The Church is pleased to welcome Pierson High School seniors for a performance of "Silent Strings" an ensemble of music and poetry celebrating the joys and wonders of the natural environment. Together– poet Meredith Spolarich, violinist Elizabeth Hallock, and harpist Miachesca Gangemi constructed the musical program that incorporates both instrumental classics as well as their very own written pieces. The performance is a part of their Creativity, Action, Service (CAS) project for the International Baccalaureate (IB) program at the high school. The students have fused their passion for the environment and their love of music and poetry to create a performance that highlights both the beauty of nature and the urgency to protect it. Further emphasizing their love and support of the environment the students encourage attendees, upon entry, to make a cash donation of any amount with all proceeds going to benefit the Friends of Long Pond Greenbelt Nature Center.
Friends of the Long Pond Greenbelt, celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2022, is an all-volunteer organization that works to advance the preservation, stewardship, appreciation, and enjoyment of the Long Pond Greenbelt: that unique expanse of coastal plain ponds, freshwater swamps, wetlands, and woodlands encompassing more than 800 protected acres. The Long Pond Greenbelt stretches six miles between the villages of Sag Harbor and Sagaponack in the Town of Southampton on the East End of Long Island, New York.
