Lowell Chamber Orchestra’s December performance contemplates immigration, history

LOWELL, Mass. -- Nearly forty percent of Americans can trace at least one ancestor to Ellis Island, and the Lowell Chamber Orchestra will present a work based on three actual stories of the famous islands that encompass the immigrant experience.

Composer Gabriele Vanoni spent half year researching for his work "Island of Peoples," a multimedia composition based around three true stories from Ellis Island that are just as relevant today as they were when they happened, since they deal with struggle, pain and sadness, but also joy, love, friendship, and faith.

"My family has a connexion with Ellis Island because in the museum, you can look up for passengers," says Vanoni, "And I found the record. I found the ship where they came. When I got to passengers' search looking for my family's history, I found out about the Ellis Island Oral Histories.I found this amazing collection of stories of people who basically just left their country without knowing what to expect."

These stories are told and unfold intertwined around a few common traits: the longing for home, the perils of traveling for days, and the cultural, social and human uncertainties of the new world, through the fabric of musical mastery that only Vanoni can delivery.

When asked to describe his work "Island of Peoples," Vanoni says "What you're gonna hear is basically three snapshots. This is a multimedia work in which you will have electronic music interludes with some media projection, and you're gonna have three works for ensemble, which are snapshots of three stories."

While the ensemble is very small - flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, and percussion - Vanoni's orchestration makes it a perfect vessel to express the many feelings imbued in the stories. Soprano Mary Mackenzie and tenor Kartik Ayysola are the vocalists who bring to life the three stories, sometimes singing, sometimes speaking.

Vanoni decided on three particular stories because "it was important to give a little bit of a glimpse of the experience to the listener. The scenes do follow pretty much like a trip. So the first section talks about leaving the country. Then the interviews and the middle section talks about being on Ellis Island. And the end of it is just the legacy, if you wish: the history and the future if you wish."

Like all Lowell Chamber Orchestra concerts, the performance is free and open to the public, and will take place on: Saturday, December 17, 2022, 7:30 p.m., at Middlesex Community College's Richard and Nancy Donahue Academic Arts Center (240 Central Street, Lowell, MA).

This concert is part of Middlesex Community College's "A World of Music Concert Series."

Grief Opens Path to Reconnection, Resilience in New Online Retreat Nov. 5-6

WEAVERVILLE, N.C. -- Grief, like the seasons, is part of the normal cycle of life, yet each person experiences it differently. Join grief guides Melody LeBaron and Dean Spillane-Walker for "Heart Broken Open: Grief as a Sacred Path to Reconnection and Resilience," a new online retreat for the bereaved, on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 5-6, 2022. The event is presented by: Transforming Space, Self, and Loss; and by Living Resilience.

The event is designed to transform the experience of grief for those experiencing any significant loss. These include those experiencing:

* the loss of a relationship, family member, pet, home or job

* struggles with trauma, a diagnosis, or an illness

* grief for the devastation of the planet and its peoples

* difficulty coping with stuckness, sadness, or loneliness

Learn more: https://livingresilience.net/griefretreat/

Caregivers such as family members, therapists, coaches, health and wellness practitioners may also benefit from the ritual practices of grief within a community setting.

"Our ancestors accepted grief as a normal part of life," says LeBaron. "They knew that grief buried alive kills the mind, the body, the soul."

LeBaron is the author of "Transforming Death: Creating Sacred Space for the Dying" (ISBN: 978-1733477123) a guide for the dying and their caregivers, based on her experience as a midwife for the deaths of 12 of her closest loved ones including her 17-year old son, mother, and sister.

"So, when one person grieved, the tribe gathered and formed 'a community of mourners,'" she says. "In other words, when a loss happened to one member of the tribe, it was processed and grieved-by the entire tribe."

Walker says that within a community, grief can be transformed. "Grief is feral," he says. "It does not come on demand. But grief can be evoked-through stories, writing, movement, and ritual."

Walker is author of "The Impossible Conversation: Choosing Reconnection and Resilience at the End of Business as Usual" (ISBN: 978-0692900017). He helps create consciousness within communities in ways that encourage the maturation of deep inner resources, as its members bravely face an unimaginable future.

"Grief can be welcomed, integrated, and transformed within the sacred space formed by an intentional community," Walker says.

But, they say, some losses can't be managed alone. People may need a community of grievers in order to complete the grief cycle.

"When grief is fully processed and integrated, it transforms into a life-force, a fuel that revitalizes and propels us into reconnection and resilience, as individuals, families, and communities," says Walker.

But when grief is ignored, tamped down, buried alive, vitality may be buried with it.

"We live in a time when we are experiencing devastating personal-and planetary-loss. It is no longer advisable to grieve privately, to force ourselves to 'get over it,'" says LeBaron.

Now is the time for a conscious, courageous community grieving. The retreat will include:

* Powerful writing practice to assist in opening our stories of loss

* Deepening our trust in our emotional and body wisdom

* Sharing our stories of loss in a confidential container, to the extent you want that

* An avenue to express our grief over world events

* Learning practices and healing tools to use after the retreat

* Music and Movement that allow us to embody and then release emotions

To learn more about "Heart Broken Open: Grief as a Sacred Path to Reconnection and Resilience," or to sign up to attend on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., and on Sunday, Nov. 6, from noon to 5 p.m., visit: https://livingresilience.net/griefretreat/.
