Planet Huntington tours Mozambique on Sunday, December 3, at 7:00 p.m. Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world, is seldom visited by Americans. Independence came to this African country as late as the mid-1970s and was followed by civil war and natural disaster. Elections in the 1990s brought peace and an increase in economic prosperity (in 1994, the capital city Maputo had only 2 hotels and 3 restaurants!) Come learn about the changes underway in this beautiful, Portuguese-speaking country of abundant wildlife and coastlines, and a low population density. Carmen Tedesco will present a bit about the country and how the US Agency for International Development (USAID) is working with local partners to increase food security and better connect farmers to markets.

The Huntington Music Box 

Hear something new, share something old. Good music like a good book feels like it should be shared and enjoyed by as many people as can get their “ears” on it. Valley Stage Productions has had the good fortune to hear and witness a lot of music from the concerts we’ve been able to attend and produce as well as conferences of musicians and just normal acquisition of CDs and LPs throughout the years.

There is a box of CDs that Valley Stage will “initiate” on the table as you enter the Huntington Library that you are free to take, borrow or add to. Take what you like, listen to it for as long as you like and share! We’d also suggest that musicians contribute their work to the collection. Exposure to your compositions could result in people attending a performance of yours in the future or perhaps an acknowledgement of your talent the next time you stop into Beaudry’s or cross paths at a Huntington function.

If you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to contact Don Sheldon;

 802-434-4563 or don@valleystage.net
