Bill & Chu: Music for Earth Day
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for a YouTube video premiere of viola-bass duo Susan Bill and Carion Chu!

Susan Bill and Carion Chu met while playing in Cape Cod Symphony and discovered a strong affinity for playing different styles of music as a viola-bass duo.  Bill & Chu have developed a concert program which draws equally from the great classical repertoire and the great American songbook, and have incorporated keyboards and vocals along the way.  They are equally at home playing at assisted living places, street fairs, and concert halls.

Susan Bill is a native of Maine.  She received her bachelor's degree from the University of Maine and holds a master's degree in viola from the Boston Conservatory of Music.  She has been an active member of Boston's free-lance music community for many years, playing with such groups as the Cape Cod Symphony, New Hampshire Symphony, Vermont Symphony, Portland Symphony, Central Mass. Symphony, and others.  She teaches violin and viola both privately and in the QPS string program, and also at EKS Music School in Quincy Center.  She founded the Atlantic Youth Orchestra and serves as its conductor and music director, and has since served as conductor to other groups.  She also coaches the Boston City-Wide String Orchestra in Roxbury.  Ms. Bill has been a church musician all her life and was organist and choir director at St. Chrysostom's Episcopal Church in Wollaston before assuming the position she now holds, that of organist and director of music at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Braintree. 

Carion Chu was born in Hong Kong. Her fascination with the sound of the double bass beckoned her to take up the instrument when she was a teenager. She immediately joined local youth orchestra and other groups. She studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in England with Rodney Slatford, and various courses in Italy studied with Franco Petracchi. She had performed in England, France, Israel, Cypress, Australia, Italy, US and Canada. In 1988 Carion moved to the Boston area and is known to both symphonic and chamber music audiences. She is currently principal bass with Cape Cod Symphony, also perform with Plymouth Philharmonic, Symphony by the sea and South Florida Symphony. She lives in Milton, Massachusetts.

 

This performance will premiere live on our YouTube page.

Live Online: Be Outdoors with the Appalachian Mountain Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

two people hiking in the woods

Join the Appalachian Mountain Club's Bill Cannon and Sue Svelnis as they introduce you to the wonderful world of hiking! From a gentle stroll through the woods to a challenging workout with lots of hills, there are so many ways to enjoy nature and so many great places to begin close to home. 

What is the appropriate clothing to wear? What equipment should you bring with you? The AMC will lead you in choosing your adventure, and guide you with tips on what steps to take. Plan your next adventure and Learn the principles of Leave No Trace and the importance of protecting nature for all its inhabitants.  

 

Bill Cannon has been active with the Appalachian Mountain Club since 2012. He was the Conservation Chair for the Southeastern Mass. Chapter for 3 years and now holds the Vice Chair position. He also regularly leads hikes including a Full Moon series at Borderland State Park in the fall and winter and an evening series of hikes at the Blue Hills in the spring and summer.

Bill’s love of nature began as a child and motivated his active participation in Cub Scouts when his children were young. He enjoys hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. And he especially loves to go camping with his wife Regina in their 1978 VW Westfalia Camper Bus.

 

Sue Svelnis is the Education Chair as well as a local hike leader for the Southeastern Mass. Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. Although a South Shore native, she had no idea there were so many great local hiking spots until she joined the AMC in 2014. She has also come to appreciate hiking in all four New England seasons.

Sue hikes regularly with her dog, Danny Boy and also volunteers walking dogs for the Quincy Animal Shelter. Her other hobbies include photography and gardening.

 

Please join us on Zoom (meeting ID 830 3940 5854). We recommend using the free Zoom app. You can call (646) 558-8656 and use the same meeting ID to listen to the audio. You may also view the program live on our YouTube channel and on our Facebook page.
