1) Carleton College is very pleased to present Havana, Cuba’s acclaimed choral music ensemble El Coro Shalom on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 8 p.m. in the Concert Hall. This not-to-be-missed performance is free and open to the public.
El Coro Shalom is on a weeklong tour in Minnesota (in addition to their appearance at Carleton, they will also perform at the Sheldon Theatre in Red Wing and at the Westminster Presbyterian Church in Minneapolis). The ecumenical choir will perform a mix of Cuban sacred and folk music.
“Cuba has very strict rules about its citizens visiting the United States, so this is a rare opportunity to experience one of Cuba’s foremost choirs,” says Lawrence Burnett, Carleton choral director and professor of music. (Source)

3) Carleton College is proud to be a Second Nature Climate Leadership award finalist for the second year in a row. Through formal adoption of its Statement of Environmental Principles, Carbon Neutrality Value Statement, and Climate Action Plan, Carleton ingrained the value of sustainability within its operations, curricular and co-curricular programs. Our 2013 video submission, “Clean Energy in our Community” highlights areas where Carleton has excelled in its commitment to campus sustainability and the American College and University President’s Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). Installation of a second wind turbine in fall 2011 reduced Carleton’s purchased electricity by 25% and its Scope 2 emissions by 18%. Carleton’s electric vehicle charging station is the first of its kind in our county. Student sustainability assistants champion many campus initiatives related to waste reduction, energy conservation, and sustainable food systems—including a student organic farm which sells produce directly to the campus food service provider. And Carleton’s curriculum includes a popular Environmental Studies major and more than thirty courses related to sustainability. Carleton College is proud to model these sustainable practices in our community while preparing graduates to confront the most challenging environmental issues of our time. (Source)
