CT Choral Society Chamber Singers to perform at Heritage Village http://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/neighbors/3284-lori-mchugh-1498570422-14985704223284-lori-mchugh-1498570422-1498570422 http://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/neighbors/3284-lori-mchugh-1498570422-14985704223284-lori-mchugh-1498570422-1498570422

An Evening of Song: Chamber Singers of the Connecticut Choral Society

The Chamber Singers of the Connecticut Choral Society will be performing in concert at Sarah Cooke Hall in Heritage Village on Friday, June 30th, 7:00 pm, capping off a very special month for Heritage Village as it marks its 50th anniversary.

The Chamber Singers is a select group of 20 voices from the larger 65-voice Connecticut Choral Society (CCS), which for over 35 years has made music that makes a difference in peoples’ lives, locally, regionally, and internationally.

CCS has appeared numerous times in Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Woolsey Hall at Yale and has toured England, Canada, Europe, Australia and China, but they have remained dedicated foremost to bringing beautiful and inspiring works to local audiences in Connecticut. In 2014, CCS was named by WFSB in Hartford as one of the top five choral groups in the state.

The Chamber Singers is an “ambassador group” of the larger CCS, with the explicit mission of bringing great a cappella choral music into the lives of those who may not have the mobility or means to attend the CCS’s major concerts. As such, the Chamber Singers offer a wide repertoire of choral music - from madrigals to spirituals and folk songs to pop hits from the great American Songbook - in venues like libraries, town festivals, benefit events, assisted living facilities and senior centers. Formed in 1988, one early highlight was a 1990 appearance on the network TV show, Good Morning America.

The program for the Heritage Village concert will include a sampling of the Chamber Singers’ varied repertoire. It will feature American Songbook standards (When I Fall In Love, Moon River and Music, Music, Music), an ancient madrigal by Thomas Morley
(My Bonnie Lass She Smileth) and a more modern one by the witty and irreverent Peter Schickele (aka PDQ Bach) called My Bonnie Lass She Smelleth. The audience will enjoy two lively spirituals: Ain’a That Good News and Every Time I Feel the Spirit.

Pete Seeger’s beautiful folk song To My Old Brown Earth will also be performed, along with a special surprise. “I’m going to keep people guessing on this one,” Ron says, “but it was especially selected for this concert - a song that was a #1 hit in 1967, to celebrate this 50th anniversary for Heritage Village.”

Tickets for this not-to-be-missed concert on Friday, June 30th, at 7 pm, are available at the door for $10. For more information: ChamberSingers@ctchoralsociety.org, or call (860) 921-3075.

The Milford Performance Center is pleased to present Lords of 52nd Street – The Original Legends of the Billy Joel Band.

Friday, July 7th,  Doors open at 7:00 PM, Private Meet & Greet at 7:30 PM & Showtime at 8:00 PM   

The Lords of 52nd Street are Billy Joel’s original band… and they are coming to The Milford Performance Center!  Billy gave the band their name back in the 70’s.  They do not need to copy or reinvent the original music since they are the guys you saw playing at Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall, Nassau Coliseum and the countless other venues during those Billy Joel concerts of the 1970’s and 1980’s.  THIS IS NOT A TRIBUTE BAND!

The Lords of 52nd Street are the legendary band who recorded and toured the world for many years with the “Piano Man.” .   These guys helped to create one of the most recognizable sounds in music recording the sax, drum and guitar solos on over 100 million albums sold with Billy Joel as well.  They also performed all over the world for decades with Billy as well as their own personal careers.

The band is led by Richie Cannata on tenor saxophone, Liberty DeVitto on drums and percussion, and Russell Javors on rhythm guitar. Their collaboration helped change the face of music. They have worked individually with multi-platinum artists, lending their talents to some of the greatest musicians in the world.  After 30+ years the band has finally reunited, and havn’t missed a step, with this mind blowing show. Critics love them and their performances have been blowing away fans of all ages.  Don’t miss them on Friday, July 7, at The Milford Performance Center.  There is also a limited Meet & Greet before the show with only 30 tickets available on a first come first serve basis. All shows at MPC help multiple local Charities.  This show helps Boys & Girls Club and Food 2 Kids.  Please see a list, on the MPC website, of kid friendly foods to bring and help fill our donation box.

Doors open at 7:00 PM & the Show Starts at 8PM. Refreshments, wine and beer is available. Tickets are available online at www.MilfordPerformanceCenter.org or at the door on show day.

About The Milford Performance Center

The Milford Performance Center is located at The Parsons Govt. Center in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium.  MPC, a 501(c)3, is culturally dedicated to nurturing the arts in the community by creating new and exciting performance experiences, from Classic Rock to Classical Music, Jazz, Blues & Comedy to Country, Bluegrass, Folk and more.  Located at the intersection of W.

Bethel Resident Dr. Patrick Higgins Appointed Immaculate High School Principal http://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/neighbors/3271-dr-patrick-higgins-appointed-immaculate-high-school-principal-14979784733271-dr-patrick-higgins-appointed-immaculate-high-school-principal-1497978473 http://news.hamlethub.com/southbury/neighbors/3271-dr-patrick-higgins-appointed-immaculate-high-school-principal-14979784733271-dr-patrick-higgins-appointed-immaculate-high-school-principal-1497978473

Dr. Patrick D. Higgins, a Bethel resident, will assume the post of school Principal of Immaculate High School on July 1.

Dr. Higgins will take the seat of former Principal Joe Carmen, who resigned from the position during the summer of 2016 to take a position as the Director of Leadership Development at Quinnipiac University.  School President Mary R. Maloney assumed the role as Interim Principal this past year.

One of Dr. Higgins’ academic goals is to continue building stronger partnerships with area Catholic elementary schools - especially in relation to the subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.  “This also applies to Catholic and public universities in our region, and along with our excellent and dedicated faculty and staff we will continue to make Immaculate High School a leader in curricular innovation, instructional delivery and educational excellence for our students and their families while providing an outstanding Catholic educational experience that will last a lifetime," he said.

“I am excited and honored to have been selected as the new Principal of Immaculate High School, and look forward to getting to know the students, parents, faculty and staff that comprise the wonderful IHS family,” Dr. Higgins said. “Immaculate High School has a proud legacy of academic excellence, spiritual and moral development and recognition of the necessity of service to others in our communities. These strong tenets have served Immaculate High School students and their families well for the past 55 years, and will continue to do so now and in the future,” he added.  

Dr. Higgins, Ed.D. is a Professionally Certified Connecticut Public Educator with endorsements in Social Studies and Grades Pre-K - 12 School Administration. From 1991 to 2011, Dr. Higgins taught college preparatory, advanced and AP Social Studies courses at Ridgefield High School, and from 2011-2013 served as the Dean of Students and Director of Student Activities at Joel Barlow High School in Redding.  Dr. Higgins holds a B.S. in Justice and Law Administration, an M.A. in History and International Relations, as well as an Ed.D. in Instructional Leadership and Education Psychology from Western Connecticut State University in addition to a professional teacher certification from Sacred Heart University including State administrative licensure. As Principal of St. Jude School in Monroe, Dr. Higgins was responsible for administrative operations that included serving as a teaching principal and instructional leader for his colleagues.

“We are extremely grateful to have a qualified, experienced and devoted individual joining us at Immaculate. Dr. Higgins is a visionary leader with an exceptional passion to provide every student an opportunity to become responsible moral leaders of the next generation,” said Mary R. Maloney, President of Immaculate High School.  “On behalf of the entire school community, I offer my thanks to all those who served on the principal search committee this past year.  I know that their efforts have afforded Immaculate students a successful future.”

Dr. Higgins and his wife Tammy, a Cardiac Nurse Practitioner at Danbury Hospital, have resided in Bethel for 26 years and are parishioners of St. Mary Church. They have two grown children, Patrick and Katlyn. For the past 27 years Dr. Higgins has been a 3rd Degree member of the Knights of Columbus, Pavia Council # 48.

“Dr. Higgins has demonstrated success as a teacher and leader at the high school and elementary school levels in both the public and private sector. Most importantly, he is a man of tremendous faith. I believe that he will work collaboratively with the rest of the leadership team to further the mission, vision and future of Immaculate High School,” said Dr. Steven Cheeseman, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Bridgeport.

Immaculate High School is a private, non-profit Catholic college-preparatory institution serving students from 28 communities in Connecticut and New York. Founded in 1962, Immaculate High School also allows students to focus on their spiritual development, personal moral commitments and service to others.  Located in Danbury, CT, Immaculate High School is part of the Diocese of Bridgeport’s parochial school system.
