Claflin Hill – American Dreamscapes

The BVAA, in conjunction with the Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra, is offering a fun night of art and music! The orchestra provides the music while the BVAA provides the art!

On Saturday, April 30, 2016 from 7:30-8:30pm the Claflin Hill Symphony Orchestra will be performing a show. The BVAA will have art up for patrons to enjoy before the show and during intermission.

Deadline to submit your titles and sizes via the online form is Monday, April 25th. This gives us time to determine how many panels will be needed. There’s no fee to participate and the show is open to all BVAA members.

Drop-Off for the show will be Thursday, April 28th and Friday, April 29th from 4-6pm. Everything will then be set up Friday night so it’s ready to go for Saturday. Pick-up will be Sunday morning from 8-10am. If you can’t make that, email us to make other arrangements.

We need volunteers to help us hang the show from 5-6 on Friday and to take it down at 8:30 on Sunday. Please let us know if you’re available. There is a 20% commission on sales which will be forgiven for those who help out!

The music being performed on Sat the 30th will be:

Bernstein: Symphonic Dances from “West Side Story”
Lerner & Lowe: Music from Camelot
Peter Boyer: The Dream Lives On: A Portrait of the Kennedy Brothers
All your favorites from The Frank Sinatra Songbook and more!

We should aim to bring the best art in our libraries, to match the high quality of the performance. That being said, if you have two great pieces and one features an Americana theme then that might be a perfect one to choose!

Here’s the official Claflin Hill page with all details on the concert –


To get to to Milford Town Hall, 52 Main Street from Millbury take 140 S for around 10 miles. Take a slight left on West Street, which becomes Exchange Street. Turn left onto Main Street/MA-16 for about 2 1/2 miles. It’s a tall white steepled building very hard to miss. There are parking lots on either side of the bldg. as well as street parking.

You may enter by the side entrance where the handicapped ramp is, go in via the ramp and basement entrance and use the elevator to go to the second floor. Anne will have signs up around the building indicating where these are.
