This week the Greencastle Virtual Music Festival celebrates Thanksgiving with an all-new program that debuts at at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 25.

The program features music from DePauw School of Music professors Ming-Hui Kuo (percussion) and May Phang (piano), a song from Bobbie Lancaster, a jazz tune from Sandy Williams (guitar) and bassist Jesse Wittman (who were a hit last week,) and a poem written by Joe Heithaus just for the occasion.

A beyond-Greencastle treat will be “Swans for Relief,” a video featuring 32 premier ballerinas from 22 dance companies in 14 countries dancing to the music of Saint-Saëns’s “The Swan” as performed by Baltimore cellist Wade Davis. It’s a spectacular example of the creativity born from the coronavirus shutdown.

Join many of the performers and host Eric Edberg for a live “music party” on Zoom including post-concert discussion at 7:30pm Wednesday at
