Dimitrije Vasiljevic, a New York-based award-winning pianist and composer of Serbian nationality who is performing extensively in New York City jazz clubs, will have his debut at Carnegie Hall in March 2014.
Unique one-off line-up performing 'St Anthony' at Carnegie Hall. I think Tony will have been looking down and thinking “Manchester in New York. It seems to work so well.” I think he would have been incredibly proud that Manchester and Salford shared the stage with international artists like Philip Glass, Patti Smith and Iggy Pop. St Anthony is a prayer and poem in one. It mourns the loss of one of our city’s greatest sons and celebrates the landscape of our geography and culture

Brooklyn New York Baby Boomers and Everyone Who Loves Brooklyn Like This Page · February 12 2.12.1936 or 1940 (depends on the source) - Richard Hugh Lynch, an actor best known for portraying villains, was born in Brooklyn, one of 7 children. In 1958, he joined the Marines, served for 4 years where he made Corporal, and did a tour of the Middle East with the Sixth Fleet. His scars came from a 1967 incident in Central Park in which he set himself on fire while on a bum trip (LSD to the lay folk). Reconstructive surgery was necessary. He began his training with Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen at H.B. Studios in the Village, and later went on to train extensively with Lee Strasberg at Carnegie Hall. In 1970, he became a lifetime member of the Actors Studio and spent years in the New York theater community playing in dozens of on- and off-Broadway productions. The more notable plays were: "The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel", "The Lion in Winter", "The Devils", "The Lady from the Sea", "Action", "Live Like Pigs ...

Continuing for the sake of Beatlemaniacs out there, 5 decades ago on Tues. Feb. 11th (just 2 days after their U.S. debut on Ed Sullivan), on a snowy, blustery evening, The Beatles made their American concert debut at the Washington Coliseum in Washington D.C., playing on a boxing ring-style stage in the center of the arena. The place is now a large parking lot. On Feb. 11th this year, the cars were cleared away and a new stage erected for the well-known Beatles tribute band Beatlemania, who performed the exact same set-list (all the songs The Fab Four played that night 50 years earlier, in order) to bring the magic back to life one more time. Here's a link to USA Today's story this stop in Washington, The Beatles returned to New York for two concerts at Carnegie Hall. Now, 50 years ago today, Thursday February 13th 1964, The Beatles left New York for Miami Beach. Until then, the closest any of the lads had been to the Equator was Germany (West Germany then) (nowhere near the Equator), and none of them had ...
Today In Black History - February 13 1818 - Absalom Jones, the first African American Episcopal priest ordained in the U.S., dies. 1882 – Henry Highland Garnet dies in Liberia. Born a slave, Garnet and his family escaped to New York when he was about 9 years old. In the 1840s and decades afterward, he became a controversial figure within the abolitionist movement. His "Call to Rebellion" speech in 1843 encouraged slaves to free themselves by rising up against owners. Garnet became the first black speaker to address Congress in 1865. 1892 – The World’s Fair Colored Opera Company, with featured singer, soprano Matilda Sissieretta Jones (1869-1933), becomes the first African American group to perform at New York City's Carnegie Hall.

The Jews Gloat At the celebration of the 1917 triumph of Jewry, at Carnegie Hall in New York (N.Y. Times, 3/24/17), it was proudly told how Jacob Schiff had financed Communist propaganda spread among 50,000 Russian war prisoners in Jew-financed Japan, which sent them back to attempt putting over the 1905 Red Revolution in their Russian homeland. Not only are the agent connections of Schiff with the Japanese war against Russia hailed in his Kehillah sketch (Exhibit 214) and his agent ties chronicled elsewhere in aid of every phase of the Talmudic plan, his own words bear witness to his deeds. As the State Department communications herein show, Schiff and his Jewish cohorts were, at the time of the Carnegie Hall meeting, financing the bloody terrorists Trotsky and Lenin to finish off the job instituted and furthered under Kerensky. To further quote the 1917 N.Y. Times report: “An authority on Russian affairs, George Kennan, told of a movement by the Society of the Friends of Russian Freedom financed by Ja ...

