The association is located at 65 Water St. and is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.

Music lecture set for next week

Cellist and teacher Kristen Miller will present a free lecture on Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the First Religious Society.

“Inspired by Joy: Music With a Purpose” will focus on the concepts and materials of the Kodaly Method, which Miller employs in her work with the youth choirs at the church. The method began in Hungary with composer Zoltan Kodaly and became popular in the U.S. in the early 1970s.

Miller holds a Level III certification from the Kodaly Institute at New York University. In addition to her work with the choirs, she also teaches cello in her private studio, at the Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras and at Waring School in Beverly.

Attendees are welcome to arrive at noon with a brown-bag lunch. Dessert will be provided. The lecture will be held in the Parish Hall, 26 Pleasant St., Newburyport.
