A Daily Lift – May 22, 2020

Good Morning,


I hope that you are doing well!


Our “lifts” for today:

From Jennifer Sheffield (CIS)

“The Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia had a concert scheduled for this month, which was to include a piece commissioned by the composer Ola Gjeilo.  The concert was, of course, cancelled, but we went ahead and (with expert tech help) put together this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22-NPzetHPw.

There’s also an interview with the composer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TMkbMqhxk1w.” – Jennifer


The Boston Pops Orchestra, under the direction of Keith Lockhart, performs a musical video tribute, John Williams’ “Summon the Heroes” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHmhQgF3rEE


It’s Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial start to summer. Just because we’re home right now doesn’t mean that we have to stop thinking about and planning future vacations! Check out National Parks and City tours, as well as travel movies and television shows to watch: https://www.wanderu.com/blog/virtual-travel/


The National Memorial Day Concert is Sunday night at 8:00 p.m., on PBS: https://www.pbs.org/national-memorial-day-concert/

This “television event honors the military service and sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform, their families and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.”


Have a nice long weekend!


Stay safe and healthy!
