Pittsfield: Springside hosts exhibit, concert series

Friday July 26, 2013

The annual "Concerts in the Arboretum" series continues at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30, with the acclaimed folk trio Wintergreen. The concert series is held on Tuesdays on the lawn of the Hebert Arboretum at Springside Park.

Wintergreen performs a mixture of traditional and contemporary folk music from the British Isles and America, along with their own compositions.

In addition, the historic Springside House will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. for visitors to tour the popular "Open Spaces" exhibit of Pittsfield’s park history.

In "Open Spaces: A century in Pittsfield’s parks and recreational life," visitors can view artifacts and images spanning a lifetime’s worth of outdoor recreation, local athletics, and park management.

The exhibit will be on display in the foyer and main office of the Springside House from 5 to 7 p.m. the next four Tuesdays, July 30 to Aug. 20, preceding concerts on the lawn of the house, sponsored by the Vincent J. Hebert Arboretum.
