    - 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.

  • | NATL - National Holidays
    - 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

  • | 6:00pm - 7:30pm | Arts and Entertainment, Hudson Chorale Auditions
    - Hudson Chorale, the area’s largest mixed voice chorus, is welcoming new members in all voice parts (SATB) to join them for an exciting 2016-2017 season that will appeal to choral singers of a wide range of musical preferences. Singer-friendly auditions will begin on Monday, September 12, 2016, by appointment, prior to the first rehearsal. Rehearsals take place on Monday evenings from 7:30 - 10:00 p.m. at the Pleasantville Presbyterian Church, 400 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville, NY. To receive additional information and/or to schedule a time for an audition, contact Jeanne Wygant at JeanneWygant@optonline.net or call (914) 478-0074.

    The first concert program, which will take place on Friday, January 27 and Sunday, January 29, 2017, is entitled Variations on a Text. The program will include diverse and contrasting settings of the Ave Maria, the Te Deum, and Sicut Cervus in Latin and English, plus more. The concert, with organ or piano accompaniment, will take plac at the Chapel at Maryknoll in Ossining, NY.

    The second concert program of the season, entitled Requiem, will be presented on Friday, June 2 and Sunday, June 4, 2017. It features Mozart’s Requiem (with full orchestra and soloists), along with a collection of pieces that illustrate the different ways in which composers have used the music to express the emotions associated with death, loss and mourning - each in their own unique way. The additional works include Henry Purcell’s Funeral Music for Queen Mary, along with other pieces by Johannes Brahms, Antonio Lotti, and American-born William Schuman, as well as a selection of Negro Spirituals. The concert will be performed in the wonderful acoustics of the church of St. John the Evangelist in White Plains, NY.

    Maestro Ira Spaulding, the Chorale’s Music Director, is a choral conductor, singer and choral master class instructor whose career spans 36 years of performance in more than 60 countries. He is currently Professor of Vocal and Choral Music at City College of New York and maintains a career abroad as a singer and conductor. The chorus’ Accompanist/Assistant Music Director, David Baranowski, is a household name to choral singers in the Westchester area due to his virtuosity on piano, keyboard, organ and harpsichord.

  • | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, Taconic Opera Gala
    - Great food, gorgeous arias about children, and a tribute to honorees for their contributions to the arts in their communities.

    Taconic Opera, now in its 19th season and past recipient of the Arts Organization of the Year Award in Westchester County, will hold its annual creative and highly entertaining fundraiser on Thursday, September 15, 2016, at 7:00 pm at the C.V. Rich Mansion, 305 Ridgeway, White Plains, NY. The Gala’s theme, Opera Has a Baby, will feature visiting artists who will perform famous operatic arias about young children while guests dine on a sumptuous meal in peaceful serenity - minus the noise, mess and spills of young children! This event is an upbeat and unique way to honor three persons who have contributed to the arts and to their communities: Jun Nakabayashi, Georgianna Mitchell and Darrell Babboni. All Gala proceeds support Taconic Opera’s diverse and exciting 2016-2017 season of events, details of which can be found on the company’s website.

    Jun Nakabayashi, Taconic Opera’s Music Director and Conductor for 16 of its 19 seasons and has not only been an invaluable asset and a main contributor to the company’s longevity. He also serves on the faculty of the acclaimed Hoff-Barthelson Music School in Scarsdale where he conducts the Festival Orchestra of young musicians and gives classes in conducting. The orchestra was selected by the New York Philharmonic for a unique partnership called the Philharmonic Academy, Jr., whose goal is to help prepare the next generation of orchestra players.

    Georgianna (Gem) Mitchell has had extensive not-for-profit board and volunteer experience over the last twenty years. With her background in business management, she joined the Taconic Opera Board in 2009 to contribute to the continued success of the company and has also been a generous supporter of the arts in general.

    Darrell Babboni is the president of one of the largest construction and home maintenance companies in Westchester County, HoneyDoMen. A self-made entrepreneur, he is being honored not only for his longstanding support of Taconic Opera but also for his philanthropy in support of several organizations and services in his community that help the most vulnerable.

    Attendance at the Gala will be by a partially tax deductible donation: Gold $250; Silver, $200; Bronze $150. Discounts are available for groups of two or more and tables for eight.

General Director Dan Montez remembers, “When she first sang for me, it took me a few minutes to realize I was listening to something astounding…I had never heard anything like it in my lifetime. She is, hands down, my favorite soprano in the world, and that is no exaggeration.” It is almost certain that Australia’s La Stupenda, Dame Joan Sutherland, would happily share the moniker with Ms. Mondanaro upon hearing her perform. Audiences will have the opportunity to experience the magic for themselves at a satisfaction-guaranteed performance on Sunday, September 25, 2016, at 3:00 pm at the Music Conservatory of Westchester, 216 Central Ave., White Plains, NY.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
