In celebration of the centennial and Founder’s Day, the park partnered with UMASS Lowell Music Department, Angkor Dance Troupe, and Flying Orb Productions to produce a world premiere performance of community music and dance entitled, “The Pulse of the Machine: the Beat of our Hearts”. The foundation for music was created from the sounds of the weave room integrated with traditional folk music from the cultural communities of Lowell. The dance performance included folk dances from across the world representing the beautiful cultural traditions which exist in Lowell today. The show can be seen at:
