Opera Great and Multi–Grammy Winner, Renée Fleming visits Wartburg

Mount Vernon, NY, August 13, 2018 – Wartburg, Westchester’s premier provider of comprehensive residential and healthcare services for seniors, hosted the Tony-nominated Broadway star of Carousel, Renée Fleming. Wartburg President & CEO, David J. Gentner, the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function Executive Director Dr. Concetta Tomaino, Wartburg board member, Ulrich J. Rosa, and other senior staff met with Ms. Fleming in an effort to highlight the importance of music and arts on Wartburg’s campus.

“It was a joy to visit Wartburg – with the natural beauty of the campus and comprehensive care, its residents must feel at ease and at home.” Fleming said. “Understanding that integrating the arts greatly enhances quality of life and provides many cognitive and social benefits is especially powerful. I look forward to following the groundbreaking work of the Institute of Music and Neurologic Function, led by Dr. Connie Tomaino, as it continues the scientific exploration of the power of music therapy to awaken, stimulate, and heal the brain.”

While at Wartburg, Ms. Fleming visited the Adult Day Services program and was greeted by registrants singing as piano music filled the room. Additionally, she learned about the innovative music therapy services offered by the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (IMNF) and Wartburg’s award-winning, internationally recognized arts-based therapy program, Creative Aging & Lifelong Learning. She also visited Wartburg’s Outpatient Center to hear about innovative programs using music to improve mobility and speech impairments.

IMNF Executive Director and Co-Founder, Dr. Concetta M. Tomaino said, “It was an honor to have Ms. Fleming visit IMNF at its new home at Wartburg. We are so grateful for her advocacy of the importance of music and brain health and happy she was able to see our work first hand.”

Ms. Fleming is a world renowned Soprano and four-time Grammy Award winner. In 2013, then President Obama awarded her the National Medal of Arts, America's highest honor for an individual artist. Ms. Fleming is a longtime advocate for the transformative power of music, including its therapeutic uses for individuals with neurologic issues. In 2016, she initiated a partnership between the National Institute for Health and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts focusing on the intersections of music and the brain and is a spokesperson for the American Music Therapy Association.

Wartburg President, David J. Gentner shared, “Wow, what a thrill to welcome a legend to the campus. Ms. Fleming’s beliefs about the value of music and the arts in society are well documented so we were delighted that she would find the time to visit with Dr. Tomaino.”
Fleming’s visit ended with President Gentner reading a proclamation making Ms. Fleming an honorary member of the Wartburg family.

Wartburg, located in Westchester County, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services. Unlike conventional retirement communities, Wartburg provides a wide range of services to both residents living on its beautiful 34-acre campus and people in their own homes.

Wartburg also provides caregiver support at every stage with an array of options to find the level of care that considers the whole family. Most recently, Wartburg was named one of the "Best Nursing Homes in New York State" by U.S. News & World Report for the eighth consecutive year in 2018.

Kathy Henkel of Sign of the Silver Birch Music to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2018 / — The classical composer and orchestral conductor Witold Lutosławski once said, ‘When you write music, the most important thing is to write something that you like. If you don't write a piece you like yourself, nobody will like the piece. But if you write a piece that you like, at least one person in the world will like it, and probably some other people will like it, too.”

For many years, Kathy Henkel worked behind the scenes in music. She served as scriptwriter-producer for classical radio station KUSC-FM in Southern California, music researcher at Paramount Pictures, a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic administrative staff, as well as program annotator for numerous local music ensembles for more than two decades.

But for 40 years Henkel has also been a composer of instrumental chamber music and art songs for voice and piano or harp. Now 75, Henkel currently devotes her time to her music publishing company Sign of the Silver Birch, where she combines her two passions, composing and traveling.

“For classical composers it's always difficult to get your music out there,” says Henkel. “All of my friends have done it a different way. I decided I wanted to meet the musicians and the performers in person, so I exhibit and sell my pieces at music conferences around the USA.”

Henkel composes a lot of music for wind instruments often featuring double reeds, like bassoon and English horn.

“Each piece is different,” says Henkel. “I consider the instruments involved, requests of performers, and situation. Does the piece need to be three or thirty minutes long? Am I trying to create a mood, tell a story, paint a picture in sound? A piece needs forward momentum, but it also needs to breathe. Each note is there for a reason.”

Henkel first began composing in earnest when she was 16, resolving to write the great American musical. Henkel’s works have since been performed across the country, as well as in England, Italy, Austria, Slovenia, Canada and Mexico.

“I always knew I wanted to create things,” says Henkel. “I've actually been fooling around with music since I was eight years old. I had a piano teacher who encouraged that and sent my music off to the lady who wrote my beginning piano books. I still have a letter in my piano bench from this lady saying to ‘keep up the good work and continue creating.’”

Adds Henkel: “Trust your ear and write from the heart and soul. That’s what counts.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Kathy Henkel in an interview on August 20th at 3pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

Dominic Champion. A young Poet, Hip-Hop Pop artist from Brighton, Releases 'All in One'

A lot of developments have happened over the last two decades in the scene known as Spoken Word.

BIRMINGHAM, WEST MIDLANDS, UNITED KINGDOM, August 13, 2018 / — A lot of developments have happened over the last two decades in the scene known as Spoken Word. Performance poetry has become a big stable in the western entertainment scene not least here in the UK. The market is alive with young, talented, articulate wordsmiths who lament about the world they see around them, warts. These orators speak for the current generation in a way that is palatable for the baying audience. Mike Skinner from The Streets is perhaps the most notable of these Street Poets having successfully captured the hopes, dreams, clubbing experience and frustrations of the back-end of Generation X. The timing was perfect, and millions gorged themselves on his quirky adventures, thoughts and philosophies. They couldn’t get enough.

Welcome to the scene, an up-and-coming artist by the name of Dominic Champion. A young Poet, Hip-Hop Pop artist from sunny, seaside town of Brighton, East Sussex, whose love of music began after hearing the opus that is ‘The Wall’ by Pink Floyd and Orson Well’s masterpiece radio broadcast ‘The War of the Worlds’ , which literally had listeners quaking in their boots, terrified that an actual alien invasion was taking place in the early 20th Century in real time. A few years development later, it was Eminem’s behemoth Hip Hop track ‘Stan’ that inspired Dominic to choose a similar creative direction in his life. Add to this, legends like Kanye West with Dizzee Rascal and you have a decent heritage to fall back on.

The track itself is upbeat and very drum-heavy. The B-boy influence is plain as day! Got a mixture of vibes from Run DMC, Stereo MCs, maybe Early Beastie Boys too. Definitely one for the commercial markets. I can see this being blasted out in a huge summer pop festival somewhere. I catchy there’s no doubt about it and I particularly like the way it’s not trying to be something that it isn’t. Its uplifting. It’s high energy. It’s positive. It’s infectious…

It’s Defcon One

It’s Dominic Champion.

Release date 11th August 2018. Go get it!
