I can’t stand lemon on my seafood and I don’t understand why it’s a thing that people think if they’re serving seafood they have to serve it with lemon. Why?

Concert and Lecture Series Meetinghouse

From  FOB Charles Nazarian

On Saturday evening, December 16th the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation will host a return performance by The Musicians of the Old Post Road. This beloved chamber ensemble gave us an amazing performance last year. They fell in love with our acoustics, the ambience of the historic building, and hope to make a future recording in the Meetinghouse. ‘Follow the Star’ will showcase music written for Epiphany as we approach the holidays with festive selections by Georg Philipp Telemann, Christian Geist and a cantata by Christoph Graupner. The ensemble performs on period instruments including violin, viola, cello, flute and harpsichord.

Aside from the music, this will be a special evening as we recognize the many grants and significant individual gifts to our fire-sprinkler & deterrence project. The treasured 1806 Meetinghouse, the largest and oldest surviving example in Gloucester, is now protected from fire with a state-of-the-art sprinkler system and walls filled with fire-proof, high-efficiency thermal insulation. The completed project is Phase I of a strategic plan to completely restore the building by the City’s 400th anniversary in 2023 and make the Meetinghouse sustainable for centuries to come.

The concert poster is below and attached with the press release. Please do all you can to publicize this fine community event.

Many thanks,

Podcast episode on Gloucester’s Howard Blackburn

Every year, hundreds of Gloucester fishermen went to sea and never returned. Howard Blackburn should have been one of them. His story of survival against the odds made him a local hero, but he didn’t stop there. He went on to perform one of the great feats of seafaring – and then he did it again.
