Music and gardening are the perfect combination to counteract the dark, cold days of December. Rip Jackson, Director of Music, will give a program featuring these two of his numerous talents for the Unity Group, and guests, at their meeting on Monday, December 12th. Guests are invited to the social time and lunch, starting at 12:00 or just the program at 1:30. No reservations necessary. If your last name begins with A, B, or C, please bring a dessert, and if your last name begins with any other letter, bring a main dish, side dish or salad.
Beginning at 1:30 PM, our director of music, Rip Jackson, will give a presentation about his life in music and his passion for gardening and nature. For 15 years, Rip lived on the side of a remote mountain in Vermont. During this time, he grew vegetables, fruit and flowers on his four acre property. Rip has prepared a video presentation with many beautiful pastoral images along with a number of musical examples from his many concerts including symphonies, Broadway, organ, harpsichord, choral, and some of his own compositions. He will also give a short bio on growing up in Atlanta and how music, gardening, and nature became the center of his life. Rip will also play Christmas carols on the piano for the Unity group. Audience members can request carols that Rip will then turn into musical variations. Please come and join us in Parker Hall.
