Historic Episcopal men and boys choir keeps welcoming tradition alive…

Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI December 14, 2017 at 3:57 pm I think it is wonderful for our young boys and teens to have someplace they can feel safe and be themselves, This is much better than trying to be like the Rap, Hip Hop stars. This teaches them responsibility and self worth. I am a woman who love to sing also, if that is your passion then do something about it, From my Daughters of the King. I am one I cannot do everything but I can do some things, Lord show me what you would have me do. Let us continue to love and spread it over all the hate that is going on.

The men and boys sing every Sunday. When do the girls sing? Are they also paid? Women like me, that is adult women with talent who love to sing, are forced to be silent or change churches. If this church claims “inclusiveness,” they are excluding a large segment of the population. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Music director Claudia Dumschat plays the piano and conducts after-school rehearsal for several boys from the Choir of Men and Boys at Church of the Transfiguration in New York. The professional choir is one of the oldest of its kind in the Episcopal Church. Photo: Amy Sowder/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Begun in a private home in 1848, five streets south of its current Manhattan location, the Church of the Transfiguration has welcomed all sorts of people to warm up inside its hallowed, historic doors.It’s lovingly called “The Little Church Around the Corner” because when the church arranged a funeral for an actor in 1870, judgmental people would whisper that there was a little church around the corner where “they do that sort of thing.” Actors were considered immoral and disreputable. Church legend says that Joseph Jefferson, the actor’s friend who arranged the funeral, replied, “God bless the little church around the corner!”And that sentiment stuck. The church’s mission to welcome all visitors regardless of such things as profession, race, nationality, reputation or status was established from the start. Christmastime can be a reminder to follow the example of inclusiveness and generosity to unexpected visitors, from wealthy foreign kings to desperate young parents.Enter the church’s Choir of Men and Boys, circa 2017. On Dec. 15, the group will perform a fully staged and costumed production of Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors” with a full orchestra. The Italian composer created the Christmas opera specifically for children.Luciano Pantano, 11, plays the starring role of Amahl, a disabled boy who lives with his mother in poverty near Bethlehem in the first century, shortly after Jesus’ birth. The three kings knock on their door in the middle of night asking for a place to rest. Then, tales are swapped, neighbors gathered, gold stolen, generosity shown and miracles revealed.Jodi Karen plays the mother, and Luciano Pantano plays Amahl in the Church of the Transfiguration’s staging of Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” Photo: Church of the TransfigurationPantano is excited to sing Amahl’s part, but he also loves being one among many in the choir team, which includes about a dozen boys and 10 men. He commutes about an hour from Brooklyn to rehearse with the other boys twice a week after school, sing every Sunday, and do special performances.“It kind of opens up a new part of my life,” Pantano told Episcopal News Service after an early December rehearsal. “I have a lot of new friends from many new, different places. I get to talk and socialize.”Several of the Church of the Transfiguration’s choirs will form the Choir of Shepherds for Gian Carlo Menotti’s opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” which will be performed Dec. 15 at the New York City church. Bottom row, left to right: Ben Thomas as King Kaspar, Charles Brown as King Balthazar, Jake Ingbar as King Melcior and Luciano Pantano as Amahl; top row, left to right: Jodi Karem as the mother and Alexis Cordero as the page. Photo: Church of the TransfigurationBuilt-in, unstructured playtime is part of the choir rehearsal program shaped by Claudia Dumschat, the church’s music director since 1999 and the first woman to hold the position since the choir began more than 165 years ago.She divides rehearsals into small groups to fit the students’ varied schedules. Sunday’s choir mass and other performances are when the men and all the boys unite their voices to create one layered, powerful sound.“There’s a naturalness children have when they connect to this music. They don’t over-interpret it,” Dumschat said. “It’s how it was meant to be. It’s thrilling. I used to work with adult [only] choirs, and this has really changed the way I interpret the music.”The church founder, the Rev. George Hendric Houghton, started the Choir of Men and Boys soon after the church formed. With a birthday in the mid-1800s, it’s considered one of the oldest men and boys choirs in the United States.In recent years, the church established the Girls Choir, the Cherub Choir for small children, and the Lumines Girls Choir for teenage girls.Both the boys and girls choirs were invited for residency in the summer of 2018 at the historic St. Albans Cathedral in England, where they will sing in daily evensongs and a Sunday mass. They’ll also tour historic sites in nearby London, enhancing their education musically and spiritually. Sponsorships are available.Emily White, mother to choir member Kalmen “Bugs” Kelley, 11, of Washington Heights in northern Manhattan, said her son is eager to attend his choir rehearsals.“He always swears he doesn’t like classical music, but he loves this,” White said with a laugh. “He sometimes asks me to go over the words and music at home. He responds to the music. This is one of the things where he becomes himself.”Choir isn’t a particularly “cool” extracurricular activity, especially for boys, the director, the rector and parents say. But when these children leave their outside life and enter into the safety of their choir family, they say they feel free to enjoy it regardless.“The music we sing is like a blast from the past, and you really don’t hear this much. I mostly just listen to R&B, rap and pop,” said Ambar Rosario, 16, also of Washington Heights. She likes the unified nature of choir singing. “It’s a way we can perform as a group, not just solo, and there’s a togetherness. To set myself free in this way is amazing.”Three teenagers in the Lumines Girls Choir, Ambar Rosario, 16; Tessoro Estrella, 15; and Leeza Pantano, 13, rehearse at the Church of the Transfiguration with music director Claudia Dumschat. Photo: Amy Sowder/Episcopal News ServiceThe ethereal emotion that beautiful music can evoke has long been rooted in Anglican Church tradition, said the rector, the Rev. John David van Dooren.“The music isn’t just beautiful. It shapes us as Christians,” van Dooren said as he sat with ENS before rehearsal.He looked at Dumschat. “Claudia, she’s created this community and love. Keeping a bunch of boys disciplined is amazing, and she turns them on to a world they’ve never known, musically and spiritually.”It’s also a professional choir because the boys are paid. True, it’s a paltry sum, but they’re responsible for showing up and doing their part with consistency. Jesse Obremski, now 23, joined the church as a 6-year-old and began singing in the Choir of Men and Boys. Then, he graduated from the famed performing arts conservatory The Juilliard School, and today he’s a professional dancer in the Limon Dance Company in Manhattan. He’s choreographing the Menotti’s Christmas opera and mentors the young boys.Jesse Obremski, now 23, joined the Church of the Transfiguration as a 6-year-old and started singing in the Choir of Men and Boys. In the poster, he’s the boy on the far left, second row from the bottom. Obremski’s work with the choir and music director, Claudia Dumschat, played a pivotal role in his acceptance into The Juilliard School for dance. Today, he’s a professional dancer who choreographed the choir’s Christmas opera. Photo: Amy Sowder/Episcopal News Service“She’s taught me about how to approach singing and how to be in it,” Obremski said of Dumschat. “It’s the same with any art form. It’s also about the friendships, the emotional quality, attention to detail and working together.“Those qualities will hopefully help them when they get older.”Rounding up and inviting outsiders has always been the way of the Church of the Transfiguration.Houghton, the first rector, sheltered escaped slaves during the draft riots of the Civil War and maintained a bread line for the unemployed.The male-only nature of the choir stems from its European monastery roots.“Eleventh-century monasteries had four-part choirs. The boys sang soprano and the men alto, tenor and bass,” Dumschat said. “It’s the basis of sacred music in Europe.”Because it wasn’t custom for choirs to include women and girls at the time, composers the likes of Bach, Bernstein, Haydn and Mozart originally meant their music to blend with male voices, young and old.Sascha Haerter, Devin Coleman and Donovan Coleman are part of the Choir of Shepherds in “Amahl and the Night Visitors.” Photo: Church of the TransfigurationAfter rehearsal, Alexander Darling, 9, sprawled on the worn, cushy couch in the playroom that features a ping-pong table, video games, plush toys and books. “It’s pretty great,” said Darling, who lives in Harlem. “It’s a little bit like being free ’cause…”He couldn’t articulate why the choir made him feel free, besides singing in other languages and his love of practicing the songs.But Darling did have a clear message he wanted to tell other kids: “Believe in yourself, whatever you want to do, and never give up.”— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service and a freelance writer and editor based in Brooklyn.

