In a evening of art-inspired protest that includes puppetry, music, and video, Water is life. Protect it. and ARTivism Virginia members unite as the Sun Sing collective to premiere the song “To The River,” aimed at stopping the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines. The activists recently focused their creative energies around original songs dedicated to endangered creatures in the YouTube video series,“Who Will Sing For Me?” Vocalist Bernadette “BJ” Brown, who sings for the cerulean warbler, says “I’m choosing to use my voice to empower others as well. To stand against brutality and harms being done to this earth and our water.”

Friday, April 26. $12-13, 6pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
