Date: Saturday, May 22, 2021
Time: 11:00am
Location: Virtual Class

Powers faculty and guest artists present “Anansi and the Moss-Covered Rock” (hosted virtually by the Belmont Public Library) as part of the Musical Storytelling Series.

The story is written by Eric Kimmel and illustrated by Janet Stevens.

From, “When Anansi the Spider finds a strange moss-covered rock in the forest, he uses it to trick all his animal friends. But Little Bush Deer is onto Anansi’s scheme, and hatches a plan to beat him at his own game. Based on tales originating in West Africa and familiar in Caribbean culture, the five-book Anansi the Trickster series is full of slapstick humor and mischief.”

Featuring music and original compositions by Powers faculty and guest artists:

  • Todd Brunel
  • Jessica Cooper
  • Yas Ishibashi

This event is supported in part by the Belmont Savings Bank Charitable Foundation and the Belmont Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