Shortly there after, he made his Carnegie Hall debut and soon appeared in the leading opera houses in the USA such as the San Francisco, the Cincinatti Opera, the New York City Opera, and the Baltimore Opera, to name but a few of the musical cities that have acclaimed his performances. In 1981 he was invited to make his Eu ...

Today In Black History • January 5, 1869 Matilda Sissieretta Joyner Jones, opera soprano and businesswoman, was born in Portsmouth, Virginia but raised in Providence, Rhode Island. Jones began her formal study of music at the Providence Academy of Music in 1883 and in the late 1880s studied at the New England Conservatory of Music. She made her New York City debut in 1888 and made successful tours of the Caribbean that year and in 1892. On June 15, 1892, Jones became the first African American to sing at the Music Hall in New York (now Carnegie Hall). She also performed for Presidents Benjamin Harrison, Grover Cleveland, William Mckinley, and Theodore Roosevelt. By 1896, Jones found that access to most American classical concert hall was limited by her race and therefore she formed the Black Patti Troubadours, a variety act made up of singers, jugglers, comedians, and dancers. The revue was successful enough to provide Jones an income in excess of $20,000. Jones retired from performing in 1915. She died ...

QUEEN EDITTA SHERMAN - Born Edith Rinaolo in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 9, 1912. Died in New York City on November 1, 2013. She was 101 years old. She learned the art of portrait photography from her father, who had studios in New Jersey. She married Harold Sherman, a sound engineer and inventor, who was her business partner. When he became blind and later died from diabetes, she took up portrait photography full time in order to be able to bring up her five young children as a single mom. From 1949 until 2010, she lived in Studio 1208 at 881 Seventh Avenue, New York, New York 10019, one of the two towers Andrew Carnegie built alongside Carnegie Hall to provide rental income for the concert enterprise downstairs. Editta was affectionately called The Dutchess of Carnegie Hall because she reigned as the matriarch of that artists' colony of writers, actors, artists and musicians that included Mark Twain, Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, George Balanchine, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and Katherine Hepbur ...
There is a magnificent lady, with all of the beauty of blackness and black culture by the name of Marian Anderson that you’ve heard about and read about and some of you have seen. She started out as a little girl singing in the choir of the Union Baptist Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And then came that glad day when she made it. And she stood in Carnegie Hall, with the Philharmonic Orchestra in the background in New York, singing with the beauty that is matchless. Then she came to the end of that concert, singing "Ave Maria" as nobody else can sing it. And they called her back and back and back and back again, and she finally ended by singing, "Nobody knows De Trouble I Seen." And her mother was sitting out in the audience, and she started crying; tears were flowing down her cheeks. And the person next to her said, "Mrs. Anderson, why are you crying? Your daughter is scoring tonight. The critics tomorrow will be lavishing their praise on her. Why are you crying?" And Mrs. Anderson looked over wi ...

ON THIS DAY IN MUSIC December 3rd 1925, "Concerto in F," by George Gershwin, had its world premiere at New York's Carnegie Hall. Gershwin himself played the piano. 1955, Elvis Presley's first release on RCA Victor Records was announced. The first two songs ‘Mystery Train’ and ‘I Forgot to Remember to Forget’ had been purchased from Sam Phillips of Sun Records. Elvis was described by his new record company as 'The most talked about personality in recorded music in the last 10 years.' 1961, Brian Epstein invited The Beatles into his office to discuss the possibility of becoming their manager. John Lennon, Harrison and Pete Best arrived late for the 4 p.m. meeting, (they had been drinking at the Grapes pub in Matthew Street), but Paul Mccartney was not with them, because, as Harrison explained, he had just got up and was "taking a bath". 1964, The Rolling Stones had their second UK No.1 single with their version of 'Little Red Rooster'.

