Nantucket Youth Concert

At student performances here on the island, I’m always surprised by the caliber of the performances, the seriousness and aplomb of these young artists, and the acceptance, encouragement, and appreciation of the student audience – a well played difficult and esoteric classical cello piece is applauded as enthusiastically as a lively acoustic rock tune. Their teachers, their parents, and their peers all should be applauded. And we are blessed to have River Bennett on this island.

The Youth Benefit Concert took place on Monday, July 27, 2009 at the Methodist Church, produced by NHS grad River Bennett. It included performances by The Cobbletones, Caleb Kardell, River and Zeb Bennett, Lia Newman, Isaiah Williams, Nick Davies, Evelyn Hudson, Kerry Fee, Aiden Sherry, and more. Donations benefited Play Pumps International, the Nantucket School of Music and The Methodist Church. I missed the first half, but here are some photos of the second. More at
