No Friday Night Live in January

The Carlisle Youth Commission would like to remind everyone that there will not be a Friday Night Live in the month of January. Friday Night Live will return in February with more great music, games, and activities for sixth, seventh and eighth graders. In the meantime, the CYC wishes the youth of Carlisle and their families peace and good will for the rest of 2001 and beginning of 2002.

Winter yoga classes offered in Union Hall

A winter session of yoga is being offered by Karen Verrill on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at Union Hall in the First Religious Society Church. Classes begin on Tuesday, January 8, and will meet from 9:05 a.m. to 10:25 a.m. A Tuesday evening class is also offered from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. All classes will run for eight weeks. Kripalu Yoga is a wonderful combination of stretching, breathing techniques, postures and relaxation. Yoga teaches us about body and breath awareness, self-compassion, and inward focus in a non-competitive environment. A regular practice helps reduce stress, boost energy, increase flexibility and calms the mind.

Register in person at the first class. Enrollment is $80 for one class per week, or $130 for two classes per week. Drop- in students are welcome and newcomers are invited to attend a complimentary class. Call Karen at 1-978-369-7294 for further information.

Christmas carols on the Carlisle Green

Everyone is invited to sing Christmas Carols at the Christmas Tree with wind instrument players of all ages on the Carlisle Town Green on Christmas Eve, Monday December 24, between the church services. This promises to be a cold one so we have antifreeze ready for the valves and slides.

Musicians should be ready to play at 6:15 p.m. as people emerge from the First Religous Society service. There will be time to walk over to the Congregational musical service at the Corey Auditorium at 7:15 p.m.

Arcturus Chamber Ensemble returns

The Arcturus Chamber Ensemble continues its second season in Carlisle with a concert at the First Religious Society on the Sunday after Christmas, December 30, at 7 p.m. Musicians from Harvard, Rice, Juilliard, the Manhattan School, and New England Conservatory will join their friend Sarah Darling of Carlisle to perform works from several different periods, including a world premiere. Prokofiev's whimsical "Overture On Hebrew Themes" will open the program, followed by Mozart's "Quartet in D," K. 575. Sarah's fellow student David Salvage will be among those premiering his new work "Four Ascensions," a lyrical clarinet trio composed specifically for this ensemble. Mendelssohn's brilliant "Viola Quintet in B-Flat, op. 87" closes the program. Admission, like all the best things in life, is free and following the performance there will be a reception with the artists in Union Hall. For more information, call the Darlings at 1-978-369-1475.

Carlisle ladies spring tennis league

Carlisle women who are interested in trying out for openings in our local spring league (April-June) should call Bobby Lyman: 1-978-369-6185, or email at Substitutes will also be needed in case you can not commit to a regular position. Spring league is a low-key, social competition with morning games; days depend on the level of playing.
