    - 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.

  • | 7:00pm - 7:30pm | Religious Events, Relaxation Meditation Chanting Praying
    - Are you looking for some time for quiet contemplation? Are you looking for a worship experience in which there is no sermon and nobody telling you what to believe before you're sure you believe it? The a service of Taize evening prayer may be for you!

    This 30 minute service is inspired by the international ecumenical monastic community of Taize, France. This service consists of simple, modern chants sung repetitively or in a round, a brief reading of Scripture, a long of period of peaceful silence, and some time for intercessory prayer.

    There is no preaching, no monetary collection, no attempt at recruiting church members; it is simply a time to come together in song and prayer. People who have attended often comment on the rich spiritual atmosphere of the service. Its serenity and simplicity provide a wonderful mid-week opportunity to feed one's soul.

  • | 7:00pm - 7:30pm | Religious Events, Relaxation Meditation Chanting Praying
    - Are you looking for some time for quiet contemplation? Are you looking for a worship experience in which there is no sermon and nobody telling you what to believe before you're sure you believe it? The a service of Taize evening prayer may be for you!

    This 30 minute service is inspired by the international ecumenical monastic community of Taize, France. This service consists of simple, modern chants sung repetitively or in a round, a brief reading of Scripture, a long of period of peaceful silence, and some time for intercessory prayer.

    There is no preaching, no monetary collection, no attempt at recruiting church members; it is simply a time to come together in song and prayer. People who have attended often comment on the rich spiritual atmosphere of the service. Its serenity and simplicity provide a wonderful mid-week opportunity to feed one's soul.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    CHJ OPEN HOUSE BRUNCH AND FIRST DAY OF SUNDAY SCHOOL FEATURES
    ADULT ED PROGRAM ON Dorothy Parker

    Bagels and Lox and good company are part of the allure of the Congregation for Humanistic Judaism’s annual Open House brunch and first day of Sunday School. The back-from-summer event on September 11 at Bedford Middle School, 88 North Avenue, Westport, features an introduction to the people, school, and adult education programs of the Congregation. The public is invited free of charge.
    “This is a great opportunity to learn about the Congregation, Humanistic Judaism, our Sunday School and adult education programs,” says Rachel Albanese of Wilton, chair of membership. “Guests will feel welcome in our community.” She will be on hand to talk to new and prospective members. Lisa Sullivan, a Norwalk resident and former Sunday School committee member, and her daughter, Elise, are long-time members who discovered CHJ through the Open House.
    Dana Preis of Easton, a past-president of CHJ, hopes those seeking a Jewish community will "come and check us out. Our approach is refreshing. CHJ's focus on humanistic values and appreciation for Jewish culture makes us an important and welcoming presence in the community."
    Sunday School begins promptly at 9:30 am. All children are invited to attend their age- appropriate class at no charge. Parents may remain with their children until they are comfortable.
    Adult Ed will present a slideshow talk by David Shafer about the life of Dorothy Parker (maiden name was Rothschild, 1893-1967 ) Parker was famous in the 1930s for play reviews, short poetry, and general wittiness She was a model of a humanist who strove for social justice, and for her efforts was blacklisted in Hollywood and forced to appear before Joe McCarthy. The program will be followed by a presentation of her very short two-person funny play, Here We Are.
    The CHJ Sunday School provides a contemporary Jewish education for children in kindergarten through Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Children learn about Jewish holidays, history, literature, and traditions of the Jewish people in a warm, participatory environment. Hebrew, music, art, dance, and crafts enrich the curriculum. Jewish and Humanistic values and their relation to interpersonal, social and environmental issues are explored in all areas of the curriculum. Small class size fosters involvement and learning.
    In addition to Sunday School, the Congregation has a full calendar of activities for adults including Jewish holiday celebrations, a wide array of weekend evening and Sunday morning programs, discussion groups, and a book group. Members hail from almost every town in Fairfield County.
    Jewish and Interfaith families interested in learning about the Congregation are invited to attend this Open House. Programs conclude at 11:45 AM. For additional information, and to let the Congregation know to expect you, please call (203) 293-8867 or email info@humanisticjews.org.

  • | 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

  • | 7:00pm - 7:30pm | Religious Events, Relaxation Meditation Chanting Praying
    - Are you looking for some time for quiet contemplation? Are you looking for a worship experience in which there is no sermon and nobody telling you what to believe before you're sure you believe it? The a service of Taize evening prayer may be for you!

    This 30 minute service is inspired by the international ecumenical monastic community of Taize, France. This service consists of simple, modern chants sung repetitively or in a round, a brief reading of Scripture, a long of period of peaceful silence, and some time for intercessory prayer.

    There is no preaching, no monetary collection, no attempt at recruiting church members; it is simply a time to come together in song and prayer. People who have attended often comment on the rich spiritual atmosphere of the service. Its serenity and simplicity provide a wonderful mid-week opportunity to feed one's soul.
