David Brooks is a multi-faceted musician – a pianist, violinist, violist, composer, and teacher. As a performer, he plays a repertoire ranging from Alkan to Zwilich, spanning the avant-garde and neglected romantics, as well as the established greats. David has performed across the United States and Europe and after a performance at Boston's Gardner Museum, the Boston Globe called his playing "especially lush." Compass News said of another performance, "Brooks left the audience stunned and speechless."

Humanist Discussion Group Fall Program Will Consider Escalating Inequality - 1st Meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
The UUA General Assembly voted in June to have this year's Congregational Study/Action Issue be Escalating Inequality. In our meeting on June 16 just before the GA Assembly met many of us agreed that Inequality of wealth, income and power was the most important issue facing the United States. So we have decided that Escalating Inequality will be the topic for this fall's Humanist Discussion Group.
We will meet the first and third Tuesdays from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Fellowship. At our first meeting on Tuesday Sept. 16 we will first watch the eight-minute video "Tax the Rich: an Animated Fairy Tale" followed by a group discussion of the general issue of wealth, Income and power Inequality in the United States.
"The disposition to admire, and almost to worship, the rich and the powerful, and to despise, or, at least, to neglect persons of poor and mean condition is the great and most universal cause of the corruption of our moral sentiments.” – Adam Smith
