The National Inclusion Project is pleased to team with the Foundation for Respect Ability to musically demonstrate what inclusion is all about at their 10th Anniversary Champions Gala on October 12, 2013 in Charlotte, N.C. The performance will feature an inclusive group of Charlotte school children singing multiple songs about respect for all children, including "Don't Laugh at Me" along with Sid Krupkin, the Foundation for Respect Ability's Artistic and Education Director.

"Having local children from the Foundation for Respect Ability programs spread their message of tolerance and diversity through song, seemed like the perfect fit for our event about inclusion. We are excited about their performance and know that all attendees will be inspired by their songs," says Jerry Aiken, Executive Director of the National Inclusion Project.

A study published in the journal Pediatrics that looked at more than 1,450 students in fourth through sixth grades, showed that children with disabilities missed more days of school and had lower grades. The research team from the University of Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins and Marshall University showed that the same kids also reported higher levels of bullying and were less likely to feel safe in school.

The Foundation for Respect Ability ( http://foundationforrespectability.org/ ) seeks to convert "bystanders" into "upstanders" and offers anti bullying programs and services to the community. The non-profit organization conducts workshops, community concerts and in-school programs where the activities and message of diversity and tolerance are primarily delivered through music.

"Our goal is to facilitate opportunities for communication and to develop programs and strategies for helping parents, students, and educators as they deal with bullying, conflict and character development issues," states Diane Benson, Executive Director of the Foundation. The organization is modeled after Operation Respect a non-profit founded by Peter Yarrow of the legendary folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary.

The 10th Anniversary Champions Gala will be hosted by co-founder Clay Aiken and be held on October 12 at the McGlohon Theater at Spirit Square in Charlotte, N.C. at 8 p.m.

Tickets are currently on sale online through www.carolinatix.org and on the phone or in person at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Box Office at (704) 372-1000, Belk Theater Lobby at 130 North Tryon Street in Charlotte, N.C. For more information about the event, please visit the website at http://www.inclusionproject.org/gala/ .

About the National Inclusion Project:

The National Inclusion Project was co-founded in 2003 by entertainer Clay Aiken, and works to bridge the gap between young people with disabilities and the world around them by opening doors for all children to be included together, primarily achieved through recreational programs and training to make after school programs, summer camps and classroom activities inclusive for all children.

To date, the Project has partnered with over 200 programs nationally and has impacted over 50,000 children. For more information on the National Inclusion Project and to help ensure no child sits on the sidelines visit their website at http://www.inclusionproject.org/ .

Join Move For Hunger this Labor Day Weekend for the Fifth Annual Surfside Food Drive, Cornhole Tournament and Concert Series on the 2nd Ave. Asbury Park Boardwalk. While hunger may not be on people's minds during the 2013 summer holidays, for the 120,000 people in Monmouth and Ocean County that struggle to find their next meal, hunger takes no vacations.

Area residents and beachgoers are urged to bring down non-perishable food items from August 31 to September 2, 2013 to the Move For Hunger tent on 2nd Ave boardwalk in Asbury Park. The three-day event features 3 days of live music from local artists and cover bands like Under Pressure, Enjoy! and the B-Street band, as well as the 3rd Annual Surfside Cornhole Tournament at Stone Pony.

On Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, Move For Hunger will be joined by members of the North East Remnant, a team of local Star Wars enthusiasts in screen-accurate replica costumes.

Anyone who donates non-perishable food items over the weekend will receive a free Surfside 2013 T-shirt courtesy of event sponsors and will be entered into a raffle to win one of the many prizes and giveaways. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to come down and enjoy the free music.

"The Surfside Food Drive is a great way for summer residents to clear out the kitchens and pantries of seasonal properties while making a difference for the less fortunate on the Jersey Shore," says Adam Lowy, executive director of Move For Hunger. "Last year almost 3,200 lbs. was collected, enough to provide 2,667 meals to families and individuals in Monmouth and Ocean Counties."

Lowy's Moving Service, the local partner of Move For Hunger, has generously donated all the boxes for the food drive as well as transportation to deliver the food collections directly to the food bank.

For more information about the Surfside Food Drive, registration for the Cornhole tournament and a complete set list of bands, please visit http://www.Moveforhunger.org/surfside/ .

