Orchestra 914 is pleased to present a Flute, Clarinet and Cello Trio Concert on Sunday, October 17 at  3 pm at St John’s Episcopal Church, 8 Sunnyside Avenue in Pleasantville, NY. 
 
The Trio features Rebecca Quigley on flute, Jarrett Hoffman on clarinet and Zachary May on cello for an afternoon of mixed wind and string trios. Works will include Francois Devienne’s “Trio in Bb,”  “Seclusive Song” by Swedish Cellist Svante Henryson (b. 1963), and Emily Horton’s “Trio” (2019). The program will conclude with Australian composer Harry Sdraulig’s “Serenade” (2019), and a complete performance of American composer Brian Raphael Nabors’ (b. 1991) work “Seven Dances for Flute, Clarinet & Cello. Composer and pianist Brian Nabors’ Seven Dances is a complex piece consisting of seven contrasting miniatures representing various styles of dance and music, including tango, foxtrot and hip-hop.

Brian Raphael Nabors is a composer whose emotionally enriching music presents exciting narratives through its vibrant themes and colorful harmonic language. With an eclectic musical palate and crafty compositional technique, Nabors’ music draws from combinations of Jazz Funk, R&B, and Gospel with a modern flair for contemporary classical music. Nabors grew up in the South, and much of his music deals with new reflections on life, nature and the human condition. 
 
This includes how music plays a role in shaping the perception of a society, and how it can be used as a tool to inspire conversations about prejudice, racism and bigotry.  Nabors earned both a Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degree in Composition at the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music (CCM), and prior to graduate studies he earned a Bachelor of Music Theory & Composition degree from the School of the Arts at Samford University in Birmingham, AL. 
 
Orchestra 914, formerly The Chappaqua Orchestra, seeks to expand the classical music experience for diverse audiences in the Hudson Valley through creative, educational, and community programming with the highest level of artistic integrity.  In 1958, Boris Koutzen created The Chappaqua Orchestra in an effort to bring high quality classical music to Northern Westchester. Over the years, TCO has had many incarnations, from a mix of professions and amateurs, to what is now a fully professional orchestra. 
 
Orchestra 914 is now officially based in Pleasantville, NY, and has recently appointed Russell Ger as its new Musical Director, as part of its goal to widen its geographic scope and to bring an inclusive and unexpected array of live classical music to audiences throughout Westchester, helping to build a community of music lovers of all ages and backgrounds.  Cynthia Peterson, a professional pianist and performer, and long- time resident of the Hudson Valley currently serves as the Artistic Director of the Orchestra 914 Chamber Music Series.

The suggested donation is $30 at the door (accept cash, check, paypal).  Audience members attending Orchestra 914 concerts will be required to show proof of vaccination and wear a face-covering indoors in accordance with current CDC guidelines.

Westchester County Partners with Family Services To Get Kids in Need Back to School Ready https://news.hamlethub.com/pleasantville/charities/4318-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program4318-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program https://news.hamlethub.com/pleasantville/charities/4318-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program4318-westchester-county-partners-with-family-services-of-westchester-for-backpacks-to-school-program

Annual Program fills 1,200 backpacks with new school supplies for low income Westchester County children

Helping local children start the new academic school year ready to learn, Westchester County partnered with Family Services of Westchester to launch the “Backpacks to School” Program for 2019. Each summer, The Sharing Shelf, a program of Family Services of Westchester, runs a county-wide drive between May and August to raise the funds needed to purchase new school supplies for elementary, middle and high school students. The Sharing Shelf is seeking to raise $35,000 to fill at least 1,250 backpacks with new binders, notebooks, folders, crayons, pencils, pens and paper this year.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “When we think back on our ‘first day of school’ memories from childhood, we probably think about our Mom or Dad dropping us of at school with a new book bag, filled with new school supplies for the year. But for many kids living in Westchester County, a backpack filled with colourful notebooks, a lunch box, pencils and pens, is something they can’t afford. A new backpack stuffed with school supplies can make all the difference, and this program helps us to do just that.”

The Sharing Shelf Program Director Deborah Blatt said: “The Sharing Shelf believes that every child deserves to start the school year prepared and ready to learn. Keeping children in school is one of our goals. We are proud to partner with Westchester County to ensure that so many low income children will walk through the school doors next month with a new backpack and new school supplies. We hope each child will have a smile on their face and confidence in their step, putting them on the path to learning and future success."

Businesses and employees who have already pledged their support for the 2019 backpack drive include Regeneron, Schott, SwissRe, Dechert LLP and the Westchester County Department of Corrections union.

