MCTV to Capture the Magic of The River’s Song Project

Join us this Saturday, May 16th!

This Saturday Turners Falls will host The River's Song Project, the culmination of a year-long study designed to integrate the arts and the environment as the means to highlight the Connecticut River's diverse ecology. Festivities get underway at the Turners Falls Fish Ladder near Unity Park at 9am with events throughout the day ending at 9pm. There will be a wide variety of interactive opportunities for adults and children alike ranging from drumming and art making to artists talks and spoken word poetry. A full schedule of events can be found on the River Culture website.

MCTV resident videographer Bret Leighton will be on hand along with other community members to capture the magic and energy on Saturday. "I love capturing live events like this on film, particularly music performances," says Bret. Bret has been working with MCTV for four years now and welcomes other community members to connect with the station to join him in filming The River's Song Project this weekend. 

To find out how you can pick up a camera and join Bret please call the station at 413-863-9200,, or stop by 34 2nd Street in Turners between 10 and 4 Monday through Friday. We'd love to work with you!
