This musical memorial takes place on Sunday, Octo-,, ber 7, 2012 at thebld North Church, 195 Salem Street in Boston's North End beginning at 5:00 pm and lasts about 45 minutes. Donations welcomed. For fur- ther information, please call 978-264-0584 or visit Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179), renowned as the 'Sibyl of the Rhine', was a German writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary and polymath. She wrote theologi- cal, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as letters, sacred songs and poems, while supervising brilliant miniature illuminations. Her "Ordo Virtutum" tells of the struggle of Anima (the Soul) to follow the right path and not yield to the Devil's temptation. Anima calls on the Virtues to come to her aid. The concert also features chant and early polyphony from the medieval Spanish convent know as Las Huelgas, as well as works by Perotin and Oswald von Wolkenstein. Though considered a saint by acclamation for centuries, Hildegard was officially recog- nized as a saint earlier this year; she will be declared the 35 m "doctor of the church" by Pope Benedict XVI on October 7, the date of the concert. Project Director Cristi Catt has a strong reputation for her knowledge and experience with medieval and world music, particular the works of Hildegard yon Bingen. Ms. Catt is on the faculty of Longy School of Music of Bard College. Concordia Consort is ensemble-in-residence at Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord, MA, and has performed Old North Church several times over the past four years.

Connected Living is specifically designed for older adults and new computer users, and teaches participants and their family members how to post photos, share personal mes- sages and talk live over the Internet using Skype. Recent studies have shown that computer and Internet usage among older adults increases social c0nnectedness and supports good brain health. The program is part of EBNHC's Elder Service Plan, which enables adults, age 55 and older, to live independently. "Connected Living offers a vital opportunity for our seniors to connect with their loved ones and engage in the neces- sary social interaction that's proven to enhance brain health and promote wellness," said Laura Wagner, Vice President of Geriatric Services. "This is an important new dimension to the Elder Service Plan and we believe the seniors we serve will benefit greatly from it." Connected Living is free for Elder Service Plan members and will be offered at the Barnes School in East Boston, an ESP senior living site. Local residents interested in the Elder Service Plan or Connected Living can contact the Elder Service Plan at 617-568-4602 or visit the ESP office at 20 Maverick Square. f East Boston Ward 1 Republican Committee to Meet The East Boston Ward 1 Republican Committee meets Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 4:00 pm at the East Boston YMCA.
