Summer Events: PSO Field Trips

New series explores the connections that create our human experience

Our new summer series features five performances and guest speakers in different locations around the Seacoast. PSO Field Trips will explore how humanity inhabits this earth and how the arts and sciences intertwine to create our human experience. Each field trip provides a different view of our magnificent world: take a glimpse into the past world, lay your finger on the pulse of our present world, experience music and food from around our world, and glimpse the edges of our spiritual world.
