  • | 1:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, exhibit, museum
    - Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We’ve chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status and the personalities behind the ever-present decision we all face daily - what to wear?

    Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.

    Location: Edgell Memorial Building – 3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA
    Parking: Please park on 3 Oak St. (street parking available) or in the Village Hall lot (2 Oak St.)

    - Stunning in her talent and performance, saxophonist Grace Kelly plays with the heart and passion of an old soul yet also with the zest and energy of a 24 year old. Having played with such artists as Harry Connick Jr., Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, and Esperanza Spalding, Kelly is highly regarded and respected in the jazz world. Despite her young age, Kelly has already won several Boston Music Awards and was named “Jazz Act of the Year” at the 2013 New England Music Awards.

    Most recently Grace is appearing regularly as a member of Stephen Colbert's late night house band Stay Human, led by bandleader Jon Batiste. She was also stoked to be invited to join a badass 10-piece house band for NBC's new weekly variety show "Maya & Marty" starring Maya Rudolph & Martin Short produced by Lorne Michaels.

  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • | 8:00pm - 11:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, singer/songwriter
    - Amy Black is a touring singer/songwriter originally living in Boston, now based in Nashville, who has received critical acclaim for her original music, soulful vocals and her energetic stage performance.

    Black’s third solo release, “The Muscle Shoals Sessions” (June 2015) was recorded at historic FAME studios in her family’s homeland of Muscle Shoals, AL and features Spooner Oldham, the McCrary Sisters and Will Kimbrough. The result was, "a blend of sultry desire, ardent passion...a sound that’s both tough and tender” (Relix). "To showcase her true potential as a bluesy, R&B heavy hitter, Amy Black had to go home. Black’s soulful chops shine.” (Elmore)

    Recording the album at FAME, Black never fails to nail the spot where gospel, blues and R&B collide — and transform into soul. Blues in Britain wrote, “Black Is blessed with a deeply soulful voice that melds elements of Dusty Springfield, Mavis Staples and Alberta Hunter.” Inspired by Etta James, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Mavis Staples and so many others who recorded some of modern music’s most iconic songs in this little Alabama hamlet, Black’s project pays homage to magic made at both FAME and Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, as well as to her beloved grandparents, and the cherished memories she carries of childhood sojourns.
