The first organizational meeting is on Thursday, September 15th at 7:00 at the New School of Music. The address is: 25 Lowell Street (opposite Mt. Auburn Hospital). We plan to meet on Thursdays.

We will start as a singalong. The chorus will perform at events of Cambridge for Justice with Peace, at shelters for the homeless, The Children’s Hospital, Veterans Shelter, etc. Wherever we can help people who need a lift, feel isolated, yearn for peace. But mostly we are singing for each other.

Music for a While, an acapella choir of soloists, is being formed in a yet to be determined location in Boston. Music for a While will be composed of experienced singers and soloists. We hope to be a resource for the choral community.
Two Take Six songs – A Quiet Place, A Take Six Christmas.
Charles Ives – The Sixty Seventh Psalm SAATTB
Geographical Fugue – E. Toch in German (no singing just speaking SATB in rhythm).
David Fillingham, the music director, has a deep library of music from the Middle Ages to contemporary composers, and access to any piece needed. He graduated with a degree in Music from Brandeis University from 1981 – musicology, conducting, and orchestration.

It is the artists of the world, the feelers and thinkers, who will ultimately save us; who can articulate, educate, insist, sing, and shout the big dreams.
Leonard Bernstein

You are me, and I am you.
Isn't it obvious that we "inter-are"?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself,
so that you will not have to suffer.

I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy

1989. Written during a retreat for psychotherapists held in Colorado
in response to Fritz Perls' statement, "You are you, and I am me, and
if by chance we meet, that's wonderful. If not, it couldn't be helped."
