Event has passed

ROCKPORT — Documentary Songwriters presents “New Beginnings: Songs of Hope and Resilience” 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,” said a news release.

Tickets are available for both in-person seating ($15) and livestream ($10). Learn more at docsong.org
