WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School's band will be marching this Memorial Day weekend in new matching polos provided by the MGRS Friends of the Arts. 
The Mount Greylock Marching Mounties will be sporting brand new matching black polos this year as they march local parades. A gift from the MGRS Friends of the Arts, the new shirts mark a return to MGRS tradition, where the matching shirts or uniforms were in use for years before the pandemic. Every band, orchestra and chorus student at MGRS, in middle and high school, will be issued a polo to wear during performances, including orchestra and chorus.
"We're very thankful that students have something that's comfortable and looks nice for all performances. It helps identify us as a community," said band director Jacqueline Vinette.
They will perform  Sunday, May 28, on Main Street in Hancock, at 11 a.m.; Sunday, May 28, on North Main Street in Lanesborough, at 2 p.m.; and Monday, May 29, on Spring Street in Williamstown, MA, at 11 a.m.
Memorial Day parades in Hancock, Lanesborough and Williamstown are free to the public.

Clark Opening Lecture for 'Trembling Earth' Exhibit

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.— On Saturday, June 10, in conjunction with the opening of its newest exhibition, "Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth," the Clark Art Institute hosts a lecture by Jay A. Clarke, the exhibition curator and Rothman Family Curator, Art Institute of Chicago, in its auditorium at 11 am.
Free; no registration is required. 
According to a press release:
"Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth" is the first exhibition in the United States to consider how the noted Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863–1944) employed nature to convey meaning in his art. Munch is regarded primarily as a figure painter, and his most celebrated images (including his iconic The Scream) are connected to themes of love, anxiety, longing, and death. Yet, landscape plays an essential role in a large portion of Munch's work. Edvard Munch: Trembling Earth considers this important, but less explored aspect of the artist's career.