In 2018, the Sharing Shelf distributed over 1,450 backpacks and over 35% were requested by Westchester County’s Department of Social Services. Nearly 60,000 Westchester County children live in low-income homes, and 36% qualify for free or reduced price lunch. Meanwhile, the average family spends $122 on school supplies, a sum that can be out of reach for low-income families and those living below the poverty level in Westchester County.

The backpacks will be distributed before Labor Day to children throughout Westchester County. To find out more about how to help or to donate, please contact The Sharing Shelf Program Director,

Deborah Blatt at thesharingshelf@fsw.org or (914) 305-5950. You may also visit http://www.fsw.org/backpacks.

 Urgent need for blood and platelet donations

Donate by Dec. 19 and receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card

The American Red Cross has an urgent need for blood and platelet donors from Pleasantville to give now to ensure blood is available for medical treatments and emergencies during the holiday season.

Blood and platelet donations often decline during the holidays. Regular donors are busy with holiday activities, and travel and severe winter weather may cause blood drive cancellations. Yet donations remain critical for patients like 4-year-old Wyatt Monacelli who is in the midst of intense chemotherapy treatments for leukemia. He has received a number of transfusions since his diagnosis in June and will likely need more. Locations in and around Pleasantville are:

town date time location address
Greenwich 12/1/2018 8 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. First Presbyterian Church 1 West Putnam Ave
Greenwich 12/8/2018 8 a.m. - 1:45 p.m. Greenwich Public Safety Complex/New Greenwich Police Department 11 Bruce Place
Greenwich 12/12/2018 11:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Greenwich Town Hall 101 Field Point Road
Stamford 11/30/2018 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. Bobby Valentine's Sports Academy 4 Largo Drive S
Stamford 12/8/2018 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. Tully Health Center 32 Strawberry Hill Court
Stamford 12/15/2018 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. St Cecilia Catholic Church 1184 Newfield Ave.

“We are fortunate to have had so many donors give the gift of life to our child so far throughout the course of his treatment, and even more so, we are lucky to have had a supply of blood available for him when he needed it,” said Julianna Monacelli, Wyatt’s mother.

Donors are urged to give now to ensure that families like Wyatt’s don’t have to worry about the availability of blood this winter. In thanks for helping meet the urgent need around the holidays, all those who come to donate blood or platelets now through Dec. 19, 2018, will receive a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email. (Restrictions apply; see amazon.com/gc-legal. More information and details are available at RedCrossBlood.org/Together.)

Make an appointment to donate blood or platelets by downloading the free American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Another way to help keep the blood supply strong is to host a Red Cross blood drive this winter. To learn more about hosting a blood drive and to sign up, visit RedCrossBlood.org/HostADrive.

How to donate blood
Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age in most states (16 with parental consent where allowed by state law), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

Blood and platelet donors can save time at their next donation by using RapidPass® to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, before arriving at the blood drive. To get started, follow the instructions at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or use the Blood Donor App.

Enjoy a cold one, Pleasantville! https://news.hamlethub.com/pleasantville/neighbors/4284-enjoy-a-cold-one-pleasantville-15381731714284-enjoy-a-cold-one-pleasantville-1538173171 https://news.hamlethub.com/pleasantville/neighbors/4284-enjoy-a-cold-one-pleasantville-15381731714284-enjoy-a-cold-one-pleasantville-1538173171

TGIF and raise your glass because today, Friday, September 28, is National Drink A Beer Day!

A recent report by 247WallStreet indicates that beer drinking among Connecticut residents has dwindled as of late. Come on Connecticut! We’re ranked #49 of #50 for beer drinking, consuming 20.7 gallons of beer annually. That might seem like a lot, but not in comparison to New Hampshire which placed first by consuming 40.6 gallons of beer annually!

In the past decade, local breweries have been popping up all over Connecticut and around Pleasantville. The State of Connecticut coined the phrase  “The Connecticut Beer Trail” to highlight the many beer destinations. According to Connecticut Brewers Guild, promoters of Connecticut breweries, as of September 2018, there are 80 operational breweries (with many more on the horizon).

Here is a list of local breweries near Pleasantville that you can check out:

Name Location Phone Website
Half Full Brewery 43 Homestead Ave, Stamford, CT 06902-7204 (203) 274-8788 www.halffullbrewery.com
Lock City Brewing 54 Research Dr, Stamford, CT 06906-1428 (203) 313-6454 www.lockcitybrewing.com

Enjoy a cold one while taking in the magnificent colors of fall in New England. Of course, safety first - before hitting the trail (beer trail) name a designated driver.
