Today world leaders and activists, like environmental activist Greta Thunberg, are meeting for the #COP26 climate summit to discuss our warming planet; but pledges without action will not be enough to avoid this continuing crisis. Countries around the world, including the United States, have failed to enact the proper climate change legislation needed to cut domestic carbon emissions.

Our hope relies on you, our community, and our city’s determination to fight the inaction of our elected leaders and spread the truth that we all must work together to save Mother Earth!

Take action with Greta, other youth activists around the world, and the whole team at Avaaz . Add your name to the Emergency Appeal for Climate Action petition!

Stars from Only Heaven

Following in the footsteps of Marian Anderson, here is a recording of "Stars" sung by Theresa Hamm-Smith from the Encompass premiere production of the opera, Only Heaven. Music by Ricky Ian Gordon.

"Stars" by Langston Hughes

O, sweep of stars over Harlem streets,
O, little breath of oblivion that is night.
A city building
To a mother's song.
A city dreaming
To a lullaby.
Reach up your hand, dark boy, and take a star.
Out of the little breath of oblivion
That is night,
Take just
One star.

I noticed this was a community of opera fans, and wanted to share with you all another opportunity to enjoy classical singing from the comfort and safety of your very own home! I recently came across the Giulio Gari Foundation’s Official page, where they host their ‘Salon Series’. This series aims to spotlight young international classical singers by offering audiences an inside look into how they discovered and pursued their passion for opera. This foundation supports and fosters the growth of operatic singers covering all ranges and backgrounds. Last week’s episode featured Metropolitan Opera’s very own Errin Duane Brooks. Brooks is a promising young tenor who most recently made his debut in their award-winning performance of ‘Porgy and Bess’. I loved listening to him speak about his inspirations, and watching the performances that lead to a breakthrough in his career. The episodes are free to all viewers, and can be easily accessed through the Giulio Gari Foundation Official page, or through their official site at giuliogari.org ! I think this is a great opportunity to bring the opera community back together to tune into some of their favorite artists. I highly recommend checking them out!
An extraordinary opera company that champions new operas. Even now.

Hi Singers of NYC! Salthaus, Modern salt rooms, just opened on the UES. Halotherapy is known to reduce stress, anxiety, enhance athletic performance, and provide a better night's sleep. This could be an excellent way to provide self care to your auditioning and performing routine. An extra bonus - dry salt therapy is beneficial for vocal production, as it is anti-inflammatory and clears out the sinuses. We are currently offering a Buy One, Get One on the Haus! Come visit us! More info: www.salthausny.com
This promises to be a fun evening. If you're in the city and looking for a little jazz with the artistry of Marilyn Maye in a beautiful, intimate setting, buy your tickets now. Hope to see you there!!!