Other members were David Grisman, Steve Katz (later with Blues Project and Blood, Sweat and Tears), Maria Muldaur (then Maria d'Amato), Joshua Rifkin (arranger of Scott Joplin ragtime compositions), and John Sebastian (later with the Lovin' Spoonful). The Even Dozen Jug Band only existed for a short time. Their only recording was the self-titled album in January 1964 on Elektra. They made a couple of television appearances and performed several times in concert, twice at New York's Carnegie Hall.
Although Vanessa Redgrave is doing a lovely turn as Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing at the Old Vic in London, it occurs to me that New York stages are the place to see great British actors at the moment. They include Eileen Atkins and Michael Gambon (All That Fall); Harriet Walter (Julius Caesar); Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry (both in Twelfth Night, Rylance in Richard III); Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart (in Waiting for Godot and No Man's Land); Roger Rees (The Winslow Boy); Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig (Betrayal). And Alan Cumming and Ewan MacGregor are coming in the spring. And, of course, Benjamin Britten will be celebrated on his hundredth birthday in "Peter Grimes" on Nov 22 at Carnegie Hall and in subscription concerts at the New York Philharmonic starting November 21.
Lou Reed was the second songwriter, after Dylan, that I got obsessed with as a teenager. I started with Walk On The Wild Side, and quickly devoured all of the Velvet Underground as well as his solo stuff. He had a casualness to his songwriting that really influenced me. It's poetic but used plain language. He was at his best, in my opinion, when he really embraced that causal style. He was also always experimenting with new and different sounds - this was also one of his greatest strengths. Berlin, Coney Island Baby and New York are among my favorite albums; New York, to me, is a perfect album front to back. I saw him a handful of times over the years, the first time at a festival in upstate NY in 1998 and the last time a few years ago at Carnegie Hall. None of the times I saw him were very good shows - but I was always still thrilled to just see him up there. Lou was sort of eclipsed early on in my Pantheon of Songwriters by Dylan and then later by Jonathan Richman (who was hugely, massively influenced b ...

I'm looking forward to our gig in NYC this Saturday. I have so many great memories of working in Manhattan: from the Bottom Line, to Carnegie Hall, to Town Hall (with Flora), to the Beacon Theatre. My adopted hometown has always been good to me! As always, any gig in New York is a benefit for the Ulster County SPCA. My personal salary and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of all merchandise goes to the Shelter. They desperately need some new washers and dryers and with your help I hope to make their dreams come true. See you later. -SOJG
I always felt redundant and unnecessary to state to be proud of being an Italian. My father taught me better to wave flags and use rhetorical speeches to fully understand and appreciate where I am coming from. However, tonight I have to make an exception. Hearing the amazing musicians from La Scala in Milan, playing so masterfully the sublime melodies from Giuseppe Verdi's Fantasie in a private concert at MIT, made me shiver at the thought of being part of such an amazing artistic culture and country. Many thanks to the Italian Consul Giuseppe Pastorelli for inviting me and my wife to this unbelievable concert. If you are in New York, do not miss them at Carnegie Hall.

JOHN CRUZ Kanikapila in Kailua is Sat, Sep 21 at 4:00 p.m. Parking Garage by Pier 1 and Macy’s Kailua, Windward Oahu From the time he was a young boy growing up in Palolo Valley on Oahu, John Cruz knew he was destined to play music. Whether inside or outside the home, his earliest memories were filled with song. His Hawaiian grandmother had a beautiful voice and sang in church. His mom loved the Motown sound and had an extensive record collection. His dad played country music and taught John to perform live shows at a very young age. His brothers and sisters were all musically inclined and, along with numerous aunties, uncles, cousins, neighbors and friends, they have surrounded John with the gift of music for his entire life. Although John grew up in Hawaii, it wasn't until he moved to the East Coast in 1983 that he developed his own style as a singer songwriter.

