‘A look at our history through scene and song’
Glimpses is a series of vignettes, suitable for all ages, depicting interesting events in the history of this area from the landing of the first settlers to the tragic fire which destroyed St. John’s Anglican church on October 31st, 2001. The presentation is complemented by some very relevant slides.
Glimpses premiered on July 4th, 2008 at the Fisheries Museum in Lunenburg and ran until September. Response was tremendous, both from local residents and visitors alike. The show has been expanded somewhat over the years to include several more vignettes, some of which are quite light-hearted. In all, it is a thought-provoking experience with many emotional ups and downs.
All the songs are original from the pens of Hank Middleton, Vince Morash, Sherry Dean, Dave Brumwell, and Jon Allen.
Admittance has been by donation with a portion of the proceeds going to local historical societies.
