Hear Together: LEARN

LEARN is addressing the adult illiteracy gap in Augusta County by creating one-on-one tutoring time in basic language skills and in English for Speakers of Other Languages. Community volunteers trained and certified by LEARN host the tutoring sessions to help adults address their daily literacy needs and reach individual goals. For this Hear Together we take a closer look at what it’s like to struggle with reading and writing in our society.

Hear Together: Jubilee Family Development

Jubilee was founded in 1999 in response to the community’s overwhelming need for a program that would target at-risk youth and offer them programs and services to help develop their academic and social skills.  Every day Jubilee programs and volunteers are leading young people into futures filled with hopes and goals.

Zephyrus presents Monteverdi at 450

Saturday, April 29, 2017
8:00 p.m.

To celebrate the 450th anniversary of the birth of Claudio Monteverdi, Zephyrus presents a concert of music by the revolutionary composer who changed the course of music history.  The centerpiece of the program is the stunning Missa in illo tempore, which Monteverdi published in the same volume as his famous Vespers setting, and which he intended as a demonstration of his mastery of traditional Renaissance counterpoint.  A collection of his finest motets rounds out the program.  For the Charlottesville performance, Zephyrus will be joined by the Washington Cornett and Sackbutt Ensemble, baroque violins, and organ. Donations will be accepted. For more information visit our website.
