Event Description

Southern Connecticut State University will present a concert by the “First Lady of the Organ,” Diane Bish, on April 9, at 7:00 p.m. Bish will perform organ favorites and original hymn arrangements at Yale University’s Battell Chapel, along with a choir composed of local vocalists, including members of the Heritage Chorale and other area groups.

 

Acclaimed organist Bish performs at famed cathedrals, concert halls and churches around the world. For 25 years, she has aired her dazzling performances to over 300 million people internationally on her television program, The Joy of Music. Her performances of classical and sacred music link her to legends like Leonard Bernstein and Eugene Ormandy. Bish was the first American woman to record on the four organs of Freiburg Cathedral, Germany.

 

The Boston Globe said of a Bish performance, “Her playing is virtuosic and solidly musical…she blasted the crowd out of its pews in a whooping standing ovation.”

 

In 1989, Bish was awarded the National Citation by the National Federation of Music Clubs of America, the Federation’s highest honor. She is known as the “First Lady of the Organ” because of her unparalleled achievements. Bish’s book, Church Music Explosion, describes her personal philosophy of excellence in church music. She has numerous recordings and is also a composer and conductor.

 

Tickets are $35, $20 and $5 for students. Group packages are available. For tickets or more information, call the Lyman Center box office at (203) 392-6154 or visit tickets.southernct.edu.

 

A premium package is also available for $100 and includes a special private reception with Bish on April 8 at SCSU, a photo opportunity, an autographed copy of her CD On Tour, and premium seating at the April 9 concert. Call (203) 392-5598 for details.

 

All proceeds from the event will support arts programs at SCSU.

LISC, with support from the Department of Justice, has been investing intensively in the work and wellbeing of frontline community violence intervention (CVI) workers. A new report on CVI practitioner trauma and strategies for their wellbeing, and a panel at a recent CVI conference, hammer home the urgency of informed, well-resourced support for these critical community servants.

The Farm Bill presents an opportunity to provide rural communities and people the resources they need to flourish. LISC’s Mark Kudlowitz and Nicole Barcliff examine where things stand in Congress and how the legislation can support the needs of families while also revitalizing communities that have long experienced capacity constraints that hinder community and economic development opportunities.
