VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York The Reverend John Hartman says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Tampa, FL TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS [Episcopal News Service] It’s one thing to practice piano duets in the parlor when no one’s home to hear. It’s another when your tunes, and possible missteps, reverberate across town.“When we practice on the main instrument, somebody always is listening,” says Lisa Lonie, carillonneur at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Whitemarsh, Pennsylvania, and at Princeton University in New Jersey. She recently launched a carillon duet concert series with Janet Tebbel, carillonneur at two carillons in the Germantown section of Philadelphia and organist at Emmanuel-Resurrection Episcopal Church in the Holmesburg section of Philadelphia.“Certainly we can do it on the practice console, but eventually you have to get upstairs, where the fine tuning is done,” Lonie said, adding, “Nothing shuts down a carillon faster than an irate neighbor.”The stamina required to hit the wooden batons, or keys, that pull wires to move the heavy clappers that strike a carillon’s bells also limits practice time in a way musicians playing many other instruments don’t face. The players strike the keys with their fists and operate the heaviest bells using foot pedals.“It’s tiring,” Tebbel said.[ooyala code=”R3M3VkYzr4ozO3HSNvqOLKWgLnxLPH4L” player_id=”d4a5625b85af485eb1fff640076c5be6″]“With other touring or duet partners,” Lonie said, “they can go in a sound studio and just practice together for hours. We can’t. We have like an hour, maybe an hour and a half max.”A traditional carillon, according to the Guild of Carillonneurs in North America, is “a series of at least 23 tuned bells, played from a keyboard that allows expressiveness through variation in touch, and on which the player, or carillonneur, can play a broad range of music – from arrangements of popular and classical music to original compositions created just for the carillon.”Among religious institutions, Episcopal or Anglican churches boast by far the most manually operated carillons – 37 – of any denomination on the continent. The oldest, Lonie said, was built in 1882 and resides at the Episcopal Church of the Holy Trinity in Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia.Every carillon is different, from the size and number of bells to the tower where they play. These are among the 49 bells composing the 18-ton carillon at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey. Photo: Sharon SheridanCarillons differ from bell tower to bell tower, with different numbers of bells and a different ambiance in each location, Tebbel said. “There’s no two carillons that are totally identical.”That makes touring a challenge, as the carillonneur must adjust to a different instrument and often a different number of notes in each location. “If you’re playing in an orchestra, you’re playing your violin that you know,” Tebbel said. “We don’t have that option.”Tebbel and Lonie adapt their music as needed from carillon to carillon. They also can adjust the wires connecting the keys to the bell clappers to accommodate how hard they hit the batons and how loud they want the bells to sound.As a performing duo, they can’t perform their program on the smallest instruments.“We would not perform this program on less than four octaves,” Tebbel said. “Having more is fun, but … we would not be able to play with integrity with less.”Cut the number of bells in half, you cut the console in half, Lonie explained. “You don’t have enough notes, and you don’t have enough room.”Added Tebbel, “There would be no differentiation between the two parts.”For their current series, which began on St. Peter’s Episcopal Church’s 49-bell, 18-ton carillon in Morristown, New Jersey, on June 9, the duo played selections ranging from part of Sergei Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet” to an arrangement of Camille Saint-Saens’ “Le Cygne (The Swan)” to a Disney medley.A wide variety of carillon repertoire is available and continues to be composed, Tebbel said. “We have some amazing composers for carillon who are active right now who understand the overtone of a series of bells. The big thing with carillons … is the high bells are by definition quieter because they’re less metal. You have to play your lower bells quieter and less often, and the upper bells are more active. The normal disposition of music is, you listen to the top notes for the melody.”For their concert, they chose from among about 40 different duets, she said. “A lot of the stuff is just arranged by various duos.”The duets are fun, she said, “because normally it’s a very lonely thing when you’re up in the tower. You get no input at all. You can’t tell if they’re listening. Often you can’t even hear the applause. There’s some recital venues where people don’t bother to applaud; they just honk their car horns.”That isolation offers an advantage, however, if the players wish to communicate during performances. During the concert at St. Peter’s, the duo counted beats, prompted each other and even apologized for a note played in the wrong octave.[ooyala code=”ozNHVkYzq4Nhp1ocfC7i7XPmCs2_iWCA” player_id=”d4a5625b85af485eb1fff640076c5be6″]“When you’re on stage, you can’t give those visual cues, and clearly those audible cues, or just laugh about it,” Lonie said. “That’s the fun of it, too. … I think it enhances our performance.”That doesn’t mean it’s easy.“It’s actually quite tiring to play duets,” Tebbel noted.“If something goes awry,” she said, she can “fake it” as a soloist. In a duet, “There ain’t no faking up there. We’ve got to keep it tight. That’s what ensemble playing is: It’s tiring, but also why it’s so much fun.”A carillonneur uses her or his fists and feet to hit wooden levers that pull wires attached to clappers on bells to make them ring. A player can adjust these wires, shown here, to accommodate how loudly the bells will play and the force used to move the clappers. Photo: Sharon SheridanTebbel started out playing handbells and first tried the carillon while studying organ at the University of Michigan. She went on a tour of Europe, and “I was hooked.”“When you’re in Europe, bells are part of your life,” she said. “They chime the hours, but they also chime out weddings and deaths and births and all kinds of stuff.”She recalled a Belgian friend who, upon hearing a bell ringing, commented, “Oh, somebody’s been born.”The carillonneur enjoys the “physicality” of playing the bells. “There’s a tremendous response … to your effort,” Tebbel said. “And there’s something about the timelessness of bells that has always gotten me.”That “timelessness” also appeals to Lonie, a pianist who played handbells before learning the carillon.“We’re just a blip in the life of these bells as players,” she said. “These bells last for hundreds of years.”She recalled ascending a bell tower in Amsterdam to reach a 1562 carillon. “There’s a wall with all the carillonneurs of this ancient instrument. The bells were the same, but we’re just a blip.”She also enjoys the way this musical instrument brings together a community. At the Morristown concert, people gathered on the church lawn to hear the concert but also listened from the booths of an outdoor art show across the street or while walking through town. “That’s fabulous,” Lonie said. “It’s a democratic instrument.”The duo last performed a concert series on tour together in 1997. This year, they will play June 23 in Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, where they performed together for the national carillonneurs’ guild in 2009 and where Lonie was featured on an NBC television special “Ringing in the Holidays at Longwood Gardens” and recorded her first solo CD, “The Bells of Christmas at Longwood Gardens.”Lisa Lonie plays the lower, “secundo,” part of a carillon duet during a concert at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey. Lonie and duet partner Janet Tebbel took turns playing the upper and lower parts, performed pieces in various styles – sometimes echoing each other’s melodies, sometimes accompanying each other – and interspersed a few solo works in the concert. Photo: Sharon SheridanThe series will continue in Pennsylvania at their respective churches – Tebbel’s First United Methodist Church of Germantown on July 16 and at St. Thomas on July 17 – and at Valley Forge Episcopal Chapel on July 18. Then they will travel to the McDonough School in Baltimore July 19; Chicago area bell towers, including Rockefeller Chapel with its largest bell weighing 18.5 tons, from Aug. 11-13; and Princeton University Aug. 25. They also hope to perform some recitals next year in Europe, when the World Carillon Federation meets in Antwerp, Belgium.Carillonneurs play with different styles and repertoires in different places, Tebbel noted. “There is a North American sound.”The duo have their own recognizable style. “It’s kind of like the Philadelphia Orchestra,” Lonie said. “It’s a Philadelphia sound.”But while they have a sound, they still lack a name.“We cannot come up with a good name for ourselves. There’s a challenge,” Lonie said, inviting creative suggestions. “There is time. We can adjust the program!”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

