Vanaver Caravan Celebrates Woody Guthrie At QCC
The Vanaver Caravan, a group of musicians, singers and dancers, presents "Pastures of Plenty," a celebration of Woody Guthrie in dance, music and song. The performance, part of the Queensborough Community College (QCC) Professional Performing Arts Series, will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 19 at the QCC Theater.
The performers are known throughout the United States and Europe for their down-home spirit, vigorous clog dancing, square dance innovations and other dances derived from American traditions. In "Pastures of Plenty" they animate Guthrie’s songs, such as "This Land is Your Land" and others, with fresh interpretations and showmanship.
The college is located at 56th Avenue and Springfield Boulevard in Bayside. Ample free parking is available. Tickets are $32, $29, and $26 and can be purchased through the QCC box office in person or by phone at 631-6311. Box office hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
