Messiah Sing-Along

Credo Music invites members of the community to Finney Chapel in Oberlin for the ninth annual sing-along of Handel’s Messiah.   This event is a wonderful opportunity for families to celebrate the holiday season and participate in a long-standing tradition.  The Sing-Along is presented in collaboration with Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the Oberlin College Office of Religious and Spiritual Life.

 

Admission to the Sing-Along Messiah is free. A freewill offering will be taken to benefit Family Promise of Lorain County.  Family Promise addresses the needs of homeless families by providing shelter, meals, and support services. Supporting Family Promise is great way to come together as a community, celebrate what we have, and lend a hand to those who need it most. 

 

The performance, conducted by Oberlin Conservatory String Division Director Peter Slowik, features prize-winning vocal soloists from Oberlin Conservatory and a chamber orchestra.  All are invited to attend and participate or sit back and listen. Scores will be available for rent for $5, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own. For questions and more information, contact the Credo office at 440.774.3658.

OBERLIN'S RESPONSE TO WWI

By April 1917, when the United States entered World War I, the people of Oberlin had long worried about the effects of growing global turmoil.  Town and college alike had aided relief efforts to the Allied Powers since the war’s beginning in 1914, and when duty called, they did not hesitate to send their finest young men and women to the battlefront. This illustrated presentation traces the experiences of Oberlinians who went to war, examines how questions of race and gender influenced their military service, describes how those who stayed at home supported the continuing war effort, and much more.

CONVERSATION ABOUT HOUSING NEEDS

Oberlin is a diverse community that continues to eveolve as our life situations change over time.  Housing options also need to eveolve and adapt to the challenges of our aging population and climate change.  The City of Oberlin and Oberlin College have committed to purchasing energy from renewable resources and promoting energy conservation in operations and services over the past five years.  These efforts have proven to be sound investments for the future. 

How can we promote similar strategies for our neighborhoods that will enhance our diversity of housing options as well as strengthen investment in our neighborhoods?

The Wright Brothers & Oberlin

While many people know that the Wright Brothers were from Dayton, Ohio and made their famous first flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, fewer know they had strong ties to Oberlin as well.  Professor Craig traces Wilbur and Orville’s Oberlin connections, including the key role of the "Wright Sister," Katharine, who graduated from Oberlin College and later served as a College Trustee. This Oberlin Heritage Center talk is prompted by the new biography of the Wright Brothers by Pulitzer Prize-winning author David McCullough.

Oberlin Women's History Walk

"One Step More": Oberlin Women's Outdoor  History Walk

In 1834, John J. Shipherd pledged Oberlin’s commitment to “the elevation of female character” through education. Little did he know, there was dynamite in that promise, and women carried the matches. This illustrated walking tour explores how Oberlin confronted and defined issues of femininity in the 19th and 20th centuries. Hear stories of powerful Oberlin women including Lucy Stone, Marianne Parker Dascomb, Adelia Field Johnston, Mary Church Terrell, and Lucy Stanton Day, and learn how they used John J. Shipherd’s promise to shape what it meant to be a woman in Oberlin and in the United States.

This outdoor history walk will be offered the first Saturday in June (6/4), July (7/2), and August (8/6)

Make your reservation on-line or call the Oberlin Heritage Center at 440-774-1700.

FLOWER BASKET SALE

NEWS FLASH….The 2016 hanging flower baskets are coming down this week and they will be on sale in the Oberlin IGA parking lot from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 15.

 

Over the years we have had people asking “What happens to the flower baskets once they are taken down?”  The answer was – they are thrown away.  So, this year we are making them available for sale to the public for only $15 each.  It is true that it is the end of the growing season; however, most of the baskets still have a lot of ‘life’ in them and the baskets themselves can be used to plant new flowers next spring.

 

Proceeds from the sale will help defray the cost of next year's baskets.

Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

The Korean War: How it Changed Our World

Presenter: Jiyul Kim, Colonel (retired), U.S. Army & Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Oberlin College

In this illustrated presentation sponsored by the Oberlin Heritage Center, Jiyul Kim discusses the Korean War and its long-term impact on today’s world and likely into the future. From the war’s origins in the rise of competing visions of Korean nationalism in the wake of World War I, to Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonialism by the U.S. and the USSR at the end of World War II, to the “war without end” that fundamentally affected the course of the Cold War, this talk will consider the role of the Korean War in creating today’s geostrategic landscape and the unprecedented centrality of American power. This is also the story of how a war overturned an enduring principle of the American republic that had rejected military power as the foundation of its purpose and values. 

This program is free and open to the public
