Gallery Guides will attend eight training sessions and will work with live animals. HMNH is looking for volunteers who are able to commit to one morning or afternoon a weekend for one year.

Pops performances set

Conducted by Tom Everett, the band’s repertoire is modeled after the Boston Pops Orchestra, including a variety of guest soloists, classical overtures, Broadway hits, and film scores.
