Newton Choral Society Presents Blooming in Boston
Blooming in Boston Church of the Holy Name 1689 Centre Street West Roxbury, MA 02132 We salute Boston's preeminence as a flourishing music center with a program devoted to local composers. Central works include Garden Party, by Daniel Pinkham and Narcissus, by James Woodman. Garden Party, a comic opera, offers a decidedly whimsical and irreverent take on Adam and Eve's banishment from the Garden of Eden. Narcissus, commissioned by the Newton Choral Society in 1995, tells the ancient Greek myth of the beautiful youth who becomes spellbound by his own reflection. Also on the program are works by Carson Cooman set to poems by beloved writers: Eros, by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and The Choir Invisible, by George Eliot. Susan Consoli, soprano; Tom Jones, baritone; Mark Feldhusen, pianist

Cost: 0 - 35 USD (Sat, 16 May 2015 20 )
Souper Bowl 7
On Sunday February 8th, from 4-8PM at the Haley House Bakery Caf in Roxbury's Dudley Square, a dozen chefs will serve soups made from locally sourced ingredients as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End. Upon entering, attendees will select a handcrafted ceramic bowl, courtesy of MassArt's Clay for Change program. They will then make their way from station to station, sampling the soups produced with locally sourced ingredients. In sampling a variety of these soups, people realize that with a little creativity, folks can eat locally all year round. At the end of the event, the attendees are invited to take their bowls home with them. Six years ago, the Boston Localvores, an informal group interested in supporting the local food movement, approached the Haley House Bakery Caf with the concept of a Souper Bowl, a tasting event spotlighting locally sourced soups. Four years ago, MassArt's Clay for Change program proposed a newly reinvented Souper Bowl, as a fundraiser for Haley House's Soup Kitchen in the South End. Diverse soups featured in past Souper Bowls have included: Butternut Squash and Apple Soup/Cream of Carrot Soup/French Onion Soup/Kambocha Mash Soup/Kale Soup/Pea Tendril Soup/Pork & Bean Soup/Root Vegetable Lentil Soup/Scotch Broth/Seafood Chowder/Sweet & Spicy Parsnip Soup Ingredients for the Souper Bowl are sourced from a selection of local farms and purveyors. Iggy's Breads generously donates bread for this occasion. Situated in the South End neighborhood of Boston, Haley House's soup kitchen is intent on building community and relationships at six breakfasts for homeless men and three lunches for neighborhood elders every week. It serves home-cooked, nutritious meals as a way to create a space of refuge from the violence and anonymity of the streets. There are no metal detectors or law enforcement officers present. The personalist focus of the Meals Programs offers a broader perspective on the systems that create hunger and poverty, while working to create alternatives to those systems. The funds raised in Souper Bowl 7 will provide one month of food to be served in the soup kitchen. Clay for Change is a student activity group at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and "Empty Bowls" is one of its primary initiatives. Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger. The basic premise is simple: handcrafted ceramic bowls are created, guests are invited to enjoy soup within the bowl and for a cash donation they keep the bowl as a reminder of all the empty bowls in the world. The money raised is donated to an organization working to end hunger and food insecurity - in this case, Haley House. Clay for Change works to build strong connections between MassArt and the wider community through the arts and ceramics in particular.
