College Community Chorus Thanksgiving concert

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

On Sunday afternoon, November 22, one hundred singers — including Middlebury College students from across the globe and residents from nearly every town in Addison County —  will take their places in the choir pews inside Mead Chapel as the Middlebury College Community Chorus presents its annual Thanksgiving concert. This free, hour-long performance begins at 3:00 p.m. and is open to all.

The program includes a mix of exciting classical choruses alongside newer works. The choir will offer the magnificent first movement of J. S. Bach’s Magnificat; Felix Mendelssohn’s setting of the Thanksgiving chorale Now Thank We All our God; and the final choruses from G. F. Handel’s Messiah with the thrilling counterpoint of voices singing Blessing and Honor… Amen! Works by contemporary American composer-conductors include an exciting setting of a thanksgiving psalm, Jubilate Deo (Make a joyful noise unto God) by David N. Childs, and the beautiful Pilgrims’ Hymn by Stephen Paulus. The choir presents Soulspeak by Z. Randall Stroope, a brand new song with an inspiring text from Alfred Lord Tennyson’s Ulysses. Also slated is Jeffery Ames’s Let Everything that Hath Breath, an uplifting gospel song with its driving rhythm, as well as a beautiful new arrangement by Craig Courtney of Let There Be Peace on Earth.

Conductor Jeff Rehbach notes that the Chorus is privileged this season to perform two works by members of our local communities. Sally Hoyler, well-known in the community as Ripton town clerk and a long-time member of the Chorus, succumbed to cancer in early 2015. In her memory, the chorus will sing a beautiful, flowing song that she composed several years ago that begins with the lyrical text “Ocean, ocean sing to me the silent music of the soul.” The choir will also premiere a brand-new work, A Blessing for Dear Friends, written by Nathan Wallace-Gusakov. Nate grew up in Bristol and now lives with his family in Lincoln and appears frequently playing banjo with music groups in the area. His composition offers hope for peace and love, light to guide the way, and concludes “may you come home to love” – a fitting sentiment for this Thanksgiving program.

Jeff Rehbach is in his sixteenth season as conductor of the College Community Chorus, and Timothy Guiles serves as the ensemble’s remarkable accompanist.

Local Volunteer Opportunities: Tax preparation

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Community Engagement would like to share these two local volunteer needs with faculty and staff members!

Addison Community Action/CVOEO is looking for volunteers to assist in preparing basic Federal and State income taxes for low-income families and individuals. Training is provided through the IRS VITA program through online self- study and testing. Volunteers will assist Debbie with greeting clients, completing intake sheet/review sheet and preparing basic returns. Tax assistance starts February 1 through April 15, Monday-Thursday. Office space is provided. Please call Debbie at 802-388-2285 or e-mail, dgoodri@cvoeo.org.

United Way of Addison County needs volunteers for the upcoming Fast Tax Program offered at the United Way of Addison County! This program allows tax filers with annual income of $60,000 or less to file their own personal tax returns online for free. Volunteers do not offer tax advice, but simply sit with filers while they prepare their own tax returns, answering questions about the website and the general filing process. This is a volunteer position with flexible scheduling, approximately 4 to 8 hours per week, beginning in January 2015 and ending April 15, 2016. Supervised training will be provided on site at the United Way of Addison County. Volunteer positions require studying, testing, and passing the IRS Volunteer Standards of Conduct Training (studying takes one to two hours, and the open book, multiple choice exam usually only takes a few minutes). We also train our volunteers through the IRS Link and Learn online training program. Training typically takes between 10-20 hours and can be completed at home at your own pace. It is an excellent way for you to learn more about filing your own personal income tax return as well as helping to empower others in our community—while saving money!

Interested volunteers should call the United Way of Addison County at 802-388-7189 and ask for Lizzy Reed, Volunteer Center Coordinator. Lizzy can also be contacted via email at lizzy@unitedwayaddisoncounty.org. Thank you!


If anyone needs tax assistance themselves please call the United Way of Addison County or CVOEO to learn more about receiving assistance through these programs.
