Naperville Men’s Glee Club Organizes “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” Jan 15, 2015 5:23 PM
The Naperville Men’s Glee Club (NMGC) is organizing “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015”, a community chorus of men and women touched by cancer. Local singers will come together starting in February to share hope and experience the rewards of musical performance. Cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family members and other singers are invited to join. There is no cost to participate and enrollment is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. The volunteer chorus will start weekly one hour rehearsals at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 7, 2015, at The Church of The Brethren, 1020 West Jefferson, Naperville IL. Building on the success of the 2013 project, NMGC Artistic Director Bonnie Klee Roberts will again conduct “NMGC Voices of Hope”. Roberts explained, “There will be a wide variety of four-part music for the group to sing in the first rehearsal - some will be familiar to the 2013 singers but many songs will be new music to learn over the ten weeks.” Ms. Roberts continued, “It’s important for people to understand that this concert is not intended to be a fundraiser for cancer. The purpose is to gather people who have, or have had, a role in the fight against cancer and to provide an opportunity for them to feel the inspiration, thrill, and happiness that comes through weekly group singing and performance”. “I started thinking about doing Voices of Hope again during those wonderful rehearsals of the first chorus in 2013. After their performance, I received many voice mails, handwritten notes, and emails about the impact and meaning of the project. Reading their stories, I was sold on my premise of group fellowship and the inspiration of song to bring about a special kind of healing. So we decided to do Voices of Hope again in 2015” added Roberts. The Glee Club is expecting a chorus of 200+ men and women and over 110 people have already signed up. Additional information is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” will perform in concert at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at Wentz Concert Hall, on the campus of North Central College, Naperville. The lobby of Wentz Hall will display “Lilly Oncology on Canvas – Expressions of a Cancer Journey”, a traveling art exhibit of award-winning paintings by cancer patients and survivors courtesy of Lilly Oncology and The National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship. Thanks to the generosity of the DuPage Community Foundation, cancer survivors may reserve and receive a complimentary concert ticket starting in April, 2015. General admission and group ticket sales will begin in April 2015. The “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” project is supported in part by the City of Naperville SECA Fund, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation, and Genentech. The Naperville Men’s Glee Club was chartered in 1988 as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Sponsored in part by the City of Naperville, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation and many generous local businesses and citizens, they have earned a national reputation as a high caliber male chorus. The Glee Club has performed with many prestigious collegiate glee clubs (male and female) including the U. S. Naval Academy, Miami University, Penn State, Notre Dame, the University of Illinois, Pitt, Ohio University and the University of Michigan. In 2013, NMGC celebrated its 25th anniversary of “Bringing Harmony to Life” with a year of special concerts including “NMGC Voices of Hope”, the President’s Day Choral Festival honoring JFK at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D. C., and their 25th Anniversary Concert with the Varsity Men’s Glee Club from the University of Illinois.

Omar is a Palestinian baker by day who climbs over the separation wall to visit his girl Nadja. By night, he risks his life with friends to strike at the Israeli military. Arrested after the killing of an Israeli soldier, Omar becomes an informant beginning a dangerous game. Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad has made a dynamic, action-packed drama about the insoluble moral dilemmas and choices facing those on the frontlines of a conflict that shows no sign of letting up. (97 min.) Vivir es facil con los ojos cerrados (Living is easy with eyes closed)” (Spain) – Feb. 11 Directed by David Trueba It is 1966 in Spain. English teacher and die-hard Beatles fan Antonio resolves to go on a road trip to Almería to meet John Lennon, who is shooting a film there. On the journey, he picks up two young runaways: Bethlehem – a pregnant girl fleeing a convent, and Juanjo – a boy escaping a dictatorial father. ‘Living is easy with eyes closed,’ from Lennon’s “Strawberry Fields Forever,” evokes the spirit of the 60s while reflecting on a time in Spanish history when dreams seemed impossible. (108 min.) “Waste Land” (Brazil) – Feb. 18 Directed by Lucy Walker Filmed over three years, “Waste Land” documents renowned artist Vik Muniz as he journeys from Brooklyn, to his native Brazil and the world’s largest garbage dump located on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. He photographs an eclectic band of “catadores,” self-designated pickers of recyclable materials. With collaboration from these inspiring characters, Muniz creates photographic images using garbage that reveal the dignity and despair of the catadores, who begin to re-imagine their life. This documentary shows the transformative power of art and the alchemy of the human spirit. (99 min.) “Wadjda” (Saudi Arabia) – Feb. 25 Directed by Haifaa al-Mansour Wadjda, a 10-year old Saudi girl living in Riyadh, dreams of owing a green bicycle that she passes every day. She wants to race against Abdullah but riding bikes is frowned upon for girls and Wadjda’s mother refuses to buy the bike. Wadjda raises the money herself by entering a Koran competition at school. She wins, but is told that the money will instead be donated to Palestine on her behalf. This is the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature-length film by a female Saudi director. Wadjda presents a vivid window into a corner of the globe where cinema has been all but silenced. (98 min.) “La Vita e bella (Life is Beautiful)” (Italy) - March 4 Directed by Roberto Benigni In 1930s Italy, a carefree Jewish book keeper named Guido has a perfect life marrying a lovely woman from a nearby city. They have a son and live happily together until the occupation of Italy by German forces. In an attempt to hold his family together and help his son survive the horrors of a Jewish Concentration Camp, Guido imagines that the Holocaust is a game and that the grand prize for winning is a tank. (116 min.) “Brat (Brother)” (Russia) - March 11 Directed by Aleksei Balabanov Danila Bagrov returns home after serving in the Russian Army. Not satisfied in the small town, he moves to St. Petersburg to be with his older brother and start a new life. He discovers his brother is a contract killer and gangster, and is forced into the criminal world. This gangster film depicts the problems of Russia in the 1990s: crime, poverty, disaffection of the Russian youth and failing families brought about in the aftermath of the Soviet collapse. (99 min.) “The Wind that Shakes the Barley” (Ireland) - March 18 Directed by Ken Loach Set in rural Ireland in the 1920s, this war drama tells the fictional story of two County Cork brothers Damien and Teddy O’Donovan who join the Irish Republican Army to fight for Irish independence from the United Kingdom. While one brother started as a socialist and changes to adopt the ways of war, the other brother mellows after experiencing the endless suffering of war. The brothers oppose each other during the Irish Civil War just years later. (127 min.) “The Lady” (Burma) - March 25 Directed by Luc Besson Based on the true story of Aung San Suu Kyi (Nobel Peace Prize, 1991), the Lady is an epic love story about Suu Kui and her husband Michael Aris, and their extraordinary sacrifice of family happiness for a higher cause. Despite distance, long separations and a dangerously hostile regime, their love endured. “The Lady” follows the peaceful quest for democracy in Burma by Suu Kyi who was held under house arrest for more than fifteen years by military junta.(132 min.)
