Seattle Film Institute Logo

Hands-on production skills combined with film-related general education classes provides a fully integrated education.

this is an opportunity to take the strengths of SFI to a new level and to provide an educational structure that puts SFI at the cutting-edge of developments in higher education”

— David Shulman; President, Seattle Film Institute

SEATTLE, WA, US, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Seattle Film Institute (SFI) announced that it will offer an accelerated BA in Film degree beginning September 16, 2019. The new program provides 180 quarter-credits required for a BA degree and students may finish in three years start-to-finish (with traditional timetables available as well). The accelerated degree incorporates a focused general education curriculum providing an engaging, field-specific and fully integrated educational experience for beginning filmmakers and digital artists. Students choose concentrations in one of the following areas—Filmmaking; Media Arts, Animation, & Game Design; Acting for Film; or Audio Production & Sound Design.

SFI is known for its exceptionally high institutional graduation rate of more than 90% which is the highest of any school in Washington based on Department of Education data for institutions with comparable programs. David Shulman, president of Seattle Film Institute, sees the accelerated BA degree “as an opportunity to take the strengths of SFI to a new level and to provide an educational structure that puts SFI at the cutting-edge of developments in higher education.” The Washington State Council of Presidents final work group report on accelerated degree programs noted that “accelerated degree pathways have captured the attention of policymakers in recent years as an innovative approach to improve college affordability, address workforce needs and increase degree completion” which are core areas of Seattle Film Institute’s mission.

At the undergraduate level, student engagement and program completion are dramatically increased when field-specific focused general education is added to the curriculum. According to the Association of American Colleges and Universities, “this new approach to general education can empower all students to develop their capacities through meaningful problem-based work as part of an intentional, coherent, engaging, and integrated educational experience.” SFI highlights the future of higher education as it provides one of the few BA film degrees in the country that blends an accelerated degree with a field-related general education curriculum within the same program.

The SFI BA in Film degree provides accessible and affordable education, career-driven hands-on learning, transfer-friendly degree requirements, and flexible schedules with on-ground, online, low residency and blended options. SFI's programs are guided by a mentor-based faculty who are working film professionals providing the conceptual, technical, and creative foundation necessary to launch careers in today’s fast-paced film environment.

Rhino Shield Wisconsin owner Jay Mariano offers a closer look at the business

Jay Mariano, owner of Rhino Shield Wisconsin, provides a closer, behind the scenes look at operations at the revolutionary statewide wall coating company.

BROOKFIELD, WISCONSIN, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A leader in America's premium wall coating sector, Rhino Shield has enjoyed impressive and consistent growth, year-on-year, since its inception close to two decades ago. Rhino Shield Wisconsin owner Jay Mariano offers a closer look at the technology behind the company, first established in 2000.

"Unfortunately, with many home improvement businesses, it's often a case of 'here today' and 'gone tomorrow,'" suggests Mariano. At Rhino Shield Wisconsin, however, he says, this simply isn't how things work. "At Rhino Shield, that's just not how we operate," Mariano explains, "as reflected perfectly in the company's impressive, two-decade history."

Rhino Shield was founded, according to the firm, with a straightforward goal. "This goal," reveals Mariano, "was to provide the most long-lasting and durable wall coating product available on the market, capable of ending the traditional, dreaded cycle of painting and repainting, again and again."

The team behind Rhino Shield subsequently invested more than a year into painstaking research, soon ascertaining that ceramic technology offered the key. "Ceramic technology provided the key not just to durability, but to solar ray reflectivity and additional breathability, too," suggests Mariano.

It was quickly discovered that breathability, in particular, was an essential characteristic required in order for Rhino Shield to be as effective, durable, and reliable as possible; something which the company guarantees to this day. "Twelve months after research and development started, and after working closely with top chemists and manufacturing partners, the Rhino Shield system was born," Mariano reveals.

Thoroughly field tested, the product has proven again and again its efficacy in regards to both durability and insulation in the years which have followed, including in tests carried out by leading independent laboratories.

High standards are further maintained thanks to Rhino Shield's network of only certified applicators. "Our entire team here at Rhino Shield Wisconsin all have significant professional experience in either the painting or coating businesses," adds Mariano. "What's more, to really guide our business here in Wisconsin," he continues, "we subscribe to a straightforward but extremely important set of values."

