    Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers present free concert May 10

    Friday May 10
    7:30 am - 8:30 am

    Ford Hall Ithaca College

    The Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers (DCJS) will present a pre-tour concert of Negro Spirituals at 7:30 p.m., Friday, May 10 in Ford Hall at the Ithaca College Whalen School of Music.

    The memorial concert is in honor of Ithaca hero Dorothy Cotton, the civil rights activist who served as education director for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference alongside Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. She often delivered her messages of freedom and hope through music and lived in Ithaca, N.Y., for many years.

    “The DCJS, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, Ithaca-based organization dedicated to preserving the Negro Spiritual and its themes of sorrow, despair, and hope to promote racial healing and social justice,” says Founding Director Dr. Baruch Whitehead associate professor of music education at Ithaca College.

    “We are also intent on furthering civil rights leader Dorothy Cotton’s mission of conveyed hope for freedom through music.”

    DCJS has more than 85 members, including some 20 Ithaca College voice students, who perform many of the solos, alongside community members of different ages (11 to 81), heritages and backgrounds.

    The diverse chorus performs locally and throughout the region; the singers have performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., the Clemens Center in Elmira, and in Rochester, Buffalo, Toronto, Harlem and Brooklyn. This concert kicks off a three-day tour to Goldsboro, N.C. and Washington D.C. They will perform again at the Kennedy Center in 2020.

    The program is made possible in part by a grant from the Tompkins County Tourism Program and with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.

    The concert is free with suggested donations.

EAA has approximately 900 chapters around the world, which provide activities for local aviation enthusiasts with a mission of growing participation in aviation by sharing “The Spirit of Aviation.” EAA Chapter 811, located in Ithaca, is dedicated to growing participation in aviation by sharing the ways people can get started in this fun and fulfilling recreation.

    Chapter 811 in Ithaca’s activities range from monthly gatherings, to fly-in breakfasts and barbecues, educational programs, and trips to nearby air museums and airshows. The Chapter also offers free Young Eagles airplane rides for kids between 8 and 17 years of age and Eagle Flights for adults to share our love of flying and build a stronger bond between local aviation and the public.

    Community Free Day at Cayuga Nature Center

    Saturday May 25
    10 am - 4 pm

    Cayuga Nature Center
    1420 Taughannock Blvd, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

    Enjoy complementary admission to the Museum of the Earth and Cayuga Nature Center on Saturday, May 25, during our Community Free Day!

    Our “Survivors: Up Close with Living Fossils” special exhibit is now on display at the Museum of the Earth, which features live animals and plants interspersed with their distant fossilized ancestors, plus a touch tank where you can touch live horseshoe crabs and sea stars. At the Museum of the Earth you can explore the history of our planet--how the first life evolved from the earliest creatures in the sea to the evolution of life into more complex and amazing creatures. Learn about the rise of dinosaurs and mammals, and the shaping of the very landscape of our region by enormous glaciers. Visit Steggy the Stegosaurus and Amelia the Quetzalcoatlus, and marvel at the size of the Hyde Park Mastodon and the Right Whale #2030. Hunt for fossils in our Fossil Lab and view the beautiful living corals and fish in our Coral Reef exhibit.

    The Cayuga Nature Center is alive this Spring with exhibits, live animals and programs. There are more than 30 species of live animals — from hawks and foxes to trout and turtles at the Nature Center. You can see favorites Daisy the red fox, Oakley the owl, the squirrels Buddha and MJ, Ace the red-tailed hawk, Jaws the snapping turtle, and Ichabod the turkey vulture, among many others. Outside enjoy miles of trails and our six-story tree house, and inside the Nature Center see the "Cayuga Lake: Past and Present" exhibit with its two 650-gallon aquaria, and the “Layers of Life” exhibit on forest ecology, along with other fascinating and informative displays.
