Sisters in Song present "A Beautiful Pair3" to benefit Ellie Fund

Let me introduce to you Sisters in Song, group of beautiful and very gifted musicians I am proud to now call my Sisters.  With my longtime friend Jeff Pietrantoni, we formed this new group in 2011 and were very proud to produce our FIRST musical production in September/October 2011 called A BEAUTIFUL PAIR.  All proceeds from this wonderful musical revue were donated to Ellie Fund, a local organization supporting Massachusetts breast cancer patients and their families (  Read more about our concert by clicking on the following link.  (

Jeff has been a long time devotee of musical theatre and I, a true fan of all types of music.  Jeff had been brainstorming for a few years about getting a group together in order to give back to our communities through music which, in his words, “heals the soul”.  I was thrilled when he asked me to chair this concept alongside him and even prouder that the group wanted to continue its efforts in 2012 and beyond.  Unfortunately, my Breast Cancer diagnosis in 2012 prevented me from doing a show and so the 2012 concert was “postponed”.  Who would have thought that I, after performing to raise money for the Ellie Fund in 2011, would require their support and services just a few months later?  I believe that fate and faith have brought Sisters in Song and the Ellie Fund together. 

“A BEAUTIFUL PAIR2, LOVE HEALS” was performed October 4-6, 2013.  I hope that, if you attended one of the shows last year, you take me up on my challenge to come to one of the 2014 WITH A FRIEND. 

I hope to see many of you at one of the performances and, if you’re not local or cannot make any of the shows, please consider making a donation to this worthy cause.  Checks can be made out to Sisters In Song and mailed to 21 Garden Lane, Wakefield, MA  01880!  To make a donation online, go to, and click DONATE TODAY.  There is a “special option” section where you can choose SISTERS IN SONG.

When: Oct 5, 2014 4 PM to Oct 5, 2014 6 PMin Lynn, Massachusetts (Sun, 05 Oct 2014 16 )

Aron, Nurit and Sedat grew up in Germany, but here they don't feel at home there. They are caught between fatherland and mother love, friendship and betrayal, past and future generations, struggling for where they belong. They appear funny and cool, as if in a good mood, until the very thin ice beneath breaks...

1:00pm Bassoon masterclass with Richard Svoboda in Pierce Hall

2:30pm "Circular Breathing Demystified" presentation by Barbara LaFitte in Pierce Hall
         A discussion/demonstration on circular breathing, with the intent to teach the participants the basics of this useful technique.  The oboe developed from the shawm and crumhorn, the latter of which was an instrument that required circular breathing in  order to maintain pitch, similar to the bagpipe.  If we accept circular breathing as a common technique during the transition to the oboe, the baroque repertoire no longer seems impossible in terms of breath control.  Circular breathing gives us the freedom to achieve long phrases with ease.

Cow Power Tour

Got Cow Power?

When it comes to clean energy, most people know solar and wind. But what’s cow power? Here’s your chance to find out! On October 5th Mass Energy, along with allies Mass Audubon and Mothers Out Front, will host a free family-friendly event at the Jordan Family Dairy Farm in Rutland. 

This event will showcase the farm's anaerobic digester. The digester uses cow manure, local food scraps and other agricultural waste to produce methane gas, which is then converted into electricity or “cow power.” The tour, guided by a Jordan Farm employee, takes guests through the cow barn, digester, and electric generator. Read more about the facility here!

In addition to a guided tour of the farm’s cow power facility, the event includes a hayride, apple cider, doughnuts and pumpkin decorating!

Letters and Photographs from the Battle Country: Massachusetts Women in the First World War

To commemorate the centennial of the outbreak of World War I, the MHS has organized the exhibition Letters and Photographs from the Battle Country: Massachusetts Women in the First World War focusing on two of the hundreds of women from the Commonwealth who went to France as members of the U.S. armed forces, the Red Cross, and other war relief organizations.

From the Society’s extraordinary collection of women’s recollections, this exhibition features photographs, letters, diaries, and memorabilia related to Margaret Hall and Eleanor (Nora) Saltonstall, Red Cross volunteers in France. The exhibition will highlight Hall’s large-format photographs of the battlefront on loan from the Cohasset Historical Society. Both women were keen observers of the climactic months of the war and depicted what they witnessed in vivid detail.