These values, says Mariano, include superior ongoing innovation, industry-leading levels of quality control, absolute integrity and honesty, and a commitment to best-in-class customer service.

"We're confident, then," he continues, "thanks to an unrelenting focus on product development, and continuous attention to detail, that clients will find Rhino Shield Wisconsin to represent the number one, stand-out company and system for protecting their property or properties from the elements."

"Choose Rhino Shield Wisconsin," Mariano adds, wrapping up, "and never paint again!"

Samuel Lehrer Has Committed Over Two Decades of Assistance to The Little Yellow School House Mission

Samuel Lehrer

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Samuel Lehrer is a real estate developer and graduate of the University of Florida, with degrees in Hotel & Restaurant Management, Marketing, and additional emphasis on Health Care management.. He and his family are longtime supporters of The Little Yellow School House on Isla Mujeres, which provides challenged children with skills to achieve their greatest potential.

Since graduating from the University of Florida in 1994, Samuel Lehrer has worked in medical sales, management, and business development, making a major name for himself in the medical supply and pharmaceutical industries. Retailing medical equipment, he’s worked with devices for cardiothoracic surgery, ophthalmic and refractive equipment, and cosmetic and surgical lasers. Today, Samuel Lehrer is CEO of The Laser Outlet, which is an industry-leading retailer of used aesthetic equipment and cosmetic lasers. Mr. Lehrer is a consultant for several name brand ophthalmic laser companies, as well as developing a hotel, and residential real estate projects in Mexico, and South America. Mr. Lehre also owns and operates two Aesthetic Medical practices in Cancun, Mexico.

For more than two decades, Samuel Lehrer has used his success in these industries, along with the help of his family, to support The Little Yellow School House on Isla Mujeres, a philanthropic organization based on the Mexican island off the coast of Cancun.

The area is commonly recognized as a world-famous vacation destination with beaches, resorts, snorkeling and scuba excursions around the local coral reefs. However, the area also hosts The Little Yellow School House which helps disadvantaged, disabled, and special needs children grow and achieve their greatest potential.

“My family and my mother specifically, have long worked alongside the dedicated team at The Little Yellow School House,” says Samuel Lehrer. “Together, we recognize that all kids no matter their condition deserve a happy childhood, and we work to deliver resources to improve their personal growth.” Life changing donations from all over the world, and hard work by staff and donated physician time, have contributed to so much success.

At The Little Yellow School House, children are provided a safe place to learn in an environment of acceptance and love. In addition to educational resources, the organization provides the children’s families therapy to better cope with special needs. Since 2004, The Little Yellow School House has been entirely funded by donations and is able to provide free admission thanks to supporters such as Samuel Lehrer and his family. Specifically his mother is a driving force behind the daily operations, and fund-raising. Her tireless efforts are amazing. “She pushes us all to be better people”.

The nonprofit organization doesn’t pursue any religious or political agendas and is the only learning center dedicated to special needs on the entire island of Isla Mujeres. The therapy each child receives is individualized and covers psychological, speech, physical and gross motor skills. The comprehensive offerings and customized therapies are all based on meetings and evaluations that representatives make with each child’s therapists, teachers, and family members. In addition to educational assistance, The Little Yellow School House provides individual and group therapy for each child and their family as well as psychological help as needed.

With donations and support from people like Samuel Lehrer and his family, the organization has grown from a single-room school to a facility with four classrooms, two consulting rooms, and a kitchen. Additionally, The Little Yellow School House offers an outdoor playing area that was designed by a visiting Psychologist for the development of children’s gross motor skills. In all, the organization provides the island’s greatest hope of giving special needs children a happy, constructive education as well as peace of mind to their families.

Dr. Scott P. Zack Reveals Surprising Conditions Treatable with Chiropractics

Oakland County chiropractor Dr. Scott P. Zack reveals three common conditions little-known to be treatable with chiropractic care.

