sharing stories from individuals across the country

Event has passed

ROCKPORT — Documentary Songwriters presents “New Beginnings: Songs of Hope and Resilience” on Saturday, July 24, at 7 p.m., at the Rockport Opera House.

The concert features five documentary songs performed by Suzie Assam, a Portland-based vocalist ‒ interspersed with selections performed by Halcyon, a local collective of talented classical musicians. The songs share stories from individuals across the country: one song, written this past winter, tells of standing in the middle of George Floyd Square and feeling a flood of unexpected emotions. Another song tells of a wildland firefighter’s reasons for showing up to a grueling job year after year.

Documentary Songwriting is a unique, step-by-step method of co-writing music that fosters empathy, boosts self-confidence and strengthens community, according to the organization, in a news release.

Tickets are available for both in-person seating ($15) and livestream ($10).
