Os Forrozeiros Brazilian/Forró dance and music

Friday, July 27th, 2018, 6:00pm, with food service by Peabody Steakhouse

The Os Forrozeiros organization has existed for over 10 years, but the Forrozeiros Dance Group has been together for the past 2 years. We practice at the Deborah Mason School of Dance Studio in Somerville and our main goals are to spread our love of Forró, help others get to know more about our culture and its richness through dance, and help needy populations by promoting fundraisers and other events beneficial to the community.

Tonight’s non-profit organization

In the spirit of giving back to the community each concert is partnered with a Cape Ann non-profit organization. The public is invited to make a free-will donation (So if you can, please bring cash/check.) This week's organization is Wellspring House.

About Wellspring House

Wellspring helps over 1000 families each year in homelessness prevention, emergency shelter provision and securing long-term housing. It offers free adult education classes including HSET and English language classes. Wellspring provides job training and placement through its partnership with North Shore Medical Center.

Harry Hinlian

The 2021 summer music series is dedicated in memory of the late Harry Hintlian, a former GMF board member, philanthropist, and avid environmentalist. Together with his wife Mary, Harry was a generous donor towards the ongoing preservation and improvement of the Meetinghouse. One of those gifts was three hectares of land, newly-planted with specialized trees in Costa Rica and managed by Reforest the Tropics. Founded by Harry Hintlian, RTT is the only United Nations sanctioned carbon sequestration project to permanently gather and sequester CO2. In addition to the Meetinghouse’s extensive insulation and energy conservation measures, this gift resulted in the historic building becoming one of the few “net zero,” or carbon neutral, examples in America.
