Mindy Todd, engaging host of WCAI’s The Point will emcee the evening. Peter Earle, Executive Director of The Academy Playhouse and Richard Delaney, President & CEO of The Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies will give remarks.
Whale Song is the inspiration of Greg Johnson, lead singer and guitarist of “Shower The People” whose long time passion and support for the arts and the oceans are found in the work and the mission of both the Academy and the Center. Based out of Orleans, this talented band includes Brian Morris on bass, John Kew on drums, and Janet Leahy and Kerry Kew on vocals.
"The nexus between science and the arts, whether it be paintings, photography, sculpture, poetry or music, can be a powerful way to convey and celebrate our interdependence with the natural world and to understand the importance of being responsible stewards of it. Greg's amazing wall murals of whales, so prominently visible on sides of buildings around the Lower Cape, dramatically express these messages. This will be yet another opportunity to bring us together in support of healthy oceans and communities." - Richard Delaney, President & CEO, Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies
"The Academy of Performing Arts is a recognized premier center for the performing arts, bound only by our limitless imagination. Currently in our 37th year you may rest assured we will do everything within our power to maintain the high standards and quality of education and performance people have come to expect from the Academy, an experience you will remember and treasure. Our mission remains clear, to help us put aside our collective troubles for a couple of hours and allow you to enjoy, reflect, shed a tear and perhaps share a laugh at our live performances." - Peter Earle, Executive Director, The Academy Playhouse
