KUDOS

"Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You, Ludwig" was a wonderful presentation by Howard Sprout in four sessions on Beethoven's 9th Symphony.  In the final session, he summarized the other three and played the moving performance on December 25, 1989 conducted by Leonard Bernstein. This took place in Berlin as the wall was coming down. This Berlin Celebration Concert can be found here.

Here is a recorded sample of the "Movie Buffs" course with James Hanley known for his long involvement with Cinestudio at Trinity College. After a few moments of listening, you will quickly realize his breadth of knowledge about movies and the movie industry as well as his perceptive insights into how they relate to our culture of the arts and commerce. This particular class quickly got into issues of race and racism and how they play out in the film industry. There are also several "must see" movie suggestions.


                                      SPRING IS COMING!!

 Although Spring has not quite arrived, the ALP Spring semester is underway, and the membership is enjoying many and varied class selections!  Many classes have not yet begun, so it's not too late to register!

 SEABURY PARKING FOR CLASSES 

Seabury is pleased to offer parking for all ALP classes at the convenient Hilltop Parking Lot at the north end of our campus (near the raised garden beds and pickleball court). After parking, ALP members may enter the door with the large awning across the parking lot where there will be signs to direct you to your classrooms. Park in unnumbered spaces only.

For special events like the preview meetings or annual meeting, we will continue to provide shuttle service to Seabury's Main Entrance from the parking lot at the Chinese Baptist Church adjacent to Seabury. 

If you have difficulty walking from the Hilltop parking lot to your class, use the parking lot by the new chapel on your right as you enter Seabury. Then take the short walk to the main entrance. Valet parking is no longer available.

There is NO PARKING along the curb across from the main entrance. You will be ticketed!


SPECIAL NOTICE for those people with difficulty hearing:

Seabury's Heritage Hall and The Bishop's Chapel are equipped with a Hearing Loop, an "induction loop" system, which magnetically transmits sound to hearing aids and cochlear implants with telecoms (T-coils). With a simple switch, guests with hearing loss can hear from the microphone directly to the hearing aid. People with hearing loss are now experiencing a reality where hearing aids also serve as wireless loudspeakers, delivering clear, customized sound from inside their ears. Thank you, Seabury!

Evaluation Form

If you have recently completed an ALP course and did not fill out an evaluation form as you left, you may provide an evaluation by filling out an online form here.


GET INVOLVED!

We could use more help.  If you would like to "give something back" to our Adult Learning Program in return for all that you've received (or are about to receive), please let an ALP board member know! At your next ALP session, let the registrar know that you are interested, and someone will get in touch to see how you can be of service.
