Fifty years after Gloria began raising her voice and championing those of others, her vision is as urgent as ever. Gloria’s belief in talking circles as a catalyst for change offers us all a path forward. The first act is Gloria’s story; the second is our own.

Steven Burgess - President and Vintner of Burgess Cellars
Steven Burgess was actually born during the winery’s first harvest!
Steven Burgess did not always work in the family business. He earned degrees in Agricultural Systems Management and Agricultural Business as well as a Wine-Marketing Certificate. Steven was a high school physics teacher, wine representative, night barman and restorer of vintage trailers. In 2004 his father, Tom, persuaded him to return to Burgess Cellars. In 2013, Steven was promoted to President of Burgess Cellars making it a true Second Generation family business.
In addition to many aspects of managing the vineyards, winery and travelling throughout the United States promoting Burgess Cellars’ wine, he can often be seen doing some carpentry, welding, repairing a vehicle, mending stone walls from the 1800s or helping with the harvest. Steven fills his rare spare time cycling, camping, tinkering and cleaning up after his kids. He serves on the Wine Service Co-op Board of Directors and is a Volunteer Fire Fighter for the local station.
Chef Peter Davis
Ask Chef Peter Davis to describe his culinary philosophy, and he’ll tell you “fresh and honest,” or the long version: “fresh from the farm and honest-to-goodness New England cooking.” Davis is an avid conservationist, with close ties to New England’s fishing and farming communities. He is proud about the use of products grown using sustainable agriculture methods and native ingredients when creating dishes at Henrietta’s Table, the restaurant he opened in The Charles Hotel in 1995. Chef Davis was one of the first proponents of local products, and he has featured his local suppliers of fresh produce, fish, and game in his cookbook Fresh and Honest.
Davis is a Boston native who honed his skills around the globe before returning to his hometown. After cooking in the kitchens of the Hyatt Singapore, the Bali Hyatt, the Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong, and the Beverly Hills Peninsula, he was tapped to create a restaurant within the Charles that reflected the hotel’s hybrid culture of contemporary energy and classic New England style. Henrietta’s Table, named for the 1,000-pound pet pig kept in Martha’s Vineyard by Charles Hotel owner Dick Friedman, has earned raves in The New York Times, wherein Pooja Bhatia claimed it “has the richest brunch in town” and sang the praises of its “perfectly cooked steaks, fish and pork” and its “rustic, easygoing vibes.” In 1999 Food & Wine called the dining experience “outstanding,” and in Travel + Leisure Frank Rose called the restaurant “wonderful.”
In addition to serving The Charles Hotel’s hungry guests and visitors, Henrietta’s Table has played host to, and provided food for, an annual concert to benefit the Farm School, a family run educational farm in Athol, Massachusetts. The Farm School provides multi-day residential school-year and summer programs for more than 1,500 young people and their teachers, a yearlong apprentice program to train adults in modern sustainable agriculture, and an on-site school. It doesn’t get any more fresh and honest than that.
Stephane Wrembel Band : The Django Experiment V Album Release Concert
7:30pm & 10pm | $35
The New York Times recently said: "Perhaps the most creative improviser in Gypsy jazz today, Mr. Wrembel plays the guitar with a rich and colorful lyricism.".
The New York Observer said, "Stephane Wrembel represents the living face of Gypsy jazz" and Rolling Stone Magazine has called him "a revelation".
The Django Experiment V is the fifth in a series of recordings from Award-winning guitarist Stephane Wrembel in tribute to French guitarist Django Reinhardt, who is widely considered one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth century. On The Django Experiment V, Stephane Wrembel is once again accompanied by long-time collaborators Thor Jensen (guitar), Ari Folman Cohen (bass), Nick Anderson (drums) and special guests Nick Driscoll (saxophone and clarinet) and Daisy Castro (violin).
About Stephane Wrembel
Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world. The breadth and range of his playing and compositions are unmatched. To say that Wrembel-- who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside-- has already had a remarkable career would be an under-statement. This prolific, virtuoso guitarist has been releasing a steady stream of music since 2006 and has truly made his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. Stephane Wrembel is widely known for "Bistro Fada", the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar winning film and Grammy Award winning soundtrack, Midnight In Paris.
Born in Paris and raised in Fontainebleau, the home of Impressionism and Django, Wrembel has been based in the New York City region for the past 20 years and since his studies at Berklee. He has toured around the world, and is very active on the musical scene in many countries including USA, Canada, France, Israel and India. Recently, Stephane has performed as a headliner at the legendary Carnegie Hall and at The Town Hall in New York as well as at the Festival Django Reinhardt in France. Wrembel has also headlined at Lincoln Center, played major Festivals, recorded and shared the stage with a long list of world renowned musicians such as Al Di Meola, Stochelo Rosenberg, Sam Bush and David Grisman.

Jersey Boys presented by Broadway in Boston
They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of.

Go behind the music and inside the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in the Tony Award®-winning true-life musical phenomenon, JERSEY BOYS. From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, this is the musical that’s just too good to be true.
FEATURING THE LEGENDARY TOP TEN HITS:
