13th New York Turkish Film Festival May 16-25


New York, New York (PRWEB) May 14, 2014

The Moon and Stars Project, the arts & culture program of The American Turkish Society, is proud to present the 13th New York Turkish Film Festival. The festival will be held on May 16 – 25, 2014 at the School of Visual Arts Theatre. This years festival will build upon the success of A Space Between: A Panorama of Cinema in Turkey, a major retrospective of cinema from Turkey that featured twenty-nine films from 1958 to the present, which was co-presented by The Moon and Stars Project and The Film Society of Lincoln Center in 2012. This year, the film festival is made possible by its signature sponsor, Chobani, LLC, maker of Americas No. 1-selling Greek Yogurt brand, among other contributors.

Turkeys cinema is as rich and complex as is its society, history, and culture, and film opens a unique door to understanding this inspiring country. Believing in the power of cinema to bridge cultures, The American Turkish Society offers this valuable program to a growing audience each year, while also supporting and promoting the filmmakers of Turkey. This years festival will screen a selection of nine remarkable feature films, including two inspiring documentaries, and two collections of short films. The selected films address diverse themes such as poverty in the neighborhoods of Istanbul that have been subjected to gentrification, romance and human connection that transcend national borders, and identity issues concerning immigrant children.

Opening night kicks off on Friday, May 16 with the New York premiere of the visually stunning Butterflys Dream (2013) directed by Ylmaz Erdoan, Turkeys Oscar nominee for 2013. Mert Frat, one of the lead actors in the movie, will be present in person for a Q&A session after the screening. On the following day, tickets to either of the screenings, Yozgat Blues or Ships, include admission to the New York Turkish Film Festival Reception in the lobby of the SVA Theater from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 17. The director of Yozgat Blues, Mahmut Fazl Cokun, as well as the director of Ships, Elif Refi, will be joining in person for Q&A sessions following their respective movies.

In addition to the seven other feature films, the festival will also feature two documentaries followed by panel discussions: My Child, an ambitious documentary by Can Candan, which sensitively explores the difficulties faced by families with LGBT children, and Girls of Hope, by Ayeg

Panama City Beach FL Hosts Successful Country Music Festival

Panama City Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2011

Panama City Beach tourism officials report that Some 20,000 people assembled in Frank Brown Park to enjoy the Fun Never Sets Country Music Festival. The 2-day festival was organized to encourage travel to Panama City FL, and provide a boost to hotels, like the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort leading up the quieter fall season. Headline acts included two of country musics most popular names, Miranda Lambert and Jason Aldean.

Initially, tickets were only available through official lodging partners, such as the Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort, who sold hundreds of tickets as part of room packages for the weekend. Many guests we spoke to had never visited Panama City Beach before said Patrick Hazzard, General Manager of the Sandpiper. We were surprised by the number of people already planning to return.

Musical performances preceded both headline acts, including Justin Moore and Randy Rogers Band for Lambert, and Corey Smith and The Dirt Road Drifters for Aldean. People traveled to Panama City Beach from all over the country to see the concerts, including Colorados Jason Wickham who remarked, “It was wild and crazy. We were right out by the stage!

Funding for the concert series came in the form of a $ 1.3 million BP marketing grant. “All the revenues that were generated are going to go into helping [Panama City Beach Fl] do additional programs and events”, said Dan Rowe, President/CEO of the Panama City Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau.

As expected, the Country Music Fest was a relatively incident-free success. According to Panama City Beach Police Chief Robert Harding, “Our biggest concern was traffic and parking and neither of those were a problem”.

“I think everyone who went out to Frank Brown Park had a great time and talking to our lodging partners it accomplished our goal in being able to increase a lot of interest and brought a lot of folks to Panama City Beach in September,” according to Rowe.

The concert series comes at a time when Panama City Beach council members are discussing plans to erect an amphitheater at nearby Aaron Bessant Park, allowing more concerts to be held in the future. The $ 2.6 million proposal is not without its critics, with some local residents citing noise, traffic, trash, and even threats to endangered species as concerns. However, the overall consensus seems to be overwhelmingly positive, with the majority of residents believing the amphitheater will be an asset to Panama City Beach.

The Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort is a family-friendly Panama City Fl Hotel. Known as the Fun Place the Sandpiper is committed to value; offering so many activities, amenities and entertainment that guests never have to leave during their vacation.

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 20, 2011

Be there as renowned musicians from all over the world gather in Fez — Morocco’s spiritual capital. Sahara Soul Travel has created a 10-day ground travel package from June 3 to June 12, 2011, beginning and ending in Casablanca, with private, daily sight-seeing tours in air-conditioned luxury vehicles with English speaking drivers for eight evenings of festival performances in Fez, Morocco’s ancient holy city.

