Shape Note Singers program postponed at NC Museum of History Due to the inclement weather forecast, the North Carolina Museum of History will be closed tomorrow (Sunday, Dec. 9), and we will be postponing the Triangle Shape Note Singers program. Please save the date of Sunday, Feb. 24! Thank you for your patience and flexibility; if you have any questions, please let us know. We hope to see you at future events, and at the new date for this event. And, if you'd still like to donate to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, please visit their website You can also join the Triangle Shape Note Singers at their monthly sing in Chapel Hill on Sunday, Dec. 16; or at their monthly sing in Raleigh on Sunday, Dec. 23. Stay warm, and stay safe! *** This Music of the Carolinas concert will be a bit different, as the Shape Note Singers of the Research Triangle will share this distinctive music in the Museum lobby! In the shape note singing tradtion, singers sing a cappella (without accompaniment) and sit arranged by vocal part in a “hollow square,” facing one another across the square and taking turns at leading. Shape note singing began in Protestant churches in New England in America's early years, and it survived in the rural South and became recognized as an American art form in the 1960s. Today, local singers still gather three times a month around the Triangle to share the music and fellowship of the Shape Note Sing. The Shape Note Singers meet the second Sunday of each month in Durham, the third Sunday of each month in Chapel Hill, and the fourth Sunday of each month in Raleigh. They also host an annual convention in March, drawing singers from across the state and beyond. Sacred harp singing is another name for this style, referring to vocal cords; early practitioners of this musical style viewed vocal cords as the only instrument necessary. An 1844 songbook is titled Sacred Harp, which gives the music its name and helped it spread by using shapes (triangle, circle, square and diamond) to help singers identify the four notes used in each song. A limited number of books will be available for anyone who wants to follow along. HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE This concert was originally scheduled to fall during the Museum's annual Holiday Food Drive for the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. Check out the list of the Food Bank's "Most Needed Items," and please consider participating while you're at the Museum. You can also donate to the Food Bank online - For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide $10 worth of food or five meals! Large print program notes will be available, and assistive listening devices will be available as well. Learn more about accessibility at PineCone events Although this event is free to attend, the performers are paid. Please consider making a donation to the series when you reserve your tickets. Thank you! Learn more about this event on PineCone's website Music of the Carolinas is presented in partnership by PineCone and the North Carolina Museum of History. THANK YOU to Music of the Carolinas sponsors NC Museum of History Associates and North State Bank.

When: Friday, January 25 at noon Where: Ridge Road Baptist Church Cost: FREE (Attendees bring their own lunch. Drinks and snacks provided.) Bonnie Bechard is a retired UNC-Chapel Hill administrator and vice-president of the League of Women Voters of Lower Cape Fear.  Her research into NC's school voucher program uncovered deficiencies after reviewing the curricula being used at more than 100 schools. Fundamentalist Christian schools are receiving most of the money from the state's school voucher program, but they're not providing the “sound basic education” the state Constitution guarantees to North Carolina’s children. The League's report found that “77 percent of private schools receiving vouchers are using curricula that do not comply with state standards, leaving many students unprepared for college-level coursework or careers in certain fields.” To read the entire reprot go to https://www.lwvwake.org/event-page/2019/1/25/timely-topics-school-vouchers.

       Course Description: This program is designed to introduce substance use disorder and/or mental health clinicians to the field of gender responsive substance use disorder treatment (for women). Research in substance use disorder treatment indicates that women are best served when treatment is tailored to fit their unique needs. Increased understanding of those needs, and evidence based means (interventions, techniques, ancillary services, etc.) to address them are important for improving the lives of individuals and their families. Participants will be exposed to Seeking Safety, Helping Women Recover, and A Woman’s Addiction Workbook as tools for serving the needs of women in outpatient substance use treatment settings. Participants will leave the session with a deeper understanding of their personal process in working with women, the need for gender responsive treatment, and specific tools for providing care to women that suffer from addictive disorders.   Learning objectives: Describe the evolution of gender responsive treatment. Identify biological, social, and psychological factors that are unique to women and their experience of addiction and recovery. Describe the influence of these factors on addiction treatment for women. Identify and discuss existing evidence based and promising practices. Discuss the application of presented EBP’s for participants’ clinical practice. Identify ongoing questions and challenges for the field.          Biography:    Andrea Winkler, MSW, LCSW, LCAS has emerged as an engaging and informative practice-based trainer.

Completion of UNC’s Certificate in Substance Abuse Studies provided additional specialization in a population for whom trauma is a primary co-occurring feature.
