Supporting Cornell University Sustainable Design

Eric Rutgers, a senior at Cornell, contacted us about a student-lead
project that involves over 120 volunteer Cornell students, 7 faculty
members, 3 African organizations, and 80 underprivileged African
children. The project team is called Cornell University Sustainable
Design (“CUSD”) and they are designing and building a sustainable
pre-school for Cosmo City, South Africa, this summer.

As the first
American university to collaborate on a project with the
Johannesburg-based non-profit organization Education Africa, they are
not only helping a developing community in South Africa, but also
providing Cornell students the chance to design a structure that will
actually become a reality.

Part of this process was the publication of
a 202-page reference book about Cosmo City, available in Cornell
libraries and for sale online. To realize this project, CUSD has to
raise all funds for construction, estimated at $150,000, by May 2011.
Find out more about CUSD at www.cusd.cornell.edu/ssa or by contacting
Eric at emr42@cornell.edu

Cornell University Glee Club is Coming to Sacramento

Purchase Tickets

What a great opportunity we have coming your way this January: a concert by the world-renowned Cornell Glee Club!  Don’t miss this rare chance to enjoy a piece of Cornell so close to home.Glee Club singing

Here’s what others who have heard the Glee Club sing have said:

“The Cornell University Glee Club has developed a virtuosic choral sound that has far more in common with the King’s Singers than 40 guys with a keg.  Under the direction of Assistant Conductor John Rowehl, this ensemble performed with uniform tonal production, clear diction and laserlike intonation to a warmly receptive Saturday night audience at the Kennedy Center.”  – The Washington Post

“I was just bowled over by your performance.  Seeing/hearing those words so sincerly and lovingly rendered — it was almost too much to bear.  What you communicated to your audience was way beyond technical mastery.  You guys truly LIFTED ME UP!” -Choral Conductor at ACDA Eastern Division Conference

Songs will include traditional Cornell songs and choral music from a variety of cultures, ranging from compositions from the European Renaissance to Folk Music of the Americas.  You’ll also get to hear The Hangovers, the a capella subset, performing popular music.

Can’t wait until January?  Watch the Glee Club on YouTube!

On previous tours, the Glee Club has sold out venues including the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center, so we recommend that you get your tickets soon.

Date: Wednesday, January 5, 2011

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Congregation B’nai Israel, 3600 Riverside Blvd.

Cost: $15

A reception will follow the concert in the temple social hall.