Kansas City Chamber Orchestra Performs ‘A Summer Serenade’

Author: Kansas City Chamber Orchestra
Dateline: Kansas City, Missouri (KANSAS CITY, Mo.)  | Fri, 16 Aug 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra opens its 27th concert season with 'A Summer Serenade,' August 24, 2013 at 8 p.m. in Helzberg Hall at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center in Kansas City, Missouri. Music Director Bruce Sorrell will conduct the concert and prelude the performance with a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m.”



ARTICLE:

The Kansas City Chamber Orchestra opens its 27th concert season with "A Summer Serenade," Aug. 24, 2013 at 8 p.m. in Helzberg Hall at the Kauffman Performing Arts Center in Kansas City, Mo. Music Director Bruce Sorrell will conduct the concert and prelude the performance with a pre-concert talk at 7 p.m.

The Chamber Orchestra is excited to once again welcome Chamber Orchestra favorite Barbara Bishop, who will be soloist in Mozart's virtuosic and lyric Oboe Concerto. Bishop is Assistant Professor of Oboe at UMKC Conservatory and Associate Principal Oboe with the Kansas City Symphony. She has performed with multiple symphonies and orchestras around the country including the National Repertory Orchestra and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.

Sorrell mentions about the evening's music, "Dvorak's richly vibrant Serenade for Strings is redolent of folk dance and filled with lovely, heart-rending tunes. It is one of my favorite works for string orchestra."

And, to round out the evening, the orchestra will perform Schumann's Symphony No. 2., according to Sorrell, "A thrilling masterpiece of the Romantic era, truly one of the most exciting symphonies in the repertoire." The KCCO will bring the piece "to life with the Chamber Orchestra's characteristic attention to clear textures, and glowing colors."

The echo to this concert will be heard in June 2014 when the orchestra plays Dvorak's "Serenade for Winds," a piece the orchestra has not performed in well over a decade.

Individual concert tickets for August 24, 2013 range from $15 to $40 with additional senior and student discounts available.

Tickets are on sale now and are available through the Central Ticket Office at 816.235.6222 or online at http://www.kcchamberorchestra.org and http://tickets.kauffmancenter.org/single/EventDetail.aspx?p=6520 .

Located in Jefferson Park on Chicago's Northwest side, Jeff Fest Arts & Music Festival has become one of Chicago's most highly anticipated neighborhood music festivals of the summer.

The Festival is presented by 45th Ward Alderman Arena, Jefferson Park Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Jefferson Park Advisory Council and the Chicago Park District along with media partner 93.1 WXRT Chicago.

"This year's Jeff Fest Arts & Musical Festival there will be something for everyone and it's worth grabbing your lawn chair, relaxing at the park, and listening to some great local and national bands," said 45th Ward Alderman, John Arena. "This festival is meant for the whole community to enjoy. It's designed for families and friends to gather. It's simply a great way to spend an afternoon."

Thanks to media partner, 93.1 WXRT Chicago, the three-day Jeff Fest Arts and Music Festival offers music ranging from soul, alternative rock, folk rock to techno pop. The festivals headlining band for Friday includes Dot Dot Dot. The Chicago-based "energized pop-rock" quintet, Dot Dot Dot, is a rare breed. This band is building a fan base across the country and making a mark on the music industry on its own terms. By performing both cover songs and original music, the group explores every aspect of two distinct scenes. The cover show consists of fun hits from the '80s through today, and the original show hosts catchy songs from the group's own growing catalog. Setting no boundaries-and a fearless desire to play music full-time-keeps this band moving forward.

Saturday's headliner includes Magic Box. Ed Anderson and Scott Tipping have been making music and mayhem together since the late '90s. Ed moved on to found roots rock trio Backyard Tire Fire in 2001. Scott went on to become a mainstay of the Chicago music scene, playing and touring with bands like Backyard Tire Fire, The Mighty Blue Kings, Peter Himmelman, and Cornmeal. Today, Magic Box, along Chicago musical heavy-weights Steve Gillis (Filter), Scott Stevenson (Robbie Fulks, Dick Smith), and Matt Thompson (The Mighty Blue Kings, Frisbie), stay true to their rock-and-roll tradition while transitioning into a more dynamic, harmony-oriented sound. Most of their new EP has been featured on WXRT's Local Anesthetic.

