    - The practice of Shinrin-yoku allows us to jump the great wall of words and book learning that keep us from experiencing the natural world on its own wonderful terms. Learn the benefits of Shinrin-Yoku, on meditative walks through meadows and woodlands. Each meeting consists of two slowly paced easy walks, prefaced by an exercise for increasing awareness through the senses. Julie Woodward one of Teatown’s Wildflower Island Guides, will lead these walks to help people find some moments of boundless space and time, where, as the great environmentalist John Muir once wrote, “the galling harness of civilization drops off” and “every leaf seems to speak.” Please dress for the weather, as we will experience the forest environment as it is offered to us. Adults Only. Members Free, Non-members $7. Programs require pre-registration. To register, call 914-762-2912 x 110.

    - Connecticut Choral Society Announces an Open “Summer Sing” and Auditions for Prospective Members

    The Connecticut Choral Society (CCS) is launching its 2016-2017 season with an informal community Summer Sing of Carl Orff’s masterpiece Carmina Burana, followed by a reception with light refreshments. Cost is $10 for singers (includes use of the music) and is free for non-singers.

    Carmina Burana will be conducted by CCS Artistic and Music Director Eric Dale Knapp. He will also give a preview CCS’s 2016-2017 season.

    The Summer Sing is open both to singers (high school and older), and to non-singing music-lovers who would like to listen as audience members. This is an opportunity to learn the background of Orff’s capstone piece, to sing the choral sections, and to experience the rehearsal techniques of a high-caliber choral ensemble. Current CCS singers are looking forward to “tuning up their voices” at the Summer Sing and to meeting prospective new members.

    An appointment to audition for the Choral Society can be arranged before the Summer Sing or in September. Singers are needed for all voice parts, particularly tenors and basses.

    The Connecticut Choral Society, a 75-voice auditioned chorus, sings a broad repertoire of classical and contemporary music. Musical plans for 2016-2017 include Candlelight and Carols concerts (December 9, 10, and 11), Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 (April 22, with the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra), and two spring concerts (The Poet’s Quill) on May 21st and May 22nd.

    For the month of September, CCS will rehearse Monday nights (7:30 – 9:30) at Valley Presbyterian Church (Brookfield), with all subsequent rehearsals at South Britain Congregational Church in Southbury. For more information or to schedule an audition, contact the Connecticut Choral Society at 888-927-2933 or visit the website at http://www.ctchoralsociety.com.

    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

    Called the ͞great American romantic͟ by the New York Times, Edwin McCain has built an enviable career over the past 20 years by balancing his massive pop success with the year-round touring schedule of a tireless troubadour. His hit songs, authentic spirit and surprisingly affable sense of humor keep fans coming back time and time again for nights that feel more like parties with old friends than rock concerts. After recording two of the biggest love songs in the history of pop music, McCain now performs upwards of 100 shows annually throughout the US as a solo artist, with his full band or his acoustic trio. Recently, he’s added orchestras to his repertoire, performing with symphonies in select markets where he brings his powerful songs to majestic new heights.
