Did you know that the “sounds of nature” are not necessarily pleasant, nor is the music that imitates them? Join local musician Stephen Peisch and David Pihl as they present a program of piano music that was inspired by nature, including compositions by Robert Schumann, Franz Liszt, Bela Bartok, Amy Beach, Edward MacDowell, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Allen Hovhaness, Claude Debussy, Stephen Peisch, and William Thomas McKinley.

Per tradition, HCT likes to ring in the New Year with a stroll among Harvard’s forests and fields. Nothing sets the tone for the year ahead like a leisurely walk with friends and neighbors in the crisp rejuvenating air of January. This year, in the spirit of cooperation and good company, we will join the walk being held at the Oxbow National Wildlife Refuge by the Friends of the Oxbow in collaboration with the Lancaster Community Center. Meet at the parking lot of the main entrance to the refuge at the end of Still River Depot Road in Harvard; the walk starts at noon. Dress weather appropriate; in the event of hazardous weather, the walk will be cancelled.
