OC Health Cancer Screening Presentation

OC Medical Consultants will be at Concordia to educate residents about Hereditary Cancer Screening. This screening tests for over 50 types of hereditary cancers. Through Hereditary Cancer Screening you can learn if your unique DNA is predisposed to many specific types of cancers and reveal if there is a high risk of cancer to your family. This knowledge will allow you to take charge of your health through proactive lifestyle changes, preventative measures, and focused medical care for yourself and your family. It’s a legacy of information that can be passed down through generations. Complimentary coffee and doughnuts will be provided. This test is of no cost to you, your insurance will be billed if you are a candidate. Come and learn if you can help yourself and/or your family members in maintaining good health!

Active Minds presents “Kashmir”

Since the formation of India and Pakistan in 1947, both countries have fought over the region known as Kashmir. Containing a Muslim majority, but ruled by Hindu dominated India, Kashmir has been the trigger of two separate wars between India and Pakistan, and even drawn China into the conflict. Add to the mix, the nuclear arsenal of both countries and it’s not difficult to see the potential flashpoint that Kashmir represents in the region. Join Active Minds as we explore Kashmir and seek to understand its pivotal role in South Asia. RSVP to be a part of this event in your building’s book by Wednesday, May 1.

Associate conductor Christopher Dragon leads your Colorado Symphony in a weekend celebration of film score composers and those who influenced them. Herrmann’s ingenious use of strings conveys a “black and white sound” on his suite from Psycho, which mirrors the black and white images of Hitchcock’s haunting cinematic thriller. Ravel, who heavily influenced future generations of film composers, originally wrote Mother Goose as a piano duet but later revised and expanded the original work into an orchestrated piece. The program is capped by the legendary Danny Elfman, who composed the scores for treasured films such as Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Good Will Hunting. Brilliant soloist Sandy Cameron performs the Colorado premiere of Elfman’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, “Eleven Eleven,” a piece she helped debut in 2017. HERMANN’S Suite from Psycho, RAVEL’S Mother Goose (complete ballet) will also be performed! $45.10 will be charged for your ticket in Boettcher. If you cancel and we cannot find a replacement, you will be responsible for $45.10. If you cancel within 24 hours of the event, you will also be responsible for a $5 cancellation fee; $10 if it is a 2 van event. Please sign up in the Birch dining room to be a part of this event.
