BROOKstock: Where 1969 Meets 2012

Friday, June 1, 2012 7:30pm

Ellsworth Theatre, Pine Manor College

400 Heath St. Chestnut Hill, MA 02467

Brookline Music School ensembles and young emerging artists from Brookline will perform a variety of classic songs and original music at A Music Festival for Brookline, BROOKstock: Where 1969 Meets 2012 concert on Friday, June 1st at 7:30pm in the Ellsworth Theatre at Pine Manor College.

Brookline Music School ensembles will be performing music from 1969, the final year in an amazing decade of American popular music, one which laid the foundation for all that followed. Original music from Brookline’s most promising young bands, singer/songwriters, and composers will also be featured. BROOKstock seeks to contrast music from the 1960’s with music being created here and now by today’s young musicians. The similarities and differences between the two will, we hope, make for an exciting and entertaining evening of live music.

Admission is $10 general admission, $5 per student and all ages are welcome. Advance tickets can be purchased at Brookline Music School (25 Kennard Road, Brookline; 617-277-4593). For more information, visit the Brookline Music School website at www.bmsmusic.org or call 617-277-4593.
