Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
Last night dozens of people from multiple New Haven neighborhood marched with Fair Haven residents to publicly declare our opposition to the increased gun violence in our neighborhood and in our city. The rally was organized by Manuel Camacho from the nonprofit Ice the Beef. Manuel is a Fair Haven resident and s New Haven Public School student. It was inspiring to walk with such a diverse group of people who care about our neighborhood and our city. The spoken word performances and prayers were powerful. Anyone who is interested can help keep the momentum going by attending the nightly gatherings at 124 Grand Avenue from 6-8pm every night for the rest of September. This is where the march ended last night. Hope to see you there tonight. See the articles below about the march:
This evening we switch it up a bit by having the Music Haven Quartet in the parking lot at the corner of Grand and East Pearl with Music Haven's Haven String Quartet!
Featured in the New York Times and on NPR, and sought after for both their command on the concert stage and their mastery as teachers, Haven String Quartet has been described as “exquisite” by the NH Register.
Its four members represent the world’s top conservatories and bring outstanding chamber music performances to New Haven neighborhoods and throughout the region with a full season of concerts, recitals, educational workshops, and performances for diverse audiences in public spaces.
The Quartet serves as the permanent quartet-in-residence and teaching faculty for Music Haven, and spearheads the organization’s tuition-free strings program for youth, which has been recognized as a top 50 after-school arts program in the country by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities for six years. Each member of HSQ teaches a full studio of 15-20 Music Haven students in private lessons, group classes, studio classes, chamber groups, and an advanced chamber orchestra.
See you tonight!
