If you laugh and cry within the same ten minutes, you either need a vacation or you are sitting in the audience at a Don White show. This working class family man fromLynn , Massachusetts has emerged as the thoughtful songwriter of the decade whose relevance to our lives is evidenced by the powerful reaction he evokes at every concert.

The DeChamplains - pianist Matt and vocalist Atla - use the bandstand to share an amazing American tradition. It was their love for jazz that originally brought Matt and Atla together and now their passion is to share this classic music with contemporary audiences performing a romantic evening of jazz for Valentines Day. Their unique combination of accessibility and musicality allow them to present a variety of music including American Songbook, Bebop, contemporary jazz pieces and original compositions. Their influences include a great range of jazz masters, from Ella Fitzgerald and Art Tatum to Bobby McFerrin and Brad Mehldau. They naturally create a comfortable atmosphere that reaches today’s diverse audience with a musical experience that is truly memorable. Performing with the DeChamplains will be bassist Matt Dwonszyk and violinist Jason Anick.

Grasshopper Sparrow
Grasshopper Sparrow
Northwest Park has two male Grasshopper Sparrows singing in the Park's "Long Field." These birds are endangered and the Park has spent much time and money to prepare the fields as grasslands to attract this species. We give recognition to these folks for finding the birds:: Brian Kleiman, Laura Boglisch, and Jamie Meyers. The photos are by Ford Parker
