The Festival of Trees at the Berkshire Museum in downtown Pittsfield, MA, is an annual holiday tradition that has grown from a handful of holiday trees, to an exhibition of more than 100 decorated trees.

This year discover Festival of Trees 2018: Often Heard, a  collection of dazzling, decorated trees, each depicting a favorite song. The 2018 Festival  will feature more than 100 holiday trees, each depicting a popular song. From hip-hop to doo-wop, blues and jazz to pop, country, and rock, can you guess the song titles from the decorations on each tree? All the trees festooned with musical themes are sponsored by businesses, schools, and community organizations in this beloved annual celebration of the holiday season.

The museum is also hosting an after hours viewing on Saturdays. When the twinkling lights are ablaze on every tree but the galleries are dark. The indoor forest of imaginatively decorated trees festooned with musical motifs offer a dreamy atmosphere during evening hours, and guessing the song title that matches each tree’s décor becomes more of a challenge at night!

David Sedaris at The Colonial Theater in Pittsfield, Apr 13

David Sedaris is coming to The Colonial Theater this Friday. Here’s some info from Berkshire Theatre Group, “With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, best-selling American author, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.”

I’ve been a fan of David Sedaris for years, and have always wanted to attend one of his stage appearances. He has been to the Colonial several times, but this Friday is the first time that I’ll be free when he is in Pittsfield. I’ve got my tickets, and can’t wait! Tickets are still available (see below for details).