The Fez Festival of World Sacred Music is widely regarded as one of the world’s premi

Tanglewood Jazz Festival: World-Class Jazz in a World-Class Setting

(PRWEB) July 24, 2004

PRWEB) July 24, 2004 — The Boston Symphony Orchestra will present its annual Labor Day Weekend Tanglewood Jazz Festival to be held September 3-5 at the Orchestra’s summer home in the Berkshire Mountains in Lenox, Massachusetts. Jazz greats highlighting this year’s festival include Harry Connick, Jr., the Branford Marsalis Quartet, the Dave Brubeck Quartet and Symphonette, Marian McPartland, Taylor Eigsti, Eliane Elias, Eddie Palmieri and La Perfecta II, the Doug Wamble Quartet, the Miguel Zenon Quartet, and tap dancers Savion Glover and Jimmy Slyde in a special jazz tap performance.

“It’s a distinct pleasure for us at Fidelity to support the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, one of the many high notes of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s summer session at Tanglewood,” said Robert L. Reynolds, Vice Chairman and Chief Operating Officer of Fidelity Investments.

“Considered by many to be the most American of art forms, jazz perfectly reflects the boundless creativity, innovation and energy of the American spirit. We’re proud to be able to do our part to make this festival possible, and we hope that our ongoing commitment to the BSO and this consistently outstanding event ensures that the sound of jazz will echo across the Berkshires and beyond for years to come.”

This year’s festival opens Friday, September 3, at 8 pm with a performance by Brazilian born, Grammy nominated pianist, Eliane Elias, known for her distinctive musical style blending jazz and classical music. Her early career included work with Antonio Carlos Jobim’s co-writer and lyricist, Vinicius de Moraes. She is considered one of the great interpreters of Jobim’s music with two albums solely dedicated to works of the composer.

Ms. Elias has recorded 16 chart-topping albums on Blue Note, RCA/Bluebird, EMI Classics, Red Seal and BMG. She has recorded with Randy Brecker and the Grammy winning Brecker Brothers, Joe Henderson, Sting, Caetano Veloso, Michael Franks, Earl Klugh and Toots Thielemans. Ms. Elias and Herbie Hancock were nominated for a Grammy in 1995 for their collaboration on “Solos and Duets.” In 2001, Ms. Elias was featured in the documentary film, “Calle 54,” directed by Oscar winner, Fernando Trueba, and in 2002 she recorded with opera sensation Denyce Graves.

Her new CD, “Dreamer,” (Arista-Bluebird 2004) was recorded with a full orchestra and is an elegant, sensual selection of bossa nova and American standards such as “Call Me,” “Tangerine,” and “Baubels, Bangels and Beads.” With orchestrations by Rob Mathes (who has worked with Luciano Pavarotti, Yo Yo Ma, Sting, Lou Reed and Stevie Wonder) and special guests, bossa nova guitar legend, Oscar Castro Neves, and tenor saxophonist, Michael Brecker. The recording has reached #4 on the Billboard charts, #8 on jazz radio charts and is ranked the #3 jazz album in France. It was also awarded a Gold Disc Award in Japan.

Ms. Elias will perform on piano and vocals with Marc Johnson on bass, Satoshi Takeishi on drums and Ruban de la Corte on guitar.

The stage will be on fire in the second set Friday night with Latin salsa king, Eddie Palmieri and his ten-piece ensemble, La Perfecta II, representing the high energy of contemporary Latin jazz at its best. Palmieri, a Spanish Harlem native and seven-time Grammy winner, is deeply rooted in hard core salsa and Latin jazz influenced by Thelonius Monk and McCoy Tyner as well as his friend and close colleague, the late Tito Puente.

Combining chamber string influences, salsa, mambo and driving Latin jazz, Palmieri has revived the powerful sound of the ensemble that he originally created four decades ago. Replacing the traditional trumpet section with a trombone section (“the band with the crazy roaring elephants”), Palmieri’s innovative instrumentation and varied musical influences have become his trademark.

The Friday night program will be broadcast live on WGBH Radio, Boston, WBGO Radio, Newark, and 15 other public radio stations across the country.

Tony winner, Savion Glover, and tap legend, Jimmy Slyde, will present a special all-jazz tap performance at 1 pm on Saturday, September 4, at the Theatre Stage.

Glover stormed across the dance world in the 1980’s with his hard-hitting tap and improvisational choreography uniting elements from jazz, hip-hop, rap, be-bop and world music. Featured on the cover of “Dance” Magazine (May 2004) his recent performances are called “captivating, his hold on the audience through his singular performance is extreme.” The late Gregory Hines, Glover’s idol, was quoted once as saying, “There is Savion Glover and then there are the rest of us… he has changed the way we perceive tap dancing.”

