Don’t Bank on the Bomb:
Divesting from the Business of Nuclear Weapons
In 2016, the Cambridge City Council adopted a resolution urging the Cambridge Retirement System (CRS) to divest its pension funds from companies that either produce nuclear weapons, or invest in their production. This forum will address the issues confronting city government as it works to follow through on that resolution – such as the fact that the Cambridge Retirement System is one of 104 contributory retirement systems in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, is governed by a five member board, and is subject to the provisions of Massachusetts state law, not municipal control. The forum will also provide advice to individual investors on how to divest their own savings from weapons production and invest in peaceful alternatives.
2 pm — Welcome and Campaign Overview

and selected Schubert songs
For the second concert in our 2017 2018 Music for Peace series, we present an All-Schubert Evening. The music director for the series, Victor Rosenbaum, pianist and noted Schubert interpreter, has gathered a group of distinguished musicians to perform a program of music of Franz Schubert, very close to the 221st anniversary of the composer’s birth.
The featured work, the beloved “Trout” Quintet, will be preceded by some of Schubert’s most cherished songs (including the one that inspired the quintet) performed by the Marlboro Music Festival veteran, soprano Junko Watanabe, followed by the brilliant and virtuosic violin and piano duo, the Rondo in b minor (D. 895), performed by the Polish-born Boston University faculty member Klaudia Szlachta.
Joining Rosenbaum and Szlachta for the “Trout” Quintet (D. 667) will be violist Nathaniel Farny, cellist Hyun-Ji Kwon and double bass player Bebo Shiu.
