This Weekend: Art Walk, Vivaldi and Volunteer Opportunities
Bethesda Patch brings you the best of the weekend.
It’s the second Friday of the month, so get ready for Bethesda Art Walk from 6-9 p.m. Downtown Bethesda art galleries will stay open late and showcase the work of local, national and international artists. You can walk to the galleries, or if you’d rather not brave the cold, you can take the free Bethesda Circulator.
Also this Friday, Imagination Stage begins its run of “Aquarium,” a special performance geared towards very young children. The interactive show features gentle music, puppets and props and will run through Feb. 6. Check Imagination Stage’s website for more information.
Saturday evening, the Cedar Lane Chamber Orchestra and Adult Choir will perform the music of Vivaldi during a free benefit concert at the Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church. Donations will benefit a scholarship fund for a first-year Montgomery College student.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to stop by the Dennis & Phillip Ratner Museum, why not visit this Sunday? The museum is hosting a weekly photography exhibit called “Slices of Life” that features the work of 10 local photographers. The exhibit is open Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend, and once again the county is encouraging residents to use their day off on Monday to volunteer. There’s plenty of service opportunities planned across the county and in Bethesda, so be sure to check our events calendar. We’ll also bring you some volunteer picks later in the weekend. In the meantime, be sure to upload your volunteer event to our calendar if we missed it.
Happy weekend from Patch!