Canon Tom Callard. Photo: Diocese of Western Massachusetts[Anglican Communion News Service] Bishop Doug Fisher of Western Massachusetts has appointed a Rabbi in Residence for the diocese’s Christ Church Cathedral in Springfield. From Sept. 1, Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro will take adult education classes and will also “preach periodically in the Sunday liturgy.”The announcement was made July 25 by Fisher and Canon Tom Callard, the cathedral’s priest-in-charge. In addition to preaching and teaching, Fisher said that Shapiro would “offer his wisdom on a host of social justice concerns.”Speaking to the masslive.com news website, Shapiro said that the new post “offers me and parishioners of the cathedral an opportunity to explore faith and history in ways we have never done before … I anticipate a unique opportunity to teach and preach as well as see my own tradition from a new very rich perspective.”Speaking to the same website, Fisher explained the thinking behind the appointment: “Christians and Jews share so much – a common father in Abraham, the Hebrew scriptures, belief in a God who is both transcendent and within us, and a common challenge from the Prophets.“Jesus was Jewish and constantly quoted the Prophets. Rabbi Mark will expand our understanding of both Judaism and Christianity by his preaching and teaching.”Shapiro’s journey to the rabbinic ministry began at home in Toronto, Fisher said in a statement. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in intellectual history at York University, Shapiro attended the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati where he was ordained as a rabbi. He earned the Doctor of Divinity degree from the same institution in 2002.