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, MICHIGAN, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — From inner-ear issues to carpal tunnel syndrome, chiropractic care is today widely used to treat a number of conditions not directly tied to neck and back pain, traditionally the most common reasons for seeking the help of a chiropractor. That's according to Detroit metropolitan area of Michigan chiropractor Dr. Scott P. Zack as he explores three common health complaints which can be addressed using chiropractic medicine.

"It's a little-known fact that chiropractic care, in addition to dealing with neck and back pain, may also be used to effectively treat conditions bound to the wider musculoskeletal and nervous systems," reveals Dr. Scott P. Zack, "both of which are closely tied to countless other conditions, as well as more general health and wellness."

With chiropractic care, he says, it's possible to treat many of the most important bones and joints in the body, including those in the legs, arms, ears, and jaw. "The jaw and ears, in particular, are notorious for being the root of a huge number of highly painful or debilitating conditions," Dr. Zack goes on to explain, "many of which may be addressed with the help of an experienced chiropractor."

Of three specific conditions highlighted by the expert, Dr. Zack first turns to carpal tunnel syndrome. "Most often caused by a compressed nerve in the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome causes tingling and numbness of the hands and fingers," he explains, "which is highly troublesome for many patients."

Traditional treatments for carpal tunnel syndrome include steroids and anti-inflammatory drugs, and, in some cases, surgery.

Yet, says Dr. Zack, chiropractic care can, instead, be utilized to treat the condition by performing chiropractic adjustments of the wrist or wrists. "By ever-so-slightly manipulating the lunate, one of the bones in the wrist, symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can be addressed by a chiropractor without the need for expensive drugs or surgery," he adds.

Next, Dr. Zack points toward what's known as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. "Responsible for dizziness and vertigo-like symptoms, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is often the result of debris in the ear canals," the expert explains, "something which chiropractic repositioning maneuvers can be used to address, shifting the debris and relieving the often highly debilitating symptoms of the condition."

Lastly, Dr. Scott P. Zack touches on other, more general inner-ear issues. "Chiropractic techniques may be used to successfully treat the painful symptoms of ear infections, for example, as well as other illnesses and conditions tied to this part of the body," he reveals.

By promoting the drainage of any trapped fluid, itself a common cause of ear infections, chiropractic medicine can be used both to treat and to relieve the symptoms of numerous conditions of the ears.

"Manipulation of the tiny bones within the ear is also an option," Dr. Scott P. Zack adds, wrapping up, "with misalignment of these bones capable of causing or contributing toward a wide range of ear-related issues, and thus representing something else which can, perhaps surprisingly, be treated by an experienced chiropractor."

Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Acknowledges Volunteers with Alice in Wonderland Tea Party

The Clearwater Community Volunteers Center held an Alice in Wonderland-themed tea party to thank volunteers for helping with the annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park. Pictured here are volunteers who won prizes at the party.

Tea Party with Alice in Wonderland design is held for volunteers of Clearwater Community Volunteers’ Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt.

We put on this tea party to show our volunteers our appreciation for their support in CCV’s purpose of helping families and children in our community. ”

— Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center

CLEARWATER, FL, US, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Saturday, May 18th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center acknowledged volunteers and donors from this year’s Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman Park with an Alice in Wonderland-Themed tea party in the center’s café-style gathering space. Sixteen volunteers and donors attended the event complete with hidden gifts and raffle prizes.

Michael Goltz, a CCV volunteer said, “I’m very happy to help CCV with their events. This Tea Party is just the icing on the cake for me.”

Volunteers and donors who had never met one another made new connections while others were happy to see that their friends and neighbors also helped at CCV’s most recent Easter Egg Hunt.

Guests received a raffle ticket and got their seats. Tables were set up with quotes from Alice in Wonderland along with red roses and “EAT ME” and “DRINK ME” signs from the book posted near the food and drinks. The Alice in Wonderland -theme was chosen as it fit the author Lewis Carroll’s idea of helping others: “One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.”

Ms. Gertie Perry, CCV Volunteer, acted as the event MC. She thanked the volunteers for their help, whether in the form of donations or manning the volunteer stations at the Easter Egg Hunt. Ms. Perry then made a surprise announcement and told the guests to search “high and low” for four hidden gifts and whoever found them could keep it.

