A new musical with jazz and opera by Madeline McNeill, and lyrics by Ellen Welcker. Bring a picnic to Olmsted Brothers Green in Kendall Yards. The story is set in a land with a river running through it. On one side is Music Valley where artists live. On the other is Builder's Ridge, a neighborhood of tools and technology . Two friends from opposite ends are faced with changing times and a strange sickness. Music Valley is performed by an all female ensemble of singers, a double bass player, a marimbaist and a dancer.
