Lighthouse Keeper

  • Thomas Crane Public Library 40 Washington Street Quincy, MA, 02169 United States (map)

Featuring Quincy composer Delvyn Case’s Lighthouse Keeper and Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, Palaver Strings brings the Thomas Crane Public Library in Quincy a concert for families with young children. Lighthouse Keeper tells through music and narration the story of Abbie Burgess Grant, the 19th century teenager who tended a lighthouse off the coast of Maine during a great Nor’easter, saving the lives of countless sailors. Britten’s Simple Symphony is a piece of dynamic and contrasting movements, built on themes Britten composed when he was himself a young child.