While rector of St. James, Baton Rouge, I observed Ormonde participating in diocesan services, always with a grace and ease that displayed his deep knowledge of the Liturgy and ability to work well with clergy unfamiliar with the ceremonial demands of large events. He helped us see the strategic, servant witness of the vocational diaconate and to encourage its full development in the life of the Church. Ormonde will be missed. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Curate Diocese of Nebraska [The Association for Episcopal Deacons] The Association for Episcopal Deacons is saddened by the loss of Archdeacon Ormonde Plater, Diocese of Louisiana, to the worldwide diaconal community. Ormonde died Aug. 6, the Feast of the Transfiguration, after a long illness.It would be hard to overestimate Ormonde’s contribution to the development of the Episcopal Church’s restoration of the distinctive diaconate in ordained ministry, and his theological leadership extended around the globe. His book Many Servants: An Introduction to Deacons, provided a historical overview of the Episcopal diaconate and a rationale for the renewal of the order. He also authored The Deacon in the Liturgy and Intercession, as well as other volumes which continue to play an essential role in the education and formation of deacons in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada.Ormonde’s leadership extended to the creation of the organizational infrastructure needed for the renewed diaconate to prosper, as well. He was an early member of AED’s predecessor organization, the North American Association for the Diaconate, and he served faithfully on our board and as our president. In his last appearance at one of AED’s assemblies, he provided a sage and comprehensive overview of the history and development of the Episcopal Church’s diaconal movement. An early adopter of internet technologies, for over 20 years he has hosted the anglodeacons and archdeacons Yahoo groups, a modality of communications which has enabled deacons to communicate around the world and vastly expand their ability to collaborate in both diaconal action and in reflection on the renewed order.Ormonde was ordained a deacon in 1971 at St. Anna’s Episcopal Church in New Orleans. Over the years he served the Episcopal Church in parish, diocesan, prison and hospital ministries.There are indeed many stories of Ormonde that will be shared as we celebrate his life and ministry among us. Please add your reflections and your pictures as together, we mourn the passing of this worldwide diaconal leader. We know he rests in peace and are certain he has risen in glory. Well done, good and faithful servant!Read the New Orleans Advocate‘s obituary here. August 14, 2016 at 2:35 pm I am a better person and deacon because I knew Ormonde Plater. He always said that it was a deacon’s role to build and form the backbone of the social and justice ministries of the church so the laity could do the hands-on work. The deacon would be there to offer help and guidance. Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA August 9, 2016 at 7:56 pm I am in the formation to the Diaconate- his reads, I believe should be mandatory for all who are postulants in formation for the diaconate.

Balances and dissonances to offer a new, contemporary image, opposite to historical reconstruction.Save this picture!© Barbara Corsico PhotograpyProject gallerySee allShow lessShenzhen Shenwan Street Park / AUBE CONCEPTIONSelected ProjectsHouse F16 / Studio Bloco ArquiteturaSelected Projects Share Houses CopyHouses•Bra, Italy Save this picture!© Barbara Corsico Photograpy+ 36Curated by Paula Pintos Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938460/villa-trisano-boda-architetti Clipboard “COPY” Manufacturers: TECU®, Weber, Aeropan, Schuco Federico Bertoli and Daniel Antoni Year: “COPY” Architects: bodá architetti Area Area of this architecture project Lead Architects: Villa Trisano / bodá architettiSave this projectSaveVilla Trisano / bodá architetti Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/938460/villa-trisano-boda-architetti Clipboard Italy CopyAbout this officebodá architettiOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBraOn FacebookItalyPublished on May 12, 2020Cite: “Villa Trisano / bodá architetti” 12 May 2020.

By Andy Eubank – Feb 1, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Hoosier Soybean Farmers Working the Statehouse Hoosier Soybean Farmers Working the Statehouse SHARE Previous articleInvesting in EfficiencyNext articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE ISA issues focusJoe SteinkampIndiana road funding has become a serious state issue and the Indiana Soybean Alliance wants to see improvements in the state’s infrastructure. House Bill 1001, a road funding bill, is advancing through the statehouse. It would provide for the transfer of the state’s excess reserves to the local road and bridge matching grant fund and the state highway fund. A gas tax increase is in the bill too. President of Indiana Soybean Alliance Joe Steinkamp says ISA is working in support of the bill.“We’re basically in favor of the gasoline tax for the Indiana soybean farmers because we need to keep great roads and bridges here in Indiana to get our crops to market in a timely manner. So that’s something that we’re working on.”As always ISA is keenly interested in any property tax proposals, and this session SB 308 is advancing through the state senate.“The changes in property taxes will hopefully make it fair for soybean farmers and all farmers in Indiana,” he told HAT. “It’s about the rate of our property taxes increase and how it’s calculated and the soil productivity index, all things that are going to make a difference to soybean farmers. Our property taxes have been going up at exorbitant rates while at the same time we’re going to go through a downturn it appears in the economy for farmers. So we need to get that balance so we can have a positive bottom line.”Steinkamp added that SB 308 does not provide a tax cut to farmers or anyone else, it merely halts the dramatic increases being assessed farmers and other land owners.

That early church was built quite literally on faith and charity from remainder brick and an operating budget that turned just about all of its revenue into active ministry. Through 65 years of outreach, LCPC grew to 2,000 active attendees doing ministry throughout Southern California and in 40 countries around the world. In 2010, the church completed a campus expansion, which doubled its physical base for ministry and kept its historical sanctuary as the heart of the new grounds.La CaÃ±ada Presbyterian Church, 626 Foothill Boulevard, La CaÃ±ada, (818) 790-6708 or visit www.lacanadapc.org.About LCPCâ€™s Parent EducationFor 33 years, LCPCâ€™s Parent Education Program has maintained its legacy of quality education and reputable staff.