Barbarians flair earns them convincing win in historic clash with the Czech Republic

first_imgWednesday Nov 9, 2016 Barbarians flair earns them convincing win in historic clash with the Czech Republic Following their draw with the Springboks, the Barbarians played the Czech Republic in Prague last night, with the home side keen to impress their passionate fans. While the 32-ranked team fought admirably, the Barbarians gulf in experience and skill showed, as they won 71-0.It was a historic night in icey cold Prague as the two sides met for the first time ever, marking the 90th anniversary of the Czech Rugby Union.The 7000 fans in attendance were in great spirits and got to see some fantastic rugby, as the home team tackled and carried hard, while the talented Barbarians outfit – comprising mainly Super Rugby players – ran them off their feet to score a whopping 11 tries.At halftime it felt like a fairly even contest but the scoreboard said otherwise, as the famous invitation club streaked to a 31-0 lead.Blues winger Melani Nanai was on sensational form, stepping players with ease and picking up a brace of tries in the process, as did Highlanders flyer Matt Faddes, Crusaders playmaker Richie Mo’unga, and Springbok Sevens star Kwagga Smith.Other tries were scored by Toby Smith, Sam Carter and Schalk van der Merwe, with Robert du Preez adding six conversions and Mo’unga slotting two.The Barbarians trip to Prague was about more than just this match, as they held outreach programs for young players and coach Robbie Deans engaged with local coaches throughout the three-day trip.Overall it was a succesful event and despite the scoreline, the home fans loved every moment, soaking up the occassion as both teams did laps of honours before the players all swapped jerseys.The Barbarians now travel to Belfast, where they will take on Fiji on Friday night. If all goes according to plan, Ulster superstar Ruan Pienaar will be in the mix for the Baa-Baas.credit: ctsportFoto: Martin FLOUSEK / www.martinflousek.comADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Barbarians Related Articles 53 WEEKS AGO Four classic matches that demonstrate why… 131 WEEKS AGO Giant Lood de Jager inspires Barbarians with… 132 WEEKS AGO Marvel at the Barbarians’ greatest moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Long-Term Strategy: Kill the Farm Bill

