Covington is currently completing his tenure as the Rita E.

He recently made his debut with the Curtis Symphony at Carnegie Hall, sharing the podium with Ludovic Morlot.

Special guest pianist Michael Davidman, selected by Covington, will also be part of this spectacular program.

An avid opera enthusiast, exceptional sight reader, chamber player, and accompanist, he has won numerous first-place awards in various competitions and recently completed the four-year scholarship program with The Chopin Foundation of the United States.

Davidman has performed at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, Kimmel Center, Sandler Center, Symphony Space, Merkin Hall, DiMenna Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Steinway Hall, Bechstein Hall, as well as recitals in Italy, Spain, and Russia.

Symphony No. 4, Op. 90 (“Italian”) — a piece Mendelssohn, himself, declared to be the “jolliest” he ever composed. Regarded as a beacon among new generations of Spanish and European musicians, Perez has performed with the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, Malmo Symphony, Radio Television Espanola, Seville Royal Symphony, Gran Canaria Philharmonic, Malaga and Cordoba Symphonies,  and the Andres Segovia and Spanish National Youth Orchestras.

Program 6: May 19-20

The incomparable Phillipe Bianconi will be at the piano for the Monterey Symphony’s final program of the season, performing Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Liszt perfected the art of thematic transformation and took it to an extreme level with this impassioned concerto.

French pianist Bianconi has been described as an artist whose playing is “always close to the soul of the music, filling the space with poetry and life” (Washington Post), “an extraordinary exhibition of musicianship, technical control and good taste which lent the music a freshness, immediacy and conviction one all too seldom encounters” (The London Times). After winning the Silver Medal in the Seventh Van Cliburn International Competition, Bianconi made an acclaimed recital debut at Carnegie Hall in 1987 and, since then, has enthralled audiences and critics throughout the world.

Also featured will be Manuel de Falla’s lovely Noches en los Jardines de Espana, his most impressionist-style work, which details three gardens in a setting for piano and orchestra.

Monaghan Medical Corporation Receives Innovative Technology Designation from Vizient for the AEROBIKA® OPEP device

Designation recognizes products that bring improvements to the health care industry.

Plattsburgh, NY, USA — Monaghan Medical Corporation announced its AEROBIKA® Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) device has received a 2017 Innovative Technology designation from Vizient, Inc., the largest member-driven health care performance improvement company in the country. The designation was based on direct feedback from hospital experts who interacted with the AEROBIKA® OPEP device at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange in Denver on Sept. 14, 2017.

The AEROBIKA® OPEP device is a drug-free, handheld mechanical oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) device that has been designed to address the structural and functional challenges in the airways of patients with COPD. When the patient exhales through the device, it helps to expand the airways, loosen and expel mucus from the lungs and may also enhance drug deposition. It has been shown to improve lung function, exercise capacity and quality of life in COPD patients,1 and a real-world study showed that the device reduced exacerbation rates in patients during the critical 30-day post-exacerbation period.2 These improved outcomes (equivalent to 6 fewer exacerbations per 100 patients per year) equate to a cost savings of $553 per patient with the AEROBIKA® OPEP device compared with no OPEP/PEP use, making the device a cost-effective treatment for COPD patients.

“We are extremely pleased to have been awarded this prestigious recognition from Vizient,” said Dominic Coppolo, MBA, RRT, FAARC, Vice President Clinical Strategy and Development. “Our device was recommended by Vizient members, which is a validation of all of the design and clinical work we have done to support our customers. We are the only OPEP device to have received this designation at this year’s Innovative Technology Exchange, and are proud it was recognized to deliver improved outcomes and enhanced safety.”

“Based on feedback from attendees at the Vizient Innovative Technology Exchange, it was determined that the AEROBIKA® OPEP device should be recognized with an Innovative Technology designation. This designation will be noted in our online member contract catalog. Congratulations to Monaghan Medical Corporation on receiving this status,” said Debbie Archer, director of procurement and Vizient Innovative Technology Program lead.

Vizient represents a diverse membership base that includes academic medical centers, pediatric facilities, community hospitals, integrated health delivery networks and non-acute health care providers and represents more than $100 billion in annual purchasing volume. Through its Innovative Technology Program, Vizient works with member-led councils and task forces to review potentially innovative products. If it is determined that a product is innovative, Vizient may award a contract outside of the competitive bid cycle.

Paradigm Shift Reflects Essential Turning Point in the Conscious Evolution of Mankind on Planet Earth

Prolific Author-Philosopher Notes that the Way Forward Embraces the Abundant Synergy of Man and Woman Balance.