After all the hidden gifts were found Ms. Perry began the raffle. She reached into a bowl of tickets and called out the name of the person whose ticket she retrieved. Among the prizes won were handmade jewelry, beauty products, gift cards and a painting.

“The backbone of CCV is our Volunteers”, said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center. “We put on this tea party to show our volunteers our appreciation for their support in CCV’s purpose of helping families and children in our community. Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard summed it up with when he said, ‘Your help is acceptable to us. Our help is yours.’”

Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT Recommends Minimizing Artificial Food Color Consumption for Children

Rosemary Barclay

OLD LYME, CONNECTICUT, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dyes have recently been linked to issues with hyperactivity and ADHD. Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT recommends minimizing your child’s consumption of potentially harmful dyes, preservatives and additives in foods

The effects of artificial food coloring on behavior in children has been studied for more than 40 years. After reviewing recently published research, Rosemary Barclay, owner and founder of Bonne Santé Wellness Center in Old Lyme, CT, shares her findings on the harmful effects of artificial food coloring on child behavior. These commonly used ingredients are often times not given a second thought by parents, but can have a significant long term negative impact on children with ADHD and hyperactivity. Rosemary Barclay shares her thoughts on the effects of food colorings, dyes and additives and their effects on developing children.

Artificial dyes are added to foods to enhance or maintain their appearance. This could mean brightening existing colors, prevent the loss of colors through elements of transportation and the environment, creating enticing looking beverages, or preserving a products appearance throughout its shelf life. The Food and Drug Administration currently deems nine different artificial colors to be safe but recent concerns have arisen over the use of food colorings and dyes in foods. In 2007, a study conducted in the UK linked the preservative sodium benzoate increased hyperreactivity in children and the European Union required labelling stating that this preservative “may produce an effect on activity and attention in children”.

Two types of artificial food coloring are used, dyes and lakes. Dyes are water-soluble; often found in liquids, granules, or powders. Lakes are not water-soluble; they are found in food products containing fats and oils. Food dye is found in beverages more than any other product, as people often associate a color with a particular flavor. A brightly colored drink can be more appealing and look tastier. Rosemary Barclay urges the general public to stay away from drinks with heavy use of food coloring often found in sodas, sports drinks, and cocktail mixers. These should not be given to children on a daily basis.

Sweets are another hidden source of food coloring, so it might be best to limit that Halloween candy. Rosemary Barclay notes that they can also be found in more unsuspecting sweet sources like cereals, fruit snacks, ice cream, popsicles, icings and even toaster tarts. Try choosing natural breakfast and snack choices like fruit, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Parents should opt for foods that are colored with natural herbs and spices like paprika, tumeric and annatto.

Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT suggests examining your child’s daily food intake and determine where artificial food coloring can be minimized. Also, research foods that your children like to eat and make substitutions for those foods that contain less food coloring. An example includes swapping GoGurt out for plain yogurt with toppings like honey, smashed fruit, or granola. Completely eliminating artificial food coloring is not an impossible task, buteven minimizing consumption can make a huge difference.

Clearly further research needs to be performed on individual food dyes, preservatives and colorings on the developing brain.To date scientists, consumers and the government have not found conclusive evidence linking dyes to hyperreactivity in children but not enough research has been conducted.

Rosemary Barclay states: “Artificial food coloring needs more research for a definitive conclusion on the effects it has on child development and behavior. However, although limited studies have been done, we have a pretty good idea that artificial food dyes are not nutrients and are not healthy for children and food manufacturers should be required to conduct studies showing safety ”. “These dyes and preservatives may affect a subgroup of children but isn’t the healthier choice just to avoid them altogether?”

About Rosemary Barclay

Rosemary Barclay of Old Lyme, CT believes that nutrition is fundamental to good health, and affects many faucets of well-being including the skin, energy, immunity, mood, and performance. The Bonne Santé Wellness Center in Old Lyme, CT, offers solutions to problematic skin without the use of antibiotics or harsh chemicals.

Self-Made: Johnny Beig's Journey from Humble Immigrant to Entrepreneurial Powerhouse

Johnny Beig

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In America, the reality that our greatest desires can be achieved with resilience and perseverance is an educated mantra we learn as children. We go to our schools, learn our multiplication tables, and are raised to believe that we live in an equal-opportunity nation-the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, as it were. That with dedication and hard work we can achieve any goal, have any career, and create a beautiful reality that will carry us into old age.