Glover debuted on Broadway as the lead in “The Tap Dance Kid” in 1983 at age 12. In 1988, he co-starred in the film, “Tap,” with Gregory Hines and Sammy Davis, Jr. and has appeared on PBS in “Dance in America: Tap!” with Hines and Tommy Tune.

He earned a Tony nomination in 1989 for his performance on Broadway in “Black & Blue” and appeared opposite Gregory Hines in “Jelly’s Last Jam” in 1992-93.

Glover won the Tony Award in 1996 for his choreography of “Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk” and has performed in venues around the world including the Moulin Rouge, Lincoln Center, the Smithsonian Institution, Carnegie Hall and the White House. He has appeared on CBS, ABC and PBS and on the big screen in the Spike Lee film, “Bamboozled.” Glover is currently working on a project with Wynton Marsalis for the opening of Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Fall of 2004 and is an artist-in-residence at the Sundance Institute.

Jimmy Slyde (born Jimmy Gotbolt) is a tap master with a rich performance history. He began dancing at age 14 and joined the popular act, the Slyde Brothers (with Jimmy “Sir Slyde” Mitchell) that launched him into an international stage career in the 1930′s and 1940′s performing in major cities and venues around the world. His signature dance style of appearing to slide or skate across the stage resulted in an inevitable name change and he adopted the moniker Jimmy Slyde. He recently performed at Columbia University with the Sir Charles Thompson Trio in “Bebop is a Dance,” (April 2004).

Pianist, Marian McPartland, known to NPR listeners for her “Piano Jazz” series, which turns 26 this year, returns to Tanglewood’s Ozawa Hall with special guest, pianist, Taylor Eigsti, on Saturday, September 4, at 3 pm for a live taping of the program for a future “Piano Jazz” broadcast. Since 1978, Ms. McPartland has interviewed over 500 musicians and performers including Norah Jones (recorded live at last year’s Tanglewood Jazz Festival), Diana Krall, Elvis Costello, Dave Brubeck, Dizzy Gillespie, Rosemary Clooney, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau, Ray Charles, Carmen McRae and even William F. Buckley. Her easy, comfortable style, charm and quick-witted humor engage her guests in fascinating and sometimes revealing conversations while seated at the piano.

Ms. McPartland’s special guest will be Taylor Eigsti, (pronounced “ikes-dee”) a 19 year old Californian, who has been performing on stage since the age of eight when he debuted with David Benoit. His highly accelerated music career has included appearances with Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, James Moody, Bobby Hutcherson, Kevin Mahogany, Bill Watrous, Diane Schuur, Lewis Nash, Alan Broadbent, Red Holloway, Rufus Reid and Dave Brubeck who claimed, “he’s the most amazing talent I’ve ever come across. Remember him.” Eigsti has also performed in the classical and opera genres with Sylvia McNair, Frederica von Stade, the San Jose Symphony and the Sacramento Philharmonic.

Billboard Magazine ranked Eigsti’s third and latest CD, “Resonance” (Bop City Records 2003) “an A+…a composer/player who’s going to have a major-league jazz career.” Downbeat Magazine and the All Music Guide both awarded it four-stars, noting Eigsti’s sophisticated composing and arranging style.

A Presidential Scholar at the University of Southern California, Eigsti has an impressive teaching resume as a member of the faculty of the Stanford Jazz Workshop and the San Jose State Jazz Workshop since 1999. He is committed to teaching and performing with younger players and is interested in other genres of music, as are many of his contemporaries such as Jane Monheit, Peter Cincotti and Jamie Cullam.

Harry Connick, Jr. brings his 16 piece big band and additional 16 piece string orchestra to Tanglewood Saturday, September 4, at 8 pm in the Koussevitzky Music Shed as part of his national “Only You” Tour. Winner of three Grammy awards, Connick has sold over 20 million records. An accomplished film and TV acting career (“Memphis Belle,” “Hope Floats,” “Independence Day” and NBC’s “Will and Grace”) has resulted in nominations for a Tony, an Emmy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Cable Ace Award.

Connick’s latest CD with his big band is “Only You,” (Sony 2004) and features an eclectic selection of pop love songs from the 1950’s and 1960’s including “I Only Have Eyes For You,” Goodnight My Love,” “For Once in My Life,” and the title song, “Only You.” The CD debuted at #5 on the Billboard 200 chart and has reached Gold record status.

Sunday, September 5, at 2 pm will kick off the full roster of the Marsalis Music label. The artists in “Marsalis Music Presents” are the Branford Marsalis Quartet, the Harry Connick, Jr. Quartet, the Doug Wamble Quartet and the Miguel Zenon Quartet.

