Baroque Splendor:
Bach’s Magnificat and Handel’s Coronation Anthems
 
  On October 26 and 27, Crescendo celebrates its 15th anniversary with Baroque music for chorus, soloists, and a period instrument orchestra who together perform two of choral music’s greatest masterworks: Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat and George Frideric Handel’s Coronation Anthems.
 
The splendor and jubilation of Bach’s Magnificat, written in 1723 in Leipzig, anticipated the great choruses of Bach’s later works, such as the Mass in B minor. Handel's Coronation Anthems were originally commissioned for the coronation of George II of Great Britain, and have become standard for later coronations. The four ceremonial anthems, Zadok the Priest, Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, The King Shall Rejoice, and My Heart Is Inditing, have been popular and regularly played in concerts and festivals--even during Handel's own lifetime. They were originally composed for an enlarged choir of the Chapel Royal, with an orchestra of 160 players.
 
Performers are the Crescendo Chorus, Soprano Julianne Baird, acclaimed as “one of the most extraordinary voices in the service of early music that this generation has produced,” as well as internationally renowned singers countertenor Nicholas Tamagna, tenor Philip Anderson, and bass-baritone Joseph-Charles Beutel. The Period Instrument Orchestra of trumpets, timpani, oboes, bassoons, traversi (Baroque flutes), strings and basso continuo are played by Early Music specialists from Boston and New York. Crescendo’s Founding Artistic Director Christine Gevert will conduct. 
 
Concerts are Saturday, Oct. 26, 4pm at Saint James Place, 352 Main St. in Great Barrington, and 4pm Oct. 27 at Trinity Church, 484 Lime Rock Rd., Lakeville. Tickets are $35 general; $100 premium, $10 students. For more information and tickets:  www.worldclassmusic.org .

Health Care and the Future of Remote Care
Health Care has been essentially the same for decades. You call a doctor, make an appointment, and then visit their office to get your issues addressed. Whether it's for being sick or just routine care, the process is pretty much the same. It's an in-person, at-the-office experience for more or less everyone. We take time off of work, drive to the doctor's office, and spend at least an hour or two out of our day for the process. But with advances in technology and more and more things being done, online or remotely - is that the new future of health care? For some, it will become the norm.  Continue Reading

On October 18 at noon, Noble Horizons welcomes cardiologist Dr. Donald Soucier from The Heart Center at Sharon Hospital who will discuss topics surrounding women’s cardiac health. Of particular note will be his focus on the high rates of congestive heart failure in women who now account for 50% of all hospital admissions for heart failure. Dr. Soucier will review the causes, symptoms and treatments of heart failure as well as other issues related to women's cardiac health. Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary light lunch buffet at 11:45 am.
 
Dr. Soucier received his medical degree from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences and has been in practice for more than 35-years.  Dr. Soucier will speak and take questions between 12 and 1 pm. Reservations are necessary and may be made at  www.noblehorizons.org  or 860-435-9851.

Don’t miss  Earthbound Buddha,  artist/sculptor Karl Saliter’s exhibit and sale of new works opening at Noble Horizons on October 18, 5-7 pm . Saliter describes the collection as “a loving body of work trafficking in everyday aspects of the spiritual search. It is reverent. It offers an unusual series of multi-media works in recycled materials.  People who come to this show will get to be part of a delightful lighthearted turn on "wisdom," and short circuit their own spiritual search with laughter.”
 
Karl Saliter is well-known for his outdoor sculpture which can be found throughout the world as well as the Noble Horizons campus. He is also celebrated as a circus/comic/multi-skill performer and has graced stages as varied as the Metropolitan Opera, the Boston Celtics, and The Humor Project. â€śArt,” Saliter explains, “is completely the water I swim in. The two things I cultivate in my mind are gratitude and wonder.” Saliter’s work can be viewed weekends, 11 am-4 pm through November 10. 
 
On October 26 at 11 am, join Charlie Bell, writer and long-time teacher at The Hotchkiss School, who will share stories from his 19-month, 10,000 mile solo run around the perimeter of the continental United States. After earning an engineering degree at Princeton University where he also served as Class Poet, Bell began a career selling IBM computers. Three years later, he traded in his briefcase and wingtips for a backpack and running shoes, choosing to explore the United States by foot. 
 
Bell allowed himself just one night per month in a hotel, otherwise sleeping on beaches and mountaintops, in churches and jail cells, rest areas and schoolyards, and in the homes of countless strangers who reached out to him along the way.  After the trip,  Reader’s Digest  and  Sports Illustrated  published articles about his expedition and Bell created a weekly series of first-person stories that ran for nearly a year on Connecticut Public Radio. The series resulted in a profile in  The New York Times  and a featured slot at the Connecticut Storytelling Festival. The complete account of Bell’s adventure will be published as a trilogy titled  long /run ; registration for the program is at  www.noblehorizons.org  or 860-435-9851.
 
On October 30 , at 11:30 am, representatives from the Western Connecticut Area Agency on Aging (WCAAA) will explain the many changes to Medicare in 2020.  WCAAA is funded by federal state and local sources and does not sell insurance products; their information is transparent and unbiased. This program is designed to help beneficiaries understand the coverage options available to them in the coming year. Helping clients understand their coverage options will ensure they make informed decisions during Fall Open Enrollment. The program will begin with a complimentary lunch, followed by a Medicare information session with several WCAAA professionals.
 
Attendees will receive an update on changes planned for 2020 for Part D (prescription drug) plans, Medicare Advantage plans, Supplemental/Medigap plans and Medicare assistance programs which can help beneficiaries pay for their Medicare costs.   WCAAA is a private, non-profit corporation which, through its designation as an Area Agency on Aging, is an advocate and resource for information and referral to services for older adults. Registration is necessary at  www.noblehorizons.org  or 860-435-9851

Third Quarter 2019 Housing Results Are In
The third quarter of 2019 saw real improvement over the first two quarters of the year, and in many markets it was the first quarter to experience sales growth in single family homes over the same period the prior year since 2017. Even the upper end experienced a turnaround in certain areas where the luxury segment has been stagnant for some time now. The gains we witnessed across our markets, though based on one quarter alone, leave us cautiously optimistic moving forward. Please read our 2019 Third Quarter Market Watch for our full analysis.
