Another Autumn, A Harvest of Song : When the air grows crisp and days shorter, change is in the air. It is an exciting time of gathering in and thanksgiving. Even the stars of heaven grace our harvest tables when adorned with asters and chrysanthemum.

This is my favorite time of year, when the spirit is rising toward the climactic celebration of Samhain, more popularly known as Halloween. For me it is a time of apple picking, watching football and feasting with friends and lovers. When it comes to something to sing about, only Christmas is more musical in my book.

The fall program kicks off with a joyous celebration of apples and what you can do with them in the Disney gem “The Apple Song”. “September Song” by Kurt Weill orients us in time and place and invokes sharing. The old-time favorite, “When the Frost is On the Pumpkin” is in a new setting by Chicago composer Ted Jacobs.

Editor's Note: Stay tuned for Songs of the Season all week, featuring some really talented local kids and teens performing some holiday tunes on stage at Imurj, a collaborative art and music space in downtown Raleigh .

If you've been to a Theatre Raleigh or N.C. Theatre production in recent years, you might have seen Riley Campbell on stage.

The talented Raleigh teen was last seen as Moth in Theatre Raleigh's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," a show that is part of the local theater group's growing family series. She's also appeared in "The Wolf," another Theatre Raleigh family show, and "Carousel."
