On September 15, as the sun goes down, Claude Bragdon-inspired lanterns will light up at the Maplewood Rose Garden and music will take to the air. It's part of the Maplewood Neighborhood Association's "Historic Maplewood Home Tour." At 7:30 p.m., music begins with a drum circle and a Native American flutist. At 8 pm, the lanterns, suspended from trees surrounding the main gazebo, will be illuminated, and Resonanz vocal ensemble will sing selections from the "Rochester Songbook." The event is a "21st century rendition of Bragdon's 1915 Festival of Song and Light," according to Cheryl Lenhard, one of the event coordinators.
