About Jeanné Brown:

Feed your senses with both concert and cuisine! Come hear Soprano Jeanné Brown and piano accompanist Lucy Banner perform works by Cole Porter and Giacomo Puccini.

Be transported to April in Paris! The reception menu will feature classic French cuisine, prepared by award winning Chef Roland’s Catering.

The event is a musical benefit to support the outreach, creativity, and inclusivity of Healthsigns GAPS Spiritual Life Center in Yarmouth Port.

Acclaimed soprano Jeanné Brown has appeared as featured soloist with symphony orchestras throughout the United States and Europe. Her career highlights include the national and international tour of Houston Grand Opera’s production of Porgy and Bess and leading roles in premiere performances of Zabette and The Opera Singer.

Picture it. Paris. 1932. New York born lyricist (and renowned social activist with a tenacious commitment to social justice) Yip Harburg has just written the lyrics for “April in Paris.” Four years earlier in 1928, Cole Porter’s first musical hit, “Paris,” opened on Broadway.

Fill your gaps!

What are gaps?  Openings and shortfalls, yet gaps are where we can experience the grace of God, sacred spaces where new life waits.  GAPS Ministries is a mission of Healthsigns Spiritual Life Center on Cape Cod, partnering with individuals and congregations.  GAPS Ministries especially welcomes persons healing from loss, seekers, ministers, artists, LGBTQ persons.

GAPS ministry was launched a year ago as a new face of Healthsigns Center, Inc. that emphasizes its identity as a “spiritual life center.” At Healthsigns we feel that there are gaps in faith formation and expression as well as gaps for many in our society who are marginalized, alienated from traditional religious institutions, or desire a more contemplative and communal faith experience. Our GAPS ministry is our prayerful team effort to help fill and transform these gaps through Gatherings that cultivate deep community, inclusion, and celebration, through the Arts that encourage creativity, play, response to beauty, through Praxis which allows for receiving the divine through faith, study, action, and through Sabbath which restores us through rest, prayer, and discernment.
