2017 Concerts Raise $11,100!

$11,100 was raised from the three 2017 Canticles performances and associated contributions for the following organizations that care for persons living with HIV/AIDS and in remembrance of lives lost: The AIDS Resource Foundation for Children, the NAMES Project of Northern NJ, and New Jersey AIDS Services.

As we marked the 20th anniversary of the concerts, we were thrilled to welcome back past Canticles performers Margo Hennebach and Mark Saunders of the international trio, Mad Agnes.  They shared original folk and Celtic songs and included the audience in some vocal improv.  Also featured were the Dan Crisci Jazz Trio and the Triad Vocal Ensemble.

The spirit-filled music, the power of the memorial Quilt panels on display, the moments of sharing from representatives from the charities, and the times of reflection contributed to an incredible sense of community.  Special thanks to our hosting congregations: St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Bridgewater, the Parsippany United Methodist Church and St. Joseph’s Church in Maplewood!