For hundreds of thousands of immigrants, however; this is an all-too-often unattainable dream which requires a degree of perseverance that many born in America may never understand. An immigrant pursuing the American Dream is not a new narrative, but the individual stories of the men and women who come to this country to create better lives for themselves are among the most unique stories told today.

Johnny Beig, immigrant of Kashmir, India, entrepreneurial powerhouse, and co-founder of The Dioz Group and Alanic Athleticwear is re-defining what it means to be an immigrant business owner in America. He shows us that growing up in a warzone does not translate to lifelong hardship when leveraged as a motivational tool and stepping stone toward a better life.

For Beig, success was not achieved overnight. His story begins in Kashmir where his police commissioner father offered an often too-close-for-comfort look at the true suffering that was occurring each day in his home town.

"My Dad was Police Commissioner, so he had a very good position, said Beig. But obviously Kashmir has been associated with a lot of terrorism, so it was not the safest place for us. We had to move around a lot."

One of Beig's earliest memories of living in a city overtaken by rebels was when he was 14 years old. His father was found unconscious with injuries to his legs, face, and neck, which would keep him confined to a hospital bed for weeks.

"My Dad's security guards came to our home and said there was an attack on his squad car. He tried to diffuse a situation, and someone threw a bomb in his direction," he said.

Though his father survived, the lasting impact this moment had on his family was motivation enough to seek a better, safer life away from Kashmir. Two years later, Beig's father and mother moved he and his siblings to Melbourne, Australia. His father elected to stay behind in Kashmir, committed to keeping the peace in his ancestral home and providing for his family thousands of miles away.

"My Dad saw potential in us and he didn't want us living in an environment where we couldn't excel or reach that potential," said Beig.

Upon arriving in Australia, Beig began working as an IT Manager while playing semi-pro cricket. While he was making good money, he quickly realized his passions lived outside of the IT world. He dreamt of creating a business that combined his greatest passions in life but would also provide an income like no one in his family had ever seen.

"I realized I wasn't good enough as a professional sportsman, but I wanted to mix my passion for sports and making money with something I loved. As a result, I started to design uniforms for my own cricket team, he said. I started getting more orders from other local teams and today we now work with over 1,500 teams and 1000 Largest Sporting events worldwide."

The early success of Alanic resulted in Beig moving his family to Beverly Hills, California, where he would open the newest Alanic and Dioz Group offices. The company was taking off, but not without a few bumps in the road.

"A few years ago I thought we were growing too fast, said Beig. We went through a really hard time; I was feeling regretful, thinking I hired too many people or opened too many offices. It was one of the most stressful times of my life and I thought 'Oh my God, this is the end.'"

The writing was on the wall and many people would have given up, but a special piece of advice he had been given at a young age kept Beig going.

"Everything happens for a reason, he said. So, I never quit. I just keep going because success is always right around the corner. It hasn't always been sunny and there have been times I was very close to giving up, but I remained persistent. I had to keep believing in myself and the company; believing in what we were doing."

Today, Alanic has grown and expanded into an international and impregnable fortress of athletic wear. With offices in Los Angeles, Tampa, Sydney, London, Shanghai, New Delhi, and Mexico City, with almost 120 staff worldwide, and the brand spans across multiple time zones, which Beig and his team credit as the driving force behind their impeccable customer service.

"My phone is always on me, said Andrew Thorne, Business Development Manager at Alanic. Since many of our factories are located on the other side of the world we never really stop working. Our customers come to us and get answers instantly. Our reception is covered 24/7."

In its short history, Alanic has partnered with hundreds of major marathons around the world, including; Tough Mudder, the San Francisco Marathon, Honolulu Marathon, Seattle Marathon, The Great Ethiopian Run and Beirut Marathon in Middle East and Africa and Many More.

Additionally, Marshawn Lynch's Beastmode brand and Justin Bieber's Drew House line have both partnered with Alanic for them to Manufacture.

"We have come up with new, trendy styles that are different from what you see in a Nike or Adidas store, said Beig. This is an athleisure brand. If Alanic is only being worn in the gym, that's one confined space. We want customers wearing [Alanic] on a date or at the coffee shop."

