Participants will learn how to recognize suicidal thinking, reach out and offer support to others contemplating suicide, obtain help when suicidal thoughts are present, and access local and national suicide prevention and intervention resources. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, and related issues.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

This internationally acclaimed vocal and instrumental ensemble from Cologne, Germany, performs a program highlighted by works by the 12th-century German nun, composer, and religious visionary Hildegard von Bingen. "This wasn't soulless chanting, this was singing, in clear, effortlessly resonant voices that sent an electric charge through the chapel's vast well of air," says a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel review. "The words blossomed in the air as they rose from the mouths of the singers…time stood still and a thousand years of music melted away."
7:30 p.m., St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 306 N. Division. Tickets $35 & $45 (members, $35; students, $10) in advance at AcademyOfEarlyMusic.org, Nicola's Books (2513 Jackson), & by phone, and at the door. 528-1838.