Thank you all my family and friends for the warm birthday wishes. You really can make a girl feel special even if I am on the other side of the world now. So, what does having your birthday in New York mean? Well, for me, it meant waking up late and replacing breakfast and lunch with brunch of NY style bagels and lox. Then a trip to Tiffany's where my husband spoiled me by letting me walk out with 2 green boxes! Then a little stroll passed Carnegie Hall, drop into the Mac Store and FAO Schwartz (kids had a blast). Dinner at the famous Junior's Deli, followed by "Kinky Boots" the musical. Then return to Junior's for a slice of their amazing cheesecake. A midnight walk around the theatre district with my beautiful family and now finally - bed (at 1.15am). Mind you, kids are still up! What a day my family has given me!
Alice Cooper, Style and influences During an interview for the program Entertainment USA in 1986, Cooper stunned interviewer Jonathan King by stating that The Yardbirds were his favorite band of all time.[77] Perhaps King should not have been so taken aback, as Cooper had as far back as 1969 said that it was music from the mid-sixties, and particularly from British bands The Beatles, The Who, and The Rolling Stones, as well as The Yardbirds, that had the greatest influence on him.[78] Cooper would later pay homage to The Who by singing "I'm A Boy" for A Celebration: The Music of Pete Townshend and The Who in 1994 at Carnegie Hall in New York, and performing a cover of "My Generation" on the Brutal Planet tour of 2000. During an interview with Ozzy Osbourne from radio program Nights with Alice Cooper on May 22, 2007, Cooper again affirmed his debt of gratitude to these bands, and to The Beatles in particular. During their discussion, Cooper and Osbourne bemoaned the often inferior quality of songwriting co ...
How do you make Juniors, soon to be Seniors, understand the amazing honor and great accomplishment it is to be able to go sing at CARNEGIE HALL??? Last year the Falmouth High School Choir participated at a Heritage Festival in New York, their performance earned them the right to sing as part of the 2014 Carnegie Hall Festival!!! Of course it is not free, and without help from parents and the town money could be an issue, but the sad part is that many kids don't want to go because "it is going to be so much work" Really??? How do you get into these kids head and make them understand the ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY THEY HAVE! They will be singing in an amazing venue, sharing the stage with choirs from across the country, and as a director Mr. Anton Armstrong!!! They also will have a Broadway show, admission to Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty, and plenty of time to play tourist! Sad thing is that these juniors were part of the winning team!

Szymon Goldberg, a Polish-born American violinist and conductor, was born on June 1, 1909 in Włocławek, Poland.    Szymon Goldberg played the violin as a child growing up in Warsaw. In 1917 he moved to Berlin and took violin lessons with Carl Flesch. After a recital in Warsaw in 1921, and a debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in 1924 in which he played three concertos, he was engaged as concert-master of the Dresden Philharmonic from 1925 to 1929. In 1929 he was appointed concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic, but was forced by the rise of the Third Reich to leave the orchestra in 1934, despite Wilhelm Furtwängler's attempts to safeguard the Jewish members of the orchestra. He was also a member of a trio with Paul Hindemith and Emanuel Feuermann from 1930 to 1934. After 1934, he toured Europe with the pianist Lili Kraus.

Born of parents from what was then Russia (his father was born in what is today Poland and his mother was from what is modern day Lithuania) who emigrated and met in the US, he was the seventh of nine children. After attending several musical schools in his home town of Chicago, around the age of 20 he moved to New York in search of fame. On his way up he collaborated with such legendary greats as Gene Krupa, Glenn Miller, Babe Russin, Duke Ellington, and Harry James. He was the first "swing" or "jazz" musician to play Carnegie Hall and was commonly known as "The King of Swing". His orchestra was groundbreaking in that at a time of strict segregation he had black and white musicians playing together. Today would have been his 104th birthday. If you haven't figured it out by now, his name was Benny Goodman.
Getting ready to leave New York. Other than a couple of set backs our memories will be: singing on the Carnegie Hall stage, touring NY on a double decker bus in the rain, seeing Wicked and Jersey Boys and spending all of this with family and friends. I will return again some day.

