"#MeToo" is the theme of the Sunday, December 17 services at The Unitarian Church in Westport. @ The Unitarian Church in Westport |  |  |

“#MeToo” is the theme of the Sunday, December 17 services at The Unitarian Church in Westport.
The reality is that most all women have experienced sexual harassment, abuse and denigration. Rev. John Morehouse’s sermon will address the issue of sexual harassment from a faithful perspective.

Why is that women have so long been abused and ignored in our society? What role does religion play in this system of oppression? And how can we as women and men find a way for women to be heard safely and healing to begin? Our service, organized by women members of the congregation, will include the prophetic voices of women past and present as well as a healing ritual for all women so hurt.

Celebrate the Season with Handel Messiah and The Masterwork Chorus @ Carnegie Hall Tickets
Dec 23 @ 8:00 pm
Celebrate the Season with Handel Messiah and The Masterwork Chorus @ Carnegie Hall |  |  |

The Masterwork Chorus and Orchestra with Music Director Chris Shepard return to the iconic acoustics of the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall to present their signature work, Handel’s Messiah on Saturday, December 23, 2017 at 8:00 pm. Last year’s performance was heralded by The New York Theatre Guild as “… a joyous addition to the holiday season and an exalted homage to Handel…”

Maestro Shepard is joined by soloists Karen Driscoll soprano, Helen Karloski mezzo-soprano, John Tiranno tenor and Chai-lun Yueh bass-baritone, all with voices ideally suited to the oratorio style. Messiah is a part of the fabric of The Masterwork Chorus; with these appearances the ensemble will have performed this oratorio two hundred sixty times, with one hundred twenty one occurring in Carnegie Hall. But, somehow, the music always seems fresh. It is a great work, and under the leadership of gifted music directors, the singers have come to understand its greatness on both an emotional and intellectual level. Their sensitive portrayal of Messiah’s power, passion and joy has inspired audiences since 1957, and will continue to do so for years to come.

Discounted Carnegie Hall tickets are available at www.masterwork.org until November 23rd. Full price tickets can be purchased at www.carnegiehall.org or (212) 247-7800.
