About Dorchester
map
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

Tommy Emmanuel
Give a listen to “Old Photographs,” the closing track on Tommy Emmanuel’s It’s Never Too Late, and you’ll hear the distinctive squeak of finger noise as he runs his hands across the frets of his Maton Signature TE guitar. It’s an imperfection in the performance that players typically try to eliminate in practice, and in the hands of a less-secure musician, that sound could easily be edited from the recording with Pro Tools recording technology. But in their own way, those imperfections are perfect. For all of the masterful technique and flashy ability that’s brought Emmanuel recognition among the world’s greatest guitarists, that finger noise lets the audience know he is one of them. That click conveys warmth and humanity. And it demonstrates an honesty in the sound. It’s that integrity that makes It’s Never Too Late a guitar album that’s believable to both studied guitarists and everyday music fans. “It’s all about the feeling of the music,” Emmanuel says. “And it has to make me feel something. I’m still playing for myself, you know, because I figure if I please me, then I’m pretty sure I’m gonna please you. And that’s not an arrogant statement, it’s just quality control.” Quality is laced throughout It’s Never Too Late, the first regular studio album featuring Emmanuel completely solo without guests since 2000. A friend and follower of the late Chet Atkins – who christened Emmanuel a Certified Guitar Player, making him one of only five musicians to receive the C.G.P. distinction from the master – Emmanuel easily skates between musical styles, playing with blues in “One Mint Julep,” infusing Spanish tradition in “El Vaquero” and exploring folk in “The Duke.”

Artist Talk: Irish Artist, Róisín O' Farrell
About the Artist Irish artist, Róisín O’Farrell was born to a family of talented artists. Her exposure to art from an early age offered her a visual apprenticeship to both classical and contemporary art. Róisín paints bright, vibrantly colorful paintings in textured, buttery oils with a contemporary finish. Her work is influenced by a sense of home, and feature warm, light filled period interiors, tumbled families of rain boots, vintage cutlery and quirky china teacups. First discovered in early 2009, Róisín work is in high demand in established galleries across Ireland, the UK and Europe. “how I paint is as important to me as what I paint. Certainly light, colour and texture are critical elements. Alternating between pallet knife and brush allows me to create rich textures, use lots of juicy paint and suggest rather than describe. I'm affected by bold jewel colours and treat myself to them as I work, like sweeties from a box.”

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts: Delivering Excellence to Their Associates
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts is a community-focused, tax-paying, not-for-profit health plan recognized as one of the nation’s best for member satisfaction and quality. With their upcoming lease renewal at the Landmark Center pending, BCBSMA was ready to consider moving to a new headquarters that would acknowledge changes in the workplace, and their work force, that have occurred in the last few decades. For the project, the organization developed a set of Guiding Principles that promoted Collaboration, Innovation, Health & Wellness and Sustainability. BCBSMA evaluated a number of sites, both within Boston and the suburbs. The decision to relocate to 101 Huntington Avenue in the Prudential Center complex was due to its proximity to public transportation, and the opportunity to design a modern, light filled efficient work space. Join us to hear how the members of the BCBSMA Real Estate incorporated these Guiding Principles into their new Headquarters and delivered a best-in-class workplace to their associates.  Panel Members: Don DiPanfilo, Vice President, Corporate Real Estate and Administrative Services at BCBSMA Larry Healey, Director, Real Estate Strategy and Planning Jay Rivera, Director, Real Estate & Design Cancellation Policy: If you won't be able to make the event, please cancel your registration no less than 48 hours prior to the event to receive a refund and/or avoid a no show fee.

