Forty-Piece Group Welcomes Students
Lincroft, NJ –Brookdale Community College announces the formation of a chorus-in-residence on the Lincroft campus. This new group is called the BROOKDALE CONCORDIA CHORALE. This chorus has been formed by inviting the Concordia Chorale to join the Brookdale community as its resident chorus. Current chorus members are now welcoming students from the BCC Voice Classes as members of the Chorale.
The Concordia Chorale has been singing the masterworks of the choral repertory since its inception in 2001. In the last 11 years the Chorale has sung 6 major oratorios by Handel, major works by Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Brahms and many other major figures of the standard repertory along with major works by contemporary composers.
The 40-voice Chorale rehearses and performs under the leadership of Cynthia & John Balme who are also adjunct professors at the College. Along with a steady schedule of performances around Monmouth County, the Chorale has sung at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.

Atlantic Highlands, NJ – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among children, between infancy and age 15, in the United States. Each child has a one in 320 chance of being diagnosed with cancer before their 21st birthday. Despite these grim statistics, less than 3 percent of federal cancer research funding goes to pediatric cancer.
This September, which is recognized nationally as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, the Borough of Atlantic Highlands, Make Some Noise: Cure Kids Cancer Foundation and the Monmouth Medical Center Foundation are raising awareness of childhood cancer and the need for critical research funding through the Go Gold for Pediatric Cancer Campaign.
During September, business districts and schools throughout Atlantic Highlands, Little Silver, Sea Bright, Ocean Township, Oakhurst, Long Branch and numerous other Monmouth County communities, as well as the Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, will display gold flags in support of the campaign. Additionally, local businesses and restaurants will be offering “Go Gold” specials in support of the campaign. On First Avenue in Atlantic Highlands, the Town and Surf Diner is donating the price of all appetizers ordered during September to the Make Some Noise Foundation. Plush Salon will be offering new customers $20 haircuts on September 30th and donating all the proceeds as well. Donation jars are on display and Go Gold bracelets are for sale at the diner as well as at Seabreeze Cleaners, IM=X Pilates and Laura’s Pancake House (Highlands). The Borough’s public and private schools are also Going Gold. Some of the schools’ activities are decorating the classroom doors in gold with prizes for the best decorations; a Poster Contest with the winning posters being displayed in the windows of Atlantic Highlands businesses; the sports’ teams wearing gold laces in the shoes; a bake sale; and the incorporation of the Go Gold theme into the lesson plans and class activities. The Atlantic Highlands LEOs will be closing out the month with a walk on the Henry Hudson Trail.
