misc_none 2:00 PM  -  4:00 PM Let's talk about ISIS: does ISIS actually represent Islam or Muslims? Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

ISIS or Islamic State of Iraq & Syria, claims to represent Islam and claims its roots are in the Quran, the Muslim holy book and the Prophetic Tradition (Hadith), recorded sayings and doings of the Prophet Muhammad. Fortunately, this is untrue as there are numerous verses in the Quran and Hadith that expound justice, tolerance, peace and love for neighbors. Islam, the name of the religion, derives from the word peace in Arabic, Salaam. In this short presentation learn the tenets of Islam, the religious justification ISIS uses to kill Muslims and people of other faith groups, as well as the answer to those justifications from a practicing Muslim's perspective.

Presenters:

Sammy Aziz is a student of Muslim-Christian relations at Hartford Seminary and a member of the Bloomfield Muslim Community Center.

Vjosa Aziz works for the Madina Academy Islamic School in Windsor and is a member of Bloomfield Muslim Community Center.

John Parent is a student of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality at Hartford Seminary. John is active in promoting interfaith relations, education, understanding, peace and fellowship via various networks, joint-services, and community educational opportunities throughout the greater Hartford area.

PRODUCING A FIRST DRAFT: Part One

W. Somerset Maugham once said, “There are only three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, nobody knows what they are.” Maybe he was wrong, anyway. Different techniques work for different people, and Steve offers methods that take advantage of your own skills and interests. He offers a low-stress approach that will produce a few pages every day instead of trying to create a “whole novel” in one gulp. By breaking the novel down to the components of character, plot, and scene, these exercises will help you whether you like to plan everything out, jump right in, or do a little of each.

I’VE GOT A FIRST DRAFT: NOW WHAT?

Time to revise! In today’s competitive market, a first draft is nowhere near good enough to show to an agent or editor. Steve offers a practical approach on how to polish your work. He starts with the major issues (character, plot, structure, and pacing), then   tackles smaller but crucial problems including dialogue, transitions, and tense. He offers hints on proof-reading and copy-editing.

This lecture and listening Santa Opera Program is presented by Jeffrey Engel.

William Henry Fry(1813-1864) was an important figure in American music history(or so he thought). He was the first native born American to write large scale orchestral works, the first to write a grand opera and have it performed, the first music critic of a major American newspaper and the only composer of a Santa Claus Symphony. Despite such landmarks, he remains one of America's least remembered musicians. A fair fate? Come and decide for yourself!

A special performance by Donn Trenner, piano and Mike Asetta, bass.  Donn Trenner's remarkable musical career spans more than a half century in which he worked with many jazz greats including Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, and Charles Mingus, accompanied such artists as Nancy Wilson, Anita O’Day, Shirley McLaine, and Jack Jones, played in big bands led by Les Brown, Tommy Dorsey, and Charlie Barnet, toured with Bob Hope on six international Christmas shows and was musical director or the Kennedy Center show honoring Hope’s 75th birthday, appeared on over 100 recordings, and was the musical director of the Steve Allen television show.  The youthful 87-year-old New Haven native is back home in Connecticut and, in this opening program of the “Sundays at Three” series, is joined by veteran bassist Mike Asetta for a special hour of music and memories.  Not to be missed!
