Concerto delle Donne—The Consort of Ladies
Revolutionary Italian Vocal Music of the Late Renaissance
For its winter concert, Crescendo presents a solo vocal concert celebrating a unique 16 th century ensemble of professional female musicians. Performances will take place at 6 pm on February 16 at Saint James Place in Great Barrington, MA, and at 4 pm on February 17 at Trinity Church in Lakeville.
In 1580, in Ferrara, Italy, the Concerto delle Donne performed formal concerts for members of the inner circle of the Ferrara court as well as important visitors. The singers were renowned for their technical and artistic virtuosity. Most likely the first of their gender as women performing together, they revolutionized the role of women in professional music. The ensemble’s founding has been called the most important event in secular Italian music in the late 16 th century. As word spread of their work, other similar groups were founded in the powerful courts of the Medici and Orsini.

Finances - What your children need to know
Working in the world of banking and finance, I often get asked by parents how early is too early to teach their children about money. When should they open accounts in their child's name, should they give them access to it, or how soon is too soon to give them a debit card? First and foremost, it's really never too early to teach children about money and finances, the earlier they learn the value of money and how to manage it the better off they will be later in life.

Internship Opportunities at HVRHS Career Experience Program Unpaid Experiential Learning Program (UELP)
The Unpaid Experiential Learning Program is a CT State-sponsored and sanctioned unpaid internship
program for high school students under the age of 18. It allows them to hold unpaid internships in for-profit organizations in the community that have a significant educational benefit.

The U.S.Department of Labor and the courts have created strict criteria for legally permitting an unpaid internship in a for-profit entity. (This applies to college internships as well.) The UELP Program helps to ensure those criteria are met and creates the platform for a work-based educational experience for high school students. Non-profit and civic organizations are exempt from this criteria. The DOL does not want to inhibit volunteer or civic engagement in the community. Read More!
Help Wanted:  Young HVRHS Career Experience Internship Program seeks internship opportunities at local organizations.

While one-day job shadows are a perfect vehicle to introduce a student to a job or career, internships are a longer-term way for our students to build skills, connect to curriculum, and establish connections in the local community with caring adults working in all kinds of careers. Read more!