Very interesting! Sent to me by my mom...Ethel Merman's obituary. February 16, 1984 OBITUARY Ethel Merman, Queen of Musicals, Dies at 76 By MURRAY SCHUMACH Ethel Merman, the musical-comedy star whose belting voice and brassy style entertained Broadway and movie audiences for 50 years, was found dead in her Manhattan apartment yesterday. Miss Merman, who was 76 years old, had undergone surgery to remove a brain tumor last April. The Medical Examiner's office reported yesterday that she died of natural causes. The singer's booming voice was first heard on a Broadway stage in 1930 when she brought down the house singing ''I Got Rhythm'' in the Gershwin musical ''Girl Crazy.'' Her last major appearance in New York was in 1982, when she took part in a Carnegie Hall Benefit Concert. Miss Merman's most memorable shows included Cole Porter's ''Anything Goes'' and ''Dubarry Was a Lady,'' Irving Berlin's ''Annie Get Your Gun'' and the Jule Styne-Stephen Sondheim musical ''Gypsy,'' which she considered her best.

The brothers began studying violin at ages 8 and 7, respectively, and eventually studied at the Juilliard School. In 2005, the duo entered and won a talent competition at the Apollo Theatre in New York. Their victory on Showtime at the Apollo led to media attention and appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Today Show with Katie Couric, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Around the same time the duo showcased their talents at Carnegie Hall and performed for President George W. Bush at The White House. On January 8, 2006, the Escobars performed their song Thunder at the debut of the redesigned Cadillac CTS at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Nuttin' But Stringz performed after a classical string quartet. General Motors Corp. executives used the two performances as an analogy, to demonstrate that what used to be good enough (the quartet) needs to be reinvigorated (N.B.S).[citation needed] A video for "Thunder" is also featured on the website for Jack's Big Music Show on Noggin. ...
Today in Irish history -- 2012 - Singer Bridie Gallagher passes away at age 87. Known professionally as the 'Girl from Donegal', over a 50-year career she played everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall in London to Carnegie Hall in New York and Sydney Opera House. Born in Creeslough, Co. Donegal, Bridie Gallagher made her home in Belfast almost 60 years ago and it was there she was discovered by a Decca talent scout in 1956. Her first single for them - A Mother's Love's a Blessing - was an instant hit and within a few short years she was performing on Sunday Night at the London Palladium. The late 50s and 60s saw tens of thousands of Irish people emigrating. In Britain, America and Australia, Bridie had ready-made audiences who packed out the venues she played. In one particularly memorable show at the Albert Hall mounted police had to be used to hold back fans who blocked the surrounding streets.
UPDATE AND FINAL WORD ON THE LATE, GREAT JAYNE CORTEZ (1934-2012) Jayne Cortez, Jazz Poet, Dies at 78 By Margalit Fox January 3, 2013 New York Times Jayne Cortez, a poet and performance artist whose work was known for its visceral power, its political outrage and above all its sheer, propulsive musicality, died on Dec. 28 in Manhattan. She was 78. Her death, at Beth Israel Medical Center, was from heart failure, her son, the jazz drummer Denardo Coleman, said. One of the central figures of the Black Arts Movement — the cultural branch of the black power movement that flourished in the 1960s and ’70s — Ms. Cortez remained active for decades afterward, publishing a dozen volumes of poetry and releasing almost as many recordings, on which her verse was seamlessly combined with avant-garde music. She performed on prominent stages around the world, including, in New York, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the Museum of Modern Art and Carnegie Hall. Ms. Cortez’s work was beyond catego ...

The old story goes like this: a man carrying a violin case is walking up Seventh Avenue in New York when he spots another guy with a violin case. He stops and asks him “excuse me, how do I get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice!” comes the answer.