Saxophonist, Branford Marsalis, is making jazz history, not only through performance with the Branford Marsalis Quartet, but with the recent creation of the Marsalis Music label. Committed to artist-driven recordings, rather than commercial, profit-driven projects by major labels, Marsalis Music is led by a foremost jazz musician and a man with a vision.

The September 2003 release of “Romare Bearden Revealed,” features Mr. Marsalis on saxophone, Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass, Jeff “Tain” Watts on drums and guest artists Doug Wamble on guitar and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet. The project was based on “The Art of Romare Bearden,” a retrospective exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art and a clear signal to the music community that Marsalis Music had a new approach to the recording industry.

Mr. Marsalis will perform with his regular quartet members Calderazzo, Revis and Watts.

Harry Connick, Jr. returned to his jazz roots in 2003 with an instrumental recording (no vocals) on Marsalis Music entitled, “Other Hours.” The first in a “Connick on Piano” series planned by the label, the Harry Connick, Jr. Quartet was enthusiastically received by hard-core jazz critics. Material on the CD includes 12 original compositions for the musical, “Thou Shall Not,” based on Emile Zola’s classic 1868 novel, “Therese Racquin,” for which Connick received a Tony nomination.

Connick will perform with band members Charles “Ned” Goold on tenor saxophone, Neal Caine on bass and Arthur Latin, II on drums.

Bursting onto the scene with a debut recording that received excellent reviews from critics across the country, guitarist and vocalist, Doug Wamble, weaves blues, jazz, country and gospel into a rich, highly textured sound.

A Tennessee native and graduate of Memphis State University and Northwestern University, Wamble first embarked on a career as a recording engineer to assuage his family’s fears of his becoming a professional musician. An inspiring performance by guitarist, Russell Malone, with Harry Connick, Jr.’s big band altered Wamble’s course of study and he set off on a journey that would lead to a full time career as a guitarist and vocalist.

His Marsalis Music recording, “Country Libations,” includes nine original songs that he cites to three major influences: delta blues, gospel and Ornette Coleman.

Wamble will perform with Roy Dunlap on piano, Jeff Hanley on bass and Peter Miles on drums.

Alto saxophonist and composer, Miguel Zenon, has become a serious force in the jazz world since his emergence on the national scene in 2001. A graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Manhattan School of Music in New York, Zenon, who had planned to become an engineer, has dazzled critics and audiences with his sophisticated compositions and lyrical, rhythmic playing.

Heavily influenced by Puerto Rican folk, or jibaro, singers from his homeland, as well as West African rhythms, salsa, traditional bomba y plena and hymns he heard as a child, Zenon exemplifies the new generation of jazz musicians in his global approach to music.

Awarded a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts to compose music to be performed at the Jazz Gallery in New York, Zenon wowed critics with his “impressively organized, intellectually powerful compositions” (New York Times) with the debut of “Jibaro Journeys: Music from the Mountains of Puerto Rico.”

Zenon’s resume includes extensive work with the David Sanchez Quartet, pianist, Danilo Perez, the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra and the San Francisco Modern Jazz Collective led by Joshua Redman. His new CD on Marsalis Music, “Ceremonial” (2004) is representative of the commitment by the label to support and showcase a contemporary, highly talented, improvising musician with a unique sound. “Ceremonial” includes seven originals and the traditional hymn, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”

Jazz giant and Tanglewood favorite, Dave Brubeck, closes the festival Sunday, September 5, at 8 pm, at Ozawa Hall with his legendary Quartet and a special performance of the Quartet augmented by a 23 piece string symphonette. As an innovator of the original “West Coast” jazz style, Dave Brubeck’s illustrious career is a chapter from contemporary American cultural history.

From his early years as a jazz pianist in clubs and on college campuses to performing in every major concert hall and performance center in the world, Brubeck, who was born and raised in California, consistently delivers what is considered to be the highest standard in American jazz music.

With literally hundreds of recordings under his belt, Brubeck’s latest is a personal memoir of his Army career at the end of World War II. “Private Brubeck Remembers” (Telarc, May 2004) is a solo piano recital of memorable classics such as “Where or When,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me),” and “Last Time I Saw Paris.” A second CD in the set includes an interview with Walter Cronkite discussing Brubeck’s experience of leading a band on the frontlines.

A new five CD box entitled, “For All Time,” (Sony, March 2004) features recordings made by the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet (with Paul Desmond, Eugene Wright and Joe Morello) between 1959 and 1965, and showcases the extraordinary talent of a true American icon.

Brubeck will perform with quartet members Michael Moore on bass, Bobby Militello on reeds, and Randy Jones on drums.