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Long-Term Strategy: Kill the Farm Bill Kill farm bill strategyThe current farm bill extension expires Monday at midnight. North Dakota Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp thinks all of the attention on the nutrition cuts is part of a long-term strategy by some to eliminate the farm bill.“There’s been so much attention to nutrition but the long term strategy here is to kill the farm bill, and if you doubt this I would ask you to go out and read a National Review article, which was highly critical of this effort, saying this isn’t the problem in the farm bill, the farm bill’s the problem, so why are you doing this? I think that is very transparent what they’re doing and we just need to continue to focus on bringing nutrition back together, marrying it back together with the farm program and doing something that provides predictability to our agricultural industry that provides 16 million jobs in this country.”Heitkamp says if the compromise cuts for nutrition are 10-billion dollars – she doubts the farm bill will pass in the House.“The only way it passes the House is if the speaker is willing to back off the Hastert rule, which says that a majority of the votes that come to pass a bill have to come from the Republican side. I think $10 million will be a big lift for the Senate or the House Democrats but it might be possible for the House Democrats depending upon how the bill is fashioned and where they get the $10-billion.”Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King is more optimistic and says the House of Representatives will take up a procedural motion this week to combine the farm-only farm legislation with the just-passed nutrition bill. He calls it a necessary step before the House can conference with the Senate on a new five-year farm bill.“We have to go to the rules committee and get rules to bring a bill to the floor that will allow agriculture and the nutrition components to be negotiated as a package on the table at the conference committee with the Senate. I think they’ll do that. This is all procedural. I think we get that done this week and I expect that sometime in about a week the speaker will name the conferees and we will have already gone to work sorting out the differences.”King says differences between the House and Senate farm bills are relatively minor – with the notable exception of the difference in cuts to nutrition programs. If a new farm bill isn’t signed into law by January 1st USDA will be forced to implement the 1949 permanent farm law. King says that’s not an option.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Sep 25, 2013 SHARE Long-Term Strategy: Kill the Farm Bill Facebook Twitter Previous articleSenate Clears Way for Vote on Spending BillNext articleKraft Ends 23 Years Under the Dome Andy Eubank SHARElast_img read more

Malabo’s only foreign press correspondent held for the past 48 hours

first_imgNews News Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediate release of Rodrigo Angüe Nguema, the Malabo correspondent of Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Radio France Internationale (RFI), who was jailed on 17 July in the capital’s notorious Black Beach prison on a charge of reporting false information.“No date has yet been set for Nguema’s trial and it is incomprehensible that he should be held in the meantime like a common bandit,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are very worried about what will happen to him as Black Beach prison is known for its violence. His imprisonment is typical of the way the authorities hound journalists in this country, which shows no respect for press freedom.”Plain-clothes police escorted a handcuffed Nguema to Black Beach prison at midday on 17 June on the orders of Malabo investigating judge Agustin Chicampo because he was unable to post bail of 20 million CFA francs (30,000 euros). His wife has not been able to see him since he was jailed.Criminal libel charges were brought against Nguema because of a report carried by both AFP and RFI in April in which he said the head of the national airline Ceiba, Gambian citizen Mamadou Jaye, had embezzled 3.5 billion CFA francs (5 million euros) and skipped the country.Jaye immediately denied it to AFP and RFI and Nguema acknowledged that his information was wrong. He said he got it from rumours circulating online and thought he had confirmed it by talking to local sources, above all at Malabo airport.Jaye is suing Nguema for 5 million euros in damages, the amount he was alleged to have embezzled in Nguema’s report. to go further RSF_en Follow the news on Equatorial Guinea November 27, 2020 Find out more June 19, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Malabo’s only foreign press correspondent held for the past 48 hours The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reports May 18, 2020 Find out morecenter_img Equatorial GuineaAfrica Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives Organisation Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Not even coronavirus escapes Equatorial Guinea’s extreme censorship Equatorial GuineaAfrica News June 15, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
