Info

EC-CHAP is proud to provide opportunities for local artists to share their unique work and talent. Our winter season at The Packing House includes a new "Special Local Artist Performance Program". Specific performances that comprise this Program typically evolve from our Talent Showcase series (the 2nd Wednesday of the month) and will be added to our regular performance schedule. This inaugural show, rescheduled from September, features musician and poet Edmund Smith.

Ed began his musical meanderings in his basement home in Brooklyn, where he helped assemble a ragtag band of adolescents known as the Pig Sisters. The song, 'It's Time to Revolt' was among their several excursions to fall asleep in the basement that summer. After that, Ed took to classical guitar and also began building cacophonous percussion instruments, mainly out of plumbing materials, which later came to be known as cancaphones. These instruments are featured in many of Ed's shows to this day.

Ed will be joined by his band Presuminati as well as two members of the Drone Orchestra.

Join us for an interesting evening of original music and spoken word. This program is hosted by the "Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance" (EC-CHAP). Doors 7 p.m. / Show 7:30 p.m. Soft drinks and snacks available. We are pleased to offer our exclusive "BYOB&F" model - Bring Your Own Beverage & Food (Wine & Beer Only - I.D. Required).  You can also bring your paid ticket to Willington Pizza House (or WP Too) for eat-in or take-out the night of the show and receive 15% off your meal purchase. If you're feeling sassy, SPECIFICALLY ask for "The Packing House" pizza!