Happy Birthday Eddie Palmieri Latino music legend and nine-time Grammy winner. Eddie Palmieri was born on December 15, 1936, his parents had migrated to New York from Ponce, Puerto Rico, in 1926, and settled down in the South Bronx, a largely Hispanic neighborhood. Both he and his older brother, the late Charlie Palmieri, were born in New York. When he was only 8 years old, he would musically accompany Charlie and together they entered and participated in many talent contests. Palmieri continued his education in the city's public school system where he was constantly exposed to music, specifically jazz. He took piano lessons and performed at Carnegie Hall when he was 11 years old. His main influences were Thelonious Monk and McCoy Tyner. He was inspired by his older brother and was determined to someday form his own band - something he achieved in 1950, when he was just 14. During the 1950s, Palmieri played in various bands, including Tito Rodríguez's. In 1961, Palmieri formed the band Conjunto La Perfec ...

Goodman's 1938 Carnegie triumph recreated The famous 1938 Carnegie Hall concert by Benny Goodman and his orchestra is to be recreated in full in the New Year, to mark the event's 75th anniversary Benny Goodman posterIn the 1930s, Benny Goodman blazed a trail as one of the most exciting and dynamic swing bandleaders of his time. In January 1938, this culminated in one of his most memorable performances with his orchestra at Carnegie Hall, New York. The crowd was whipped into a frenzy with Gene Krupa's jungle-beat drums, Harry James on trumpet, and Lester Young featuring on sax – not to mention Goodman himself with some of his most inspired clarinet solos. Luckily the concert itself was recorded, and became the first ever double album released in 1950 (Goodman having misplaced the recordings until then). It also became one of the fastest selling albums, with over a million copies sold soon after its release. The concert in full is being re-enacted in January 2013, on its 75th anniversary, by Pete Long and ...

WAY TO GO ATHEIST... You really prove your lack of compassion for the needy. So much for your belief that you're sooo good without God. Moanalua High School students in the award-winning orchestra have proudly raised $200,000 over the last 6 years through their annual holiday concert. These students, who have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York three times, don’t keep the money to buy new instruments, travel abroad or help their school. Instead, they send $30,000 they raise every year overseas to a well-known charity, Mercy Ships, which is current housing American doctors in Africa on a medical mission. These doctors help the poorest of residents – some who have never seen a doctor – with urgent medical and dental needs. It is the students’ gift to the world during the holidays and their chance to make difference for others in need. The seventh annual fundraiser was set for this weekend, and students have been practicing for months to ensure their performance was perfect. But an atheist activis ...

The anecdote of the day! Andrew Carnegie the great philanthropist has his name associated with many institutions that he helped fund, including the wonderful performing venue Carnegie Hall in New York and Carnegie Mellon University. He was a generous patron of the New York Philharmonic Society as well, and in the orchestra's early years Carnegie meet the orchestra's annual deficits. One year the secretary of the society came as usual to Carnegie's mansion, requesting $60,000. Carnegie hesitated before he signed the check. He thought for a moment and said, "No, I've changed my mind. Surely there are other people who like music enough to help with their own money." Insisting that the secretary go out and raise half of the necessary amount, he promised to match it with the other half when this had been done. The following day the secretary returned to the Carnegie mansion, announcing that he had raised the requisite money. Carnegie was a little surprised how quickly this had been accomplished and he commend ...

The splendid new film, "Orchestra in Exile," tells the story of Bronislaw Huberman's efforts to create an all-Jewish orchestra in Palestine during the Nazi era. The film mentions that his Stradivarius violin was stolen, but doesn't give the details. Here's what Wikipedia writes: "On February 28, 1936, while giving a concert at Carnegie Hall, Huberman switched the Stradivarius 'Gibson' with his newly acquired Guarnerius violin, leaving the Stradivarius in his dressing room during intermission. It was stolen by a New York nightclub musician, Julian Altman, who kept it for the next half century. Huberman's insurance company, Lloyd's of London, paid him $US30,000 for the loss in 1936. "Altman went on to become a violinist with the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C. and performed with the stolen Stradivarius for many years. In 1985, Altman made a deathbed confession to his wife, Marcelle Hall, that he had stolen the violin. Two years later, she returned it to Lloyd's and collected a finder's fee o ...
Yesterday, I took New Jersey Transit to Princeton to see and hear Barbara Cook on her birthday tour. I also attended the June 15 performance at the Kennedy Center and the October 18 performance at Carnegie Hall. In this tour, Barbara brings new material to her act. My favorite is "The Nearness of You." I don't understand why I was among the younger members of her audience, but by far the oldest passenger on the train back to New York. I guess everyone else traveled to the theatre by hearse.

