Tree Hill, we'll travel ‘round the world in story celebrating this garden of delights. Each tale is surrounded by music and songs from many lands. The event culminates with the haunting Czech legend The Dancing Spirit of the Birch Grove. “It awakened in all of us there a sense of the spirit in things.” Jay O’Callahan
