Though their buildings are in Norwalk, Temple Shalom and St. Matthew Church include many parishioners from Westport.
Plenty of choral members too.
Last month — for the institutions’ Interfaith Thanksgiving service — Westporter Martin Gitlin and his daughter Kayla (Staples High School Class of 2015) produced a virtual choir video.
“Let There be Peace on Earth” was conducted by Temple Shalom’s Alice Lipson. She’s revered in Westport for her years as a Staples and Long Lots music teacher.
Whether it’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah — or any other day — this is music, and a message, worth hearing.
