The Insiders: You can’t drive a GMO, but you can learn about them at Red River Theatres
You’ve probably heard the phrase GMO thrown around quite a bit lately, assuming you can hear something that is being thrown. We were pretty excited when we first heard about it, but that’s because we thought it was the newest Porsche model to hit the streets. Once we found out it was gross stuff in our food, we were decidedly less thrilled.
Knowledge, though, is power. And powers can lead to superpowers. So if you’re a fan of knowledge, and want to maybe fly someday, you should stop by Red River Theatres this evening at 6:30 for a screening of GMO OMG, a film chronicling director Jeremy Siefert’s quest to learn more about GMOs.
The GMO controversy is a hot-button topic in New Hampshire (quick rankings: easy button > hot button), and the film will be presented by the New Hampshire GMO Labeling Campaign. Members of that group will be on hand for a question-and-answer session about GMO labeling in New Hampshire after the film. For more information, visit redrivertheatres.org.
If the sight of this column every morning makes you want to sing out loud, nobody would blame you. And today, someone might actually hire you. The Concord Chorale is hosting one of its twice-yearly open sings, at the Concord Community Music School at 7 p.m., where prospective chorale members can view a rehearsal, meet up with the members and music director and sing the musical selections for the semester.
Of course, the chorale can’t accept everyone – imagine how big the stage would have to be! So those interested in auditioning after taking part in the open sing can sign up with the music director before the next week’s rehearsal. Auditions are “based on the singer’s ability to prepare an assigned excerpt of music, vocalization and general musicianship,” according to the group’s website. Singers of all ages and all walks of life – or even a few runs of life, probably – are welcome.
If you’d rather watch someone else do the singing, stop by Hermanos tonight when Dave Gerard takes the mic at 6:30.