Beig has experienced hardships that many of us will never understand ourselves, but he credits all of these experiences for the success of Alanic and remains grateful for all the ups and downs.

"If you can't stand back up, then you're done, said Beig. How high you bounce back is what defines a champion. I wasn't born entrepreneurial, but as long as you learn from your mistakes and move forward, you're going to be okay."

Beig currently lives in Beverly Hills, California with his family and is also looked up to as a role model on social media to many young entrepreneurs who have big ambitions and dreams.

Since founding North/South Consonance in 1980, Mr. Lifchitz, a Mexican-born composer, conductor and pianist, has devoted copious effort to promoting the work of composers underserved elsewhere.”

— New York Times

NEW YORK CITY, NY, USA, May 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — North/South Consonance, Inc. continues its 39th season on Tuesday evening June 4 when the North/South Consonance Ensemble under the direction of Max Lifchitz introduces music by composers hailing from Brazil, Mexico and throughout the US.

To be heard for the first time in New York City are works for pierrot ensemble by Brazil's Jorge Antunes and Americans Timothy Kramer, Paul Richards and Sarah Wald. Rounding off the program a work by Max Lifchitz, the Mexican-American composer and conductor.

The members of the North/South Chamber Orchestra performing this concert include flutist Lisa Hansen, clarinetist Sammy Lesnick, violinist Mioi Takeda, cellist Marisol Espada, percussionist Sam Budish and pianist Helen Lin.

The event will start at 8 PM and end approximately at 9:30 PM. It will be held at the air-conditioned auditorium of Christ and St. Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street — between Broadway and Columbus) in Manhattan. The auditorium is ADA accessible. No tickets or reservations needed.


Jorge Antunes' Columbine Lunaire is an intensely vivid and colorful work written as hommage to the 20th century master Arnold Schoenberg's whose masterpiece Pierrot Lunaire is one of the seminal contemporary compositions. A native of Rio de Janeiro, Antunes taught at the Villa-Lobos Institute and earned a doctorate in aesthetics at the Sorbonne. His works have been performed throughout Europe and Latin America and are published by Sistrum.

Timothy Kramer's Open Borders — commissioned by the Mexican ensemble Onix — represents the composer's reaction to the various political solutions proposed to deal with the US-Mexico border. Kramer describes the work as "a rich tapestry of music unfolds: an odd, exotic tune; a jagged blues progression; a Latin groove; a small minimalist whirlpool." Kramer studied at the University of Michigan and has taught at Trinity University in San Antonio and Illinois College. The press has described his style as "constantly inventive, clear, full of energy and admirably precise."

Max Lifchitz's Yellow Ribbons No. 35 is a haunting, single-movement work inspired by the 1979 American hostage crisis in Iran. The work alludes to the continuing war on terrorism and its consequences in a subtle manner. Born in Mexico City, Lifchitz has resided in New York City since 1966. His works have been performed throughout Europe, Latin America and the US. He is well known for his effort to promote the works of composers underserved by mainstream performing organizations.

Paul Richards' Ouroboros takes its name from the depictions of a serpent or dragon eating its own tail, typically symbolizing eternity or cyclicality found in many cultures. The musical materials employed in this work are cyclic in nature suggesting infinity within a finite space. Richards' works have been heard throughout the US and abroad and are published by Carl Fischer Music, Inc. the winners of the ASCAP Rudolph Nissim Prize he heads the composition program at the University of Florida.

Sarah Wald's Bacchanale was mainly inspired by opera: namely, by Bizet's Carmen, by several of Verdi's operas, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, by the Bacchanale from Saint-Saens' Samson et
Dalila. The piece begins at a moderate tempo, which gradually increases to a chaotic frenzy by its end. originally from Chicago, Wald studied at Columbia university and the San Francisco Conservatory. Her works have been featured at various festivals in the U.S. and Europe, and broadcast on WFMT's Relevant Tones program.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a wide spectrum of aesthetic views. Its activities are made possible in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by the Women's Philharmonic Advocacy, the Music Performance Trust Fund as well as the generosity of numerous individual donors.
