Grant for Listening Program by Connecticut Humanities

grant from ct humanitiesConnecticut Humanities announced a $7,000 “planning grant” for the Greater Middletown Chorale’s Letter from Italy, 1944 program.

The grant will help with the upcoming “Connecticut Community Conversations: Letter From Italy, 1944 – A Generational Legacy” event. It will be used for scholarly support and advice.

Grant outcome

This conversation will deepen the links between war’s effects on individual veterans and the echoes absorbed by families and loved ones who support them after their return.

The Chorale produced a local conversation for the 2010 Elijah concert. That event brought together a Muslim imam, a Protestant minister, and a Jewish rabbi for an ecumenical dialogue.