Commonwealth Chorale 2015-2016 Season Ticket Subscription
Newton Choral Society is now the Commonwealth Chorale! DEADLINE FOR PURCHASING SUBSCRIPTIONS IS November 1, 2015! TICKETS WILL BE MAILED TO YOU. SEE all three CONCERT DESCRIPTIONS BELOW. Location for all concerts: Church of the Holy Name 1689 Centre Street West Roxbury, MA 02132 EXILE & MIRACLES Israel in Egypt - George Fredric Handel Saturday, Nov 21 2015 - 8:00pm We launch our debut season as Commonwealth Chorale with Handel's monumental "Israel in Egypt". Beloved by audiences worldwide for the dazzling breadth and variety of its choral movements, this powerful work contains some of Handel's most vivid writing. Through text painting and the masterful interplay of orchestra and chorus, Israel in Egypt brings us frogs and flies, hailstones and fire, not to mention a memorable horse and rider. Few choral works can match the sweep of this 18th century masterpiece. With drama and stillness, despair and triumph, Israel in Egypt has it all. Soloists: Dana Lynne Varga | soprano Vera Savage | mezzo-soprano Matthew Anderson | tenor Bret Aarden | baritone HISTORY & NATURE The Revelations of Divine Love - Carson Cooman Sunday, Mar. 13, 2016 - 3:00pm Performed only twice in Boston, "The Revelations of Divine Love (Metaphors from Sea and Sky)" has delighted audiences across the country and beyond since its premiere in 2009. Based largely on the texts of Julian of Norwich, a 14th c. English female mystic, it evokes a landscape of sea and sky. Filled with atmosphere and color, this remarkable oratorio creates a strong sense of mood and place specifically Nantucket, which provided the composer's inspiration for this large-scale work with orchestra. LOVE & DEVOTION Dharma Chant - Richard St. Clair Saturday, May 21, 2016 8:00pm We conclude our season with a world premiere by Boston-area composer Richard St. Clair. Written and revised over a 20-year period, "Dharma Chant: A Buddhist Oratorio in Three Parts" tells the story of a deeply personal search for enlightenment. Based on spiritual texts, including the Buddha's celebrated teachings on lovingkindness, this moving work is both inspiring and uplifting. Weaving vocal lines of counterpoint and canon in a rich tapestry of four-part a cappella, this is an exciting new addition to the choral repertoire and a concert not to be missed.

Introduction to Chainmaille: OCTOBER
Description: Making chain by hand is an age-old craft adaptable to endless modern variations. The interlocking ring patterns of chainmaille can be used for everything from delicate jewelry to sculpture to armor, yet the basic tools and materials are simple and portable. In this class, you'll learn the techniques and tricks for creating and finishing high-quality chains while starting two bracelets in the classic Byzantine and European 4-1 weaves, plus learning about some of the countless variations possible. Instruction on selecting the right ring sizes and materials will provide a foundation for planning your own projects. Additional weaves, such as Persian, spiral, or Japanese-style chainmaille, may be covered as time allows. Expected Outcomes: Students will leave with two started bracelets in basic chainmaille weaves (Byzantine and European 4-1), as well as additional starters in other weaves as time allows. They will also gain an understanding of aspect ratio and cutting processes to select ring sizes, pros/cons of various metals, and finishing and tumbling of chainmaille. Prerequisites: No experience required! Students must be at least 18 years old. Materials Provided: For a $25 materials fee payable to the instructor during class, students will be provided with a basic kit including two pairs of chainmaille-ready pliers and plenty of rings for two bracelets. Extra kits in other colors and metals will be available for $8-15 each. What to Bring: Students should bring their $25 materials fee in cash, card, or check payable to the instructor. Students may also bring their own jewelry pliers, plus any clasps, beads or findings they would like to use, and a notebook to take notes (there will also be handouts). Instructor Biography: Karen Burke sold her first pieces of jewelry at age seven, took a two-decade detour for higher education and the corporate world, and then rediscovered metal. Self-taught for years, and recently a graduate of the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts, she now works and teaches out of the jewelry studio at Artisan's Asylum, with a particular focus on chains, repairs, unusual metals, and casting. Event Time: This one-day workshop will run Saturday, October 3, 1-4pm. REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form. CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.

Home Free - Don't It Feel Good
When country vocal band Home Free was crowned champion of NBC’s The Sing-Off, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota… rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity. They have become known for their high-energy performances, peppered with quick-witted humor that meshes Nashville standards with pop hits dipped in country flavor. Since their Sing-Off win, Home Free has released two albums (Crazy Life and Full Of Cheer), selling more than 150,000 copies; they’ve embarked on two major national tours, selling more than 100,000 tickets in North America; they’ve released more than 20 music videos, amassing more than 35-million YouTube views. They continue to build a national audience as they bring their Don’t It Feel Good Tour to town on the in support of their third major release on Columbia Records out in Fall 2015.

Brave the Caves: An Underground Cheese Lesson - December 2015
The chilly stone caves beneath our Cambridge store hold hundreds of pounds of cheese, from 80-pound wheels of Comté to delicate-rinded blues to small logs of Belgian goat’s milk cheese destined for our in-house aging program. Go spelunking with our expert cheesemongers and explore the science and secrets that are hidden in our caves. You’ll head underground with each to view and discuss the crucial role these temperature- and humidity-controlled rooms play in cheese aging, storage, and maintenance, and complete the lesson by tasting a few examples of what you’ve learned. Please be prepared for cave-like conditions by wearing a sweater or light jacket and shoes that may become damp.
