July 4th Event

Hope you had a wonderful July 4th.

To those of you who chose to participate or witness our performance, Thank you all for making the July 4th memorable.
After six presentations in 3 tunnels and a park bench we did our bit to spread the word.

The chorus members have invested a fair bit of time to make the Declaration formidable. As I mentioned before, I want to continue to rehearse and grow the group. This is with the aim of:
1. Memorizing the text so the real drama of it can come out and
2. Grow the chorus to 50 or so members by the end of October
3. Present the document to more groups and be part of existing and future events designed to raise awareness of our history and our civic responsibilities as citizens.

Our next meeting will be at:
Tunnel number 1:
7:00pm on Wednesday July 9th.
see map below!
Its a pleasure to work with all of you. Please continue to invite friends and colleagues. As you have seen it does not take long to incorporate new people.

Where we are on the 4th

July 4th: Where to go!


WHEN: FRIDAY, JULY 4, 2008 at 1:15, 1:45, 2:15

WHERE: Three Central Park Pedestrian Tunnels off 64th Street (between Columbus Circle and 64th Street) - Central Park West, see map.

This site specific event will be the first of many such readings by a growing group of concerned citizens organized by the project director, Jesai Jayhmes. The passages will be arranged in a choral speaking format to augment the power of the text and:

to introduce the general public to the entire document
to engage people emotionally in the struggle for independence
to alert the audience to the relevance of the document today

The project is sponsored by the Ethical Communications Committee and the Social Service Board at New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W. 64th Street,
Central Park West
