Community in Concert Event - A Harmonious Success!
The NCA held its Community in Concert event on Sunday, November 7. The event's presentation was a musical, vocal, and artist collaboration with members from many of the NCA's art and cultural organizations. The presentations demonstrated the breadth of talent in the Newton community.
Special guest violinist, Sheila Fiekowsky with conductor Ron Knudsen and members from the New Phil, Newton Symphony, Suzuki School of Newton faculty and Boston Baroque performed Telemann's Concerto in a minor. Chuck Hornberger conducted the Newton Choral Society and friends to rousing renditions of selections from Porgy and Bess along with other musical numbers. Meri Jenkins, Program Director of the Massachusetts Cult ural Council, talked about the importance of arts and culture to the economy. "Ellen Jackson," from the Jackson Homestead was kind enough to take time from her busy schedule to greet attendees. Whole Foods Market and Panera Bread contributed food for the event.
It was an inspiring evening and a great way to communicate about the NCA and its role in the Newton community.