Sunday's headliner includes Rock Ridge Music Recording Artist, Michael McDermott. McDermott is a singer and songwriter, performer and storyteller to the depths of his soul. He has an uncanny ability to communicate and connect with fans by way of universal truths through his own personal experiences. His 2012 release, Hit Me Back, represents a new chapter in his career as McDermott is a father, a philanthropic entrepreneur, and has experienced the loss of an adored parent. All are major life changes which have found achingly honest expression in his songs.

Ruth Roberts – Children’s Music Songwriter for All Seasons

Author: Ruth Roberts Music
Dateline: Los Angeles, California (LOS ANGELES, Calif.)  | Tue, 26 Mar 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Whatever holiday pops up on your calendar, two things are always true: kids are happy about it and the late Ruth Roberts wrote kids' music to help you celebrate it.”



A R T I C L E:

Whatever holiday pops up on your calendar, two things are always true: kids are happy about it and the late Ruth Roberts wrote kids' music to help you celebrate it. "Children's music was the special province of Ruth Roberts," says Susan Nicoletti, Director of Operations for Goldenrod Music, the publishing company that oversees Roberts' songs.

"Her specialty was mining every holiday for its musical potential, often with lots of humor. Young kids especially love learning and singing along with her funny and pun-filled songs," Nicoletti states.

The output of Roberts includes entire albums of songs for Spring, Easter, Valentine's, St. Patrick's, April Fools, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. "Each collection is part of a series of albums called '[Holiday Name] Songs That Tickle Your Funny Bone,'" Nicoletti points out, adding that songs may also be purchased individually.

"People will find the sing-a-long tunes on these collections to be fun for everyone, even the very youngest family members, plus they are all G-Rated," Nicoletti states. She knows what "G-Rated" means because for five years prior to working with Ruth Roberts Music she was on the ratings board for the Motion Picture Association of America.

About Ruth Roberts:

Ruth Roberts wrote pop, gospel, rock, blues, country, sports, and children's songs. Every sports fan knows some of Roberts' work, from "Meet the Mets" to "It's a Beautiful Day for a Ball Game" to "Mr. Touchdown, USA." Beatles fans know that the Fab Four recorded 'Mailman Bring Me No More Blues,' which is on the 'Anthology 3' album, but they may not realize that the song was written by Roberts.

Love songs by Roberts hit the charts in recordings by Dean Martin, Debbie Reynolds, Theresa Brewer, Jimmy Dean, The McGuire Sisters, Patti Page, Vic Damone, Arthur Godfrey, Steve Allen and Eydie Gorme." Movie and TV viewers have heard Roberts' songs in "Yes Man," "The Benchwarmer," "A Dirty Shame," "Everybody Loves Raymond," "Seinfeld," and the Conan O'Brien show.

While her children's music career began when she worked with Bob Keeshan, TV's Captain Kangaroo, she also excelled in the area of educational songs. "Teachers and educators can discover more about the musicals written by Ruth Roberts for a K-through-grade-6 curriculum on the Ruth Roberts Music website," states Nicoletti.

For more about Ruth Roberts' music for kids, families, schools, and sports fans, please visit http://www.ruthrobertsmusic.com/ and for an interview with Susan Nicoletti, please contact John Scott G of G-Man Marketing at 818-223-8486.

‘Soul Music Week’ is February 15-24, 2013 – Music Fans to Support America’s Great Musical Form

Author: SoulTracks
Dateline: Detroit, Michigan (DETROIT, Mich.)  | Thu, 14 Feb 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Online magazine SoulTracks and soul music fans around the world are taking action to support soul music, one of the most revered forms of music in the world. From Motown to Memphis, from James Brown to Jill Scott, 'soul music' is the sound of our lifetime.”



A R T I C L E:

Online magazine SoulTracks and soul music fans around the world are taking action to support soul music, one of the most revered forms of music in the world. From Motown to Memphis, from James Brown to Jill Scott, "soul music" is the sound of our lifetime.

And while today broadcast radio focuses more on electronic pop and rap, "soul" continues to thrive in large halls, small clubs, family parties and on popular internet destinations like SoulTracks (www.Soultracks.com), America's most popular soul music online magazine.

"We ran a string of articles highlighting the great soul music being made by both young and old artists around the world and the challenge those artists have in getting the attention of broadcast radio and mass media," says SoulTracks Publisher Chris Rizik. "We were then inundated with comments from readers - readers who are passionate about soul music and who want to make a difference in supporting the music and the artists making it."