If you read my other post about Carnegie Hall and Brooklyn Tabernacle, you may have surmised that Don & I are in New York. We are at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. We should be fine. We talked to one lady who had been evacuated from where she lived, and she chose to come here. Also, people have been moved here from the Marriott in the financial district. Many things closed at 5:00, but we can look out our window and still see people out milling around. We chose to go ahead to the Museum of Modern Art this aft. since we probably won't be able to go tomorrow. Also, we had tickets to see the 911 Memorial tomorrow, and we won't be able to do that. Hopefully, things will be back to normal by Tuesday.

(New York, New York, October 3, 2012)— Carnegie Hall unveiled a specially crafted Breguet tourbillon clock in its Morse Lobby prior to the concert, as part of a new partnership with the historic watch company.

Had a remarkable weekend in Atlanta celebrating my aunt’s 90th birthday with my sister and wonderful cousins, who treated us like royalty. We also managed to get to historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where MLK had been co-pastor: they were playing a recording of one of his sermons from the sanctuary and sitting out in the pews, you could really get a sense of what it must have been like to hear this amazing man in that same space. I had to miss Saturday night’s Symphony Ball -- a first in decades of covering them -- but Chicago Symphony Orchestra Music Director Riccardo Muti himself exonerated me, wishing my aunt a Happy Birthday and noting that there would be other Symphony Balls. I did make it back in time to head to jail with Muti, bass-baritone Eric Owens, tenor Raul Melo and the CSO brass quintet, who all gave an inspiring concert to lift the spirits of the inmates Sunday afternoon. Muti and the CSO are heading to New York where they will present three programs to open the Carnegie Hall concert sea ...

Hey--just posted the 200th column on my web site--and thought this piece on Gallagher-Bluedorn acoustics might be of interest, especially in light of the WCFSO's opening concert tomorrow night with Gabriel Kahane. David Kahn was the chief acoustician for GBPAC, and I interviewed him in April of 2000. This piece was published on April 22, twelve years ago. I talked at length over lunch last week with David Kahn, the principal acoustician for UNI's new Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. He's a warm, bright-eyed man in his forties, born and raised in New York City, who has designed acoustics for literally dozens of auditoriums and Performing Arts centers around the world. Kahn came to acoustics in a roundabout way; he studied both music (as a trumpeter) and mechanical engineering as an undergraduate, and in 1991 founded "Acoustic Dimensions," an acoustics consulting firm with offices in New York, Dallas, and England. Kahn mentioned that he would love to perform in Gallagher-Bluedorn's Great Hall. "I ...

Happy New Year! The Hottest Ticket in Town By Larry Levin p.32 Village Voice, September 21, 1982. In the five years since I left my native Texas, I hadn't set foot inside a synagogue. Coming from the Lone Star State, where every year we broke the Yom Kippur fast with a big Bar-B-Q at the rabbi's ranch, I considered my move to New York enough of a religious act to last a lifetime. But this year I committed a heinous crime against my parents and the Jewish people -- I quit my job. To redeem myself, I figured I had three options: get married, hunt Nazis in South America, or attend High Holy Days services. But each option had its drawbacks. First, my current girlfriend thinks Rosh Hashanah is Hebrew for "Alternate Side of the Street Parking Suspended." Which meant marriage was out. Second, my Spanish is almost nonexistent save for the phrases "muy bien" and "Donde esta Nazis?" So I decided to take a shot at services. But New York is not an easy place for the budget worshiper. When it comes to the High H ...

