There are approximately 58 vehicle bridges currently spanning the Connecticut River and ten were chosen as representative examples for the Connecticut River Museum's 2013 exhibit 'Crossing the Connecticut: Bridges of the Connecticut River'. The exhibit features several different styles of bridge design and explores how people's ideas of what bridges should look like and how they reflect how their communities have changed over time. The exhibit features many objects and images from the Museum's collections as well as paintings, original toll signs, documents and other artifacts on loan from other institutions.

-Collomore Concert - Nellie McKay;

Music

Chester Meeting House, 4 Liberty Street, Chester, CT , 06412

Singer and songwriter Nellie McKay will perform in the historic Chester Meeting House on Sunday, May 12 at 5:00 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Collomore Music Series in its 39th season.

She has been cited by the New York Times for “the beauty and ease of her singing,” and by LA Weekly as having “staggering musical talents.” She is also described as hard to categorize. While her music is as tuneful and clever as the best of the Great American Songbook, beneath the charming melodic surface is a wit that cuts, and a sharply tuned social conscience. Steve Murray, Cabaret Scenes, described Nellie McKay as “an amazing performer; quirky and brilliant, smart and adventurous.”

The concert is expected to sell out, so tickets should be purchased now.
