You are invited to join in our community celebration of 350 years of stories at The Gables.

Over the course of the evening, you will be taken on a journey through 350 years of eclectic music and dance spanning not only the centuries but also the globe, paying homage to our settlement programming and the mission of Caroline Emmerton. In addition to the programming, there will also be food, drink, and surprises by-the-sea throughout the course of the celebration.

All proceeds benefit The Gables’ unique dual mission of preservation and education.

Our very special thanks to Creative Collective for their partnership on this event. Thanks to the power of their connections, we're excited to light up the night with Retonica and bring you amazing sound with Upside Media.

Mainstage performances by:
— DUNYA: An Eastern Turkish Renaissance Ensemble playing traditional Turkish music.
— Dhangsang Lughar/Music of Tibet: Tibetan Opera Dancers sharing the history of Tibet through their music and dance.
— The Craft Ensemble: an all-women's classical string trio
— The Immigrant Experience: A Cantata by John Kramer: “this timely piece reflects the issues surrounding immigration, and features texts by the Founding Fathers and others that established the United States as a welcoming place — a place, in the words of George Washington, “open to receive not only the opulent and respectable stranger but the oppressed and persecuted of all nations and religions.” Kramer’s cantata is composed in seven movements for choir, soloists, violin, clarinet, cello, and piano.
— John Keegan & Madhouse​ with plans to get everyone on their feet and dancing to cap off the night!

Greetings from:
Mayor Kimberly Driscoll
Representative Paul Tucker
North Shore Music Theatre's Karen Nascembeni