The result is Soul Music Week 2013. Soul Music Week, which goes from February 15-24, 2013, is designed, according to Rizik, as "a week of discovery, connecting music fans with the great artists who continue to drive soul music forward."

The concept for Soul Music Week is simple. Each music fan is being asked to do three things:
1. Buy a new Soul Music CD, either online or at a physical retailer;
2. Place a comment at SoulTracks' Soul Music Week page, telling what you bought and how you like it; and
3. Spread the word to friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

To see more about Soul Music Week, including music recommendations and a Facebook interface for comments, visit http://www.soulmusicweek.com/ .

SoulTracks has also created links to online stores as well as a directory of independent music retailers around the world at: http://www.soultracks.com/store_directory.htm .

Soul Music Week will not only show tangible support for the artists who are bringing great soul music to the world in 2013, it will also remind radio programmers, record companies and major media of the continued popularity of this unique form of music to millions of music lovers in the US and around the world.

About SoulTracks:

SoulTracks (www.soultracks.com) is America's #1 online magazine dedicated to classic and modern "soul music." SoulTracks features hundreds of biographies of classic and modern soul artists as well as news, CD reviews, free music downloads, listening rooms and "Where Are They Now?" features. It is also the creator of the annual SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards, the leading awards in the world celebrating independent soul music.

Bob Moog Foundation to Inspire the 2013 NAMM Show through Legendary Instruments and Archival Exploration

Author: The Bob Moog Foundation
Dateline: Anaheim, California (ASHEVILLE, N.C. and ANAHEIM, Calif.)  | Mon, 21 Jan 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “The Bob Moog Foundation (BMF) will celebrate the indelible nature of the synthesizer pioneer's legacy at the 2013 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif. Beginning on January 24, NAMM attendees will have opportunities to see and hear demonstrations of vintage Moog instruments and explore rarely seen archival material from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.”



A R T I C L E:

The Bob Moog Foundation (BMF) will celebrate the indelible nature of the synthesizer pioneer's legacy at the 2013 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif. Beginning on January 24, NAMM attendees will have opportunities to see and hear demonstrations of vintage Moog instruments and explore rarely seen archival material from the Bob Moog Foundation Archives.

Front and center at the Foundation's booth at NAMM (#5307) will be rock musician Erik Norlander's modular Moog synthesizer known as the Wall of Doom. Encompassing more than 100 modules (including 22 oscillators), many built between 1967 and 1972, the Wall of Doom is a touring configuration of the legendary synthesizer that gave birth to an industry. Norlander and the Foundation collaborated three years ago to reconfigure the massive instrument into a portable, rack-mounted version. Four of the instrument's six racks will be on display at NAMM, a number limited by the BMF booth's floor space.

Marc Doty, Archive and Education Specialist for the Bob Moog Foundation, will demonstrate the Wall of Doom at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 4 p.m. from Thursday through Sunday.

Also featured will be one of the few duophonic Minimoogs in the world. Recently donated to the BMF by Tom Coppola, the Minimoog was modified by Doug Slocum of Synthetic Sound Labs in the late 1970s. Of particular note is Coppola's use of the synthesizer to create the signature three-note Duracell sound. Slocum will be present to demonstrate the instrument at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. each day.

On Saturday, January 26, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. in room 203 A-B, the Bob Moog Foundation will present "Exploring Bob Moog's Archives with Michael Boddicker" at NAMM's H.O.T. Zone. BMF Executive Director Michelle Moog-Koussa and Marc Doty will join Michael Boddicker, legendary Grammy Award-winning film composer (Flashdance, 1984) and session synthesist (Michael Jackson, Lionel Richie). Boddicker is three-time N.A.R.A.S. Most Valuable Player "Synthesizer" award winner and an MVP Emeritus. He was winner of Keyboard magazine's Reader's Poll Award - Best Studio Synthesist in 1986 and 1987 and Best Session Player in 1988.

Together, the panel will explore rare archival material including photographs, project notes, vintage catalogs, audio from restored reel-to-reel tapes, vintage ads and articles, and more. Boddicker, who has over 700 album credits to his name, will lend a musician's perspective, speaking from his vast experience with the wide variety of early Moog instruments used throughout his career, including some that are quite rare.

In addition, the Foundation is encouraging NAMM attendees to bring their photos of Bob Moog at NAMM to the BMF booth, where we'll create a "Remembering Bob at NAMM" wall.
