American Cancer Society and Chevrolet Celebrate 10-Year Partnership in Fight Against Breast Cancer

While Making Strides events have gone virtual this year, Chevrolet will continue support the events at the national, regional and local level all month. Employees across the country are participating in local Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events by “walking where they are” and making donations.

On October 1, Chevrolet launched its monthlong #IDriveFor social media campaign, which encourages people to share whom they drive for using the hashtag. Chevrolet will contribute $5 for every social post (up to $220,000) on Twitter or Instagram using #IDriveFor.

Chevrolet is also showing its support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Making Strides by turning the towers of the Renaissance Center global headquarters in Detroit pink during October, displaying a pink fleet of vehicles and painting the sidewalks in front of the Renaissance Center pink.

“We are more grateful than ever for Chevrolet’s partnership, 10 years strong,” said Gary Reedy, chief executive officer of the American Cancer Society. “Cancer hasn’t stopped for COVID-19. Chevy’s continued commitment to Making Strides, ensures we can fund the future and continue the progress we have made in the fight against breast cancer through groundbreaking research, providing access to care and providing screenings for those who need it most.”

“Many things look different today than they did a year ago, but the commitment by ACS to continue the fight against breast cancer remains unwavering,” said Steve Majoros, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “Chevy is proud to continue our commitment to Making Strides with the rollout of the #IDriveFor campaign. We are excited to leverage technology to create a virtual community fueled by the shared mission of raising awareness of and financial support for breast cancer research.”

Handel and Haydn Society To Celebrate The Magic Of Vivaldi

The Magic of Vivaldi will begin streaming online Tuesday, October 13, 2020.

Continuing to deliver the historically informed performances audiences have come to expect from H+H even during this pandemic, the Handel and Haydn Society will celebrate the magic of Antonio Vivaldi with a streaming concert featuring three works from the Italian Baroque composer.

The Magic of Vivaldi will be available free, with a suggested donation of $10, through the Handel and Haydn Society website at handelandhaydn.org/streaming-concerts/. The concert will stream for registered listeners on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at 3:00 PM ET, and will be available for one month. H+H season subscribers and donors over $100 will receive additional content and early access to the performance two days before the general public.

The streaming performance will begin with Vivaldi’s operatic Cantata, “Lungi dal vago volto,” RV 680. The concert will continue with Vivaldi’s sparkling Sonata for violoncello and basso continuo No. 4 in B-flat Major, RV 45 and conclude with the energetic Trio Sonata in D Minor, La Folia, RV 63, one of Vivaldi’s earliest known and most dramatic works.

“This will be an intimate concert featuring a trio of beautiful pieces by Vivaldi, performed on the period instruments for which they were written,” said Handel and Haydn Society President and CEO David Snead. “These gems of Italian Baroque fully showcase the consummate instrumental technique for which Vivaldi was known. And they will be brought alive with H+H’s trademark virtuosic and passionate style.”

The concert will showcase four of H+H’s unrivaled principal players. H+H instrumentalists Aisslinn Nosky, violin; Susanna Ogata, violin; Guy Fishman, cello; and Ian Watson, harpsichord; will lead the performance. They will be joined by soprano Amanda Forsythe, who will sing “Lungi dal vago volto.” Highly regarded as one of the best Baroque sopranos on the scene today, Forsythe has sung with orchestras and ensembles in both the United States and Europe. She most recently performed with H+H during the 2017-2018 season, in the role of Iole in Handel’s Hercules.

The Magic of Vivaldi will begin streaming online Tuesday, October 13, 2020. Anyone wishing to view the concert is asked to register now through the Handel and Haydn Society website at handelandhaydn.org/streaming-concerts/.
