Voices on the Green Story telling session.

Voices on the Green Story telling session.In Celebration of Lexington 250, Voices on the Green will present 4 special shows of storytelling and music with themes that reflect the events of 250 years ago.

The First Show—November 22, 2024—will center on the theme “Better Together,” focusing on stories and songs of interdependence.

The Second Show—April 4, 2025—will center on the theme “On Our Own” and will focus on stories and songs of independence.

The Third and Fourth Shows—November 11, 2025 and April 11, 2026—will focus on themes that will emerge during the upcoming celebrations. We invite everyone to attend in person and have sought a grant to make each program available online.

What is Voices on the Green?

Voices on the Green presents unique evenings of true, personal stories, complementary music, and the opportunity to meet those who make up our community. Since 2017 Voices on the Green has held these evenings at our historic First Parish Church on the Lexington Battle Green. Each one knits the strands of diverse individuals and experiences into a unifying theme. We share the proceeds of each show with a local organization whose values and mission serve Lexington and the surrounding communities.

What will the First Show—on November 22, 2024—be about?

Reflecting the events of 1775, when disparate militia and community groups were gathering together to better prepare themselves for what might lie ahead, this show centers on the theme “Better Together.” We will invite people who live or work in Lexington to share their stories about being better together to celebrate or protest, to build or dissolve, to remember or forget, to invent or recover, to find joy or escape trauma, to combat injustice or work for peace.

If you have a story to share, please contact us.
