LIFE
Sunday March 8, 2015
3:00 PM until 5:00 PM

We invite you to join the Charles River Wind Ensemble for LIFE a concert inspired by our collective journey from womb to grave. The groups second performance of the season, led by new music director Corey Seapy, will feature a diverse and colorful array of music:

The first half of the program is framed by two folk-inspired works, Eugene Bozzas Childrens Overture and Percy Graingers Childrens March, both of which evoke the joy-filled tunes we learn in our youth. O Magnum Mysterium, by Morten Lauridsen, is a beautiful transcription of a choral work that ponders the mystery of birth. Cindy McTee, one of Americas most imaginative modern composers, wrote Timepiece at the outset of the new millennium. It is an intricate and invigorating musical exploration of time.

The three works on the second half of the program align with the lifes latter portion. The Promise of Living, from Aaron Coplands only full opera The Tender Land, celebrates hard work, harvest, helpfulness, hope, and love. Trauermusik (Funeral Music) by Richard Wagner is actually his arrangement of music from Carl Maria von Webers opera Euryanthe. Wagner wrote this heartfelt tribute in 1844 for the torch-lit procession of Webers remains to his final resting place in Germany. The concert concludes with a recent work by Carter Pann entitled The Three Embraces.

Come enjoy this afternoon of exciting and meaningful live music!

IBM Cognos 10.2.1 Framework Manager Fundamentals and Advanced - Lexington, MA *Guaranteed to Run*

IBM Cognos BI Framework Manager Fundamentals

Millions of dollars are wasted every year on Business Intelligence implementations that fail to provide a clear strategic architecture to presenting corporate information for end user consumption. If the data is organized in a concise, consistent manner, and performs well, the project will be well received and accepted around the organization. In order to achieve this, a solid understanding of the IBM Cognos Framework Manager tool is necessary.

Storytelling has received a lot of press, as a marketing strategy and an effective way to engage audiences on social media. Businesses are getting their stories out there stories about their origins, their values, their customers. So why are most nonprofits so bad at storytelling?

In this increasingly competitive landscape for donors attention and support, getting people to notice and to hear your message is possible. Digital and visual storytelling tactics such as photos, videos and info-graphics can help your nonprofit cut through the clutter.

This seminar details how nonprofits can tell their stories using digital tools like social media and blogs. Participants will learn that storytelling is vital to nonprofit marketing and fundraising, and how to use their organizations stories to grow support.

Julia Campbell spent 10 years as a development director and marketing coordinator. A returned Peace Corps Volunteer and a social media marketing specialist, Julia helps nonprofits connect with donors by effectively harnessing the power and potential of online marketing and social media tools.

The seminar is Tuesday, March 10th at Cary Library in Lexington, 1:30-3:30. Register at www.nonprofitnet.us. For information, contact Mimi Ballard, 781-861-3711.

Lexington Arts and Crafts Painters Guild presents:
Nella Lush, Abstract in Oil and Wax Demonstration
Sunday, March 22 2:00 - 4:00pm

Nellas approach to a demo is simple, it sums up to "Art as an extension of yourself", how to follow your emotions to free up from constraints placed by yourself or others. I use oil and cold wax and some marble powder. I can paint whatever the group would like but for the most part I like to show my process and it lends more towards the abstract

Metropolitan Wind Symphony Band Concert: Enduring the Winter
Sunday March 1, 2015
3:00 PM until 5:00 PM

The Metropolitan Wind Symphony will continue their 44th season with their Winter Band Concert on Sunday, March 1, 2015 at 3:00 pm, at the National Heritage Museum, 33 Marrett Road, Lexington, MA, a new location for us this season while Cary Hall in Lexington is being renovated. MWS Music director Lewis J. Buckley will conduct the program. Featured will be Fairest of the Fair by John Philip Sousa, Sinfonietta by Ingolf Dahl, the New England premier of Concerto for Trombone by James Beckel with trombone soloist Mark Weaver, Bright-Colored Dances by Lewis Buckley, Endurance by Timothy Mahr, and Irish Suite by Leroy Anderson. Mr. Buckley will deliver a pre-concert lecture at 2:30 pm.

Ingolf Dahls landmark Sinfonietta is one of the finest works ever written for the wind band. It is one of Conductor Lewis Buckleys favorite pieces, dating back to his student days in the Eastman Wind Ensemble. Bright Colored Dances, Buckley's own composition which he first performed with MWS in his audition concert in 2006, reflects the motion and color he often senses when composing. Jim Beckels new Concerto is a piece MWS helped commission, and we welcome longtime Coast Guard Band Principal Trombonist Mark Weaver as our soloist. Endurance, the theme piece of this program, observes the 100th anniversary of the famous Ernest Shackleton Antarctica voyages of 1914-16. Endurance, both the name of Shackletons ship and an apt descriptor of his incredible experience, is a truly amazing story of the indomitable human spirit."

Trombonist Mark E. Weaver received his formal music education at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, Bloomington, Indiana, and at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California. Weaver was principal trombonist of the United States Coast Guard Band from 1980 until his retirement in 2009 after almost 29 years of performing across the nation, and around the world. Currently Weaver is a member of the Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra, and in recent years has performed with the Rhode Island Philharmonic, Hartford Symphony, the Waterbury Symphony and the Bridgeport Symphony, the Connecticut Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra, the Chorus of Westerly, Connecticut Lyric Opera, and the Salt Marsh Opera Company. Weaver also performs frequently with the New Haven Symphony, and New York's Canterbury Choral Society.

Lewis Buckley earned his undergraduate degree from the Eastman School of Music and his Masters degree from Connecticut College. In 1975, he became the Coast Guard Bands fifth director at age 27 and held that post for 29 years. He continues to compose, arrange, and publish music. He also remains an active trumpet soloist, frequently combining solo appearances with conducting, often in premiere performances of his own commissioned works. Buckley has a diverse background, having conducted bands, orchestras, and choruses in all styles of music from classical to commercial to jazz.

Tickets are $18 for adults, $14 for seniors, $6 for students, and are free for children under 5. They are available at the door or can be reserved by telephone. Call the MWS Concert Line at (978) 419-1697 to reserve or purchase tickets. Visit the MWS web page at http://www.mws-boston.org for information and directions. Email mws@mws-boston.org with any questions.

Founded by Jerry Gardner in 1971, the Metropolitan Wind Symphony, a concert band, is currently celebrating its 44th anniversary. The MWS comprises over 70 talented woodwind, brass, and percussion instrumentalists who audition for membership and seating. It makes a significant contribution to the cultural life of the Greater Boston community by providing its audiences with high quality concerts and its members with opportunities for musical growth.

This and other concerts by the MWS are funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Saturday March 21, 2015

When most Americans think about what it means to be a citizen, they think of their rightsbut what are citizens obligations, and how does war change those duties? During the First World War, Americans contemplated, debated, and enforced the obligations of citizenship, with legacies that reverberate today. Drawing heavily on the history of New England communities, and looking in particular at military conscription and wartime policies regarding bonds and taxes, this talk by Christopher Capozzola, Associate Professor of History, MIT School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences, explores a crucial moment in Americas history and its lessons a century later.
