SEEDS presents: The Quest—A Celebration of Community

A collaborative production inspired by Alan Lomax’s 1938 Michigan folksong recordings.

In collaboration with the American Folklife Center and its 75th anniversary celebration of Alan Lomax’s field recordings of Michigan folk music for the Library of Congress, SEEDS After School students have been working all spring with the Earthwork Music Collective and Blackbird Arts to create a performance at the City Opera House on May 9, 7:30pm titled, “The Quest – A Celebration of Community”. 

Throughout the spring, middle and high school students from Benzie Central, Brethren, Forest Area, Frankfort, Kalkaska, Manistee, and Suttons Bay Schools have been preparing for the performance by studying local history, exploring personal journeys, learning songs from the Lomax archives, and writing new material for the concert production.