Thank you so much my dear friends! Your kind words and prayers mean more than you know. Yesterday morning, as I was about to head back to Milwaukee, I told Dad that I loved him, and that he should let go if he needed to. Not more than thirty miles down the road, I was called back home. It seems Dad took my advice. My father passed away in the comfort of his home, right where he wanted to be. He is no longer in pain. Jerry R.

Some interesting news! US promoter makes millions with pay-to-play amateur concerts in top venues Miriam Kreinin Souccar, Crains New York Business, 5/20/12 Distinguished Concerts International New York has come up with an innovative way to produce Classical Music concerts at prestigious venues like Carnegie Hall without relying on corporate sponsors and other donors. The 5-year-old company rents the hall and hires the headline conductor and the orchestra, but builds its choirs by auditioning hundreds of amateur singers from around the world who are willing to pay a fee for the experience of performing in one of New York's top venues. The result: high-quality concerts that win rave reviews and typically sell out. "In lieu of a grant coming from a major bank or the National Endowment for the Arts, we look to our performers to be mini-sponsors," said Iris Derke, co-founder of DCINY. "In return, they get to walk away with an experience, like a fantasy baseball team." The for-profit company, founded in 2007 by ...
Charles Dutoit made his Philadelphia Orchestra farewell performance Hall Friday a send off to be remembered! The NY Times review today critiqued it ever more eloquently than I could, but it was a great moment & left a lasting good impression. The Chopin Piano Concerto was delicate and nuanced, and the Ravel "Daphnis & Chloe" sparkled and delighted at every turn. I enjoyed comparing the innovations in the musical language Ravel employed to the bold and cutting edge paintings of Matisse & Picasso from the same period I'd just seen at the Gertrude Stein exhibit Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.

Columnist James Ahearn of New Jersey's Bergen Record has a great column today on, of all things, the stagehands at New York City's top Performing Arts venues such as Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. These are not highly skilled or technical jobs but take a gander at how much they are paid:

Going to see the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York tonight!!
This is the first review I found of last night's HSO concert at Carnegie Hall. Its from a paper in Birmingham Alabama. Their orchestra is playing later this week in the festival New YoRK -- The second annual Spring for Music Festival opened Monday at the convergence of music and politics, the Houston Symphony and conductor Hans Graf offering a thought-provoking look at the 20th century's most conflicted and enigmatic composer, Dmitri Shostakovich. A look at the programs planned for the New York festival promises such adventures each night, with premieres and seldom-heard modern scores dominating six consecutive orchestra concerts at Carnegie Hall. The first show was a jump-start into a week of hard-core listening that promises to involve the mind as much as the ear. Shostakovich's fierce battle with Soviet censors – the threats, the artistic concessions, the accusations of “formalism” – would not, on the surface, appear to grounds for a humorous romp, but “Anti-Formalist Rayok,” a mini-dram ...

Just a week after performing two historic concerts at New York City’s Carnegie Hall and a month after having his beautiful baby, Blue Ivy, with wife Beyonce, it seems Jay is already hard at work on his next musical project. At least that’s what The Roots drummer Questlove wants you to believe.
Loving the blessings of God. We are in NYC meeting with a client of mine from 2009 to paint another piece for her NYC apartment. It is cooler here than weather.com stated, but we made it after a trip to Bloomingdale's to purchase a long sleeve shirt and sweater for Poppa Bear. New York has such great memories. Love remembering when Jennifer was here for her internship with Vera Wang, the trip with Ashley and Jennifer here for fun one year, the trip to watch U-High sing in the Carnegie Hall, the Christmas when we all were stuck here until the 23rd of Dec. because of snow, and when Wesley first understood how magical Santa is in this city. Most of all, I am blessed to be back with the Love of MY LIfe !! New York with him is so awesome !!!

There's a story, perhaps apocryphal, about legendary pianist Arthur Rubinstein who was approached in the street near New York's world-famous Carnegie Hall by someone who asked, "Pardon me sir, how do I get to Carnegie Hall?" To which Rubinstein replied, "Practice, practice, practice!"
