The ACDC-2 concert will feature three of Boston’s coolest a cappella groups:

BroadBand
BroadBand is a Boston-area group (comprised of 15 women) dedicated to creating a beautiful harmonic blend and an engaging a cappella performance experience for our audiences. We choose arrangements that are snazzy, melodic, unique: we are harmony at a higher bandwidth!!

Similar Jones
Similar Jones is a high-energy vocal band, primarily rock and soul and influenced by elements of blues, funk, and jazz. Our repertoire consists of classic songs from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and today, and includes a growing number of original tunes. The Jones sound is marked by tight harmonies, intricate rhythms, innovative arrangements, and — most importantly — by a rock-solid groove.


The Works
Since 1994, The Works have performed for audiences ranging from a 3,000-person conference at Disney World; to intimate private parties, schools, fundraisers, festivals and corporate functions. A mixed octet (comprised of 4 women and 4 men) and member of the American A Cappella Alliance’s Spring Sing, The Works deliver a fun combo of eclectic repertoire and witty repartee that’s always sure to entertain!

Tickets:
Suggested contribution: $20/Adult, $5/Child under 13.
Cash or check at the door. Additional donations welcomed!

ALL profits from concert ticket/concession sales and sponsorships go directly to support WCCP education programs and events.

Toxic Chemicals in Wellesley?  Come to April 5 Movie & Discussion

 

Toxins in Personal Care Products

 

Join us at this important April 5, 2017 movie screening at the Wellesley Library…

The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project (http://wcpponline.org/ ) and the Wellesley Free Library are jointly sponsoring a FREE screening and discussion of  “STINK” – the award-winning documentary the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see!!

After giving his daughters new pajamas for Christmas  and noticing a “foul smell” when opening the packages, father and filmmaker Jon Whelan began what The Boston Globe called “a Michael Moore-type investigation” to expose toxic chemicals in common household goods (e.g. “Axe” body spray, perfumes, shampoos, clothing, etc).