Las Vegas, NV, USA — In his new treatise, author and philosopher Christopher Alan Anderson offers an educational writing that points to a different direction for our collective lives. In these turbulent times, with mankind and Planet Earth at a turning point, he asks, “What is the actual foundation we can base life upon?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! answers this question, presenting a paradigm shift into Man and Woman Balance, a system of understanding the universe in terms of the fundamental polarities of maleness and femaleness and the balance thereof.

In religious terms, Anderson clarifies, we might say, “If there is a ‘God the Father’ there must also be a ‘God the Mother,’ not a ‘God the Mother’ as a secondary existence to ‘God the Father’ but as an equal and opposite primary existence to ‘God the Father.'” In philosophical terms, “Only [sexual] opposites can unite to then again divide…creating the spiritual lineage of [procreant] love.” This essential balanced interdependence offers a rich and life-enhancing reality all human beings can live by.

In an era in which it is clear our past and current religious and political structures have failed us, Anderson notes that many are confused about which way to turn. He comments, “We are being offered a sexual progressivism through L, G, B, T, Q as well as an existential threat in Islamic radicalism. In the meantime, our own constitutional system of governance and Christian roots seem to comprise a history, so what is the way forward? How are we to move ahead without a foundation based on life itself?”

The Man and Woman Manifesto: What We Believe! asserts that life is the only state of existence between male and female and that love is its one expression. The author further suggests that their every moment/touch is a spiritual resurrection/rebirth. In other words, procreation is not just physical in nature but spiritual as well. With this understanding, concludes Anderson, we may truly “love ye one another.”

He explains, “Love is a good place from which to begin the life endeavor, as Man and Woman Balance can only be an expression of love.” In short, “Man and woman can only love each other, now and forever,” so might not this living reality, both on an individual basis and within the world at large, be the actual foundation from which we can live together?

Anderson cautions, “This is not an easy book, but if you can capture and live its essence, your life will forevermore have purpose.”

About the Author: Christopher Alan Anderson received the basis of his education from the University of Science and Philosophy, Swannanoa, Waynesboro, Virginia. He resides in the transcendental/romantic tradition, that vein of spiritual creativity of the philosopher and poet. His quest has been to define and express an eternal romantic reality from which a man and a woman can together stand in their differences and create a living universe of procreative love. Mr. Anderson began these writings in 1971. The first writings were published in 1985. When asked to describe their overall message, he responded, “Spiritual procreation. Mankind has yet to distinguish the two sexes on the spiritual level. In this failure lies the root of our problems and why we cannot yet touch the eternal together. The message of man and woman balance brings each of us together in love with our eternal other half right now.”

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ

In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

Nassau, Bahamas, October 20th, 2017 — As you look into the face of your fellow man/woman, do you see the image of Christ? In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

“What is the hope of our calling?” asks author Clement Butler. “The Father has already determined our destiny. He wants us to be just like Him. So how do we achieve that life? It involves a journey of transformation and moving from glory to glory. God’s eternal purpose includes not just the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth, but also the development of sons (daughters) who are inheritors of the Kingdom.”

In this, the fourth book in Butler’s “Teacher Series,” he uses Scripture to help us understand God’s purpose through us. It is a high calling, to be a disciple of Christ, which is an extension of The Father, and in this volume, The Image of Jesus Christ, Butler helps readers understand the transformation that must take place in order to develop/mature as sons of God.

This is a companion text to the first book “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which should be read first to truly grasp the full value of Butler’s message. Butler believes that readers must first understand God’s Purpose before we can understand our role in that overall vision. Butler references Romans 8:29 as a primary text for the foundation of his latest book:

Romans 8:29-30
29-30 God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun. (The Message (MSG))

“Readers can take comfort in God’s assurance that He has a purpose and that He requires our heart to fulfil that purpose,” said Butler. “It is a process that involves chastisement, mortification, life beyond the veil, and entering into His rest. It is, therefore, the purpose of this book to detail the journey to this destination, the journey to the image of Christ.”

Proverbs 3:6 reminds us; “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (NKJV) and in his newest book Butler provides instruction to assist us on our journey as we strive to conform to His image and move from glory to glory.

Butler is also the author of recently released “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which is the third in author Clement Butler’s Teacher Series and Volume One in a two-part examination of the creation, foundation and understanding of God’s Kingdom. In this book Butler focuses on what God’s purpose is for humanity and the establishment of His Kingdom. “God’s Eternal Purpose” is available at Amazon.

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in hard cover for $29.95 and $9.95 for the e-book.

New Children’s Singalong Album ‘Let’s Sing!’ From Bay Area Folk Singer and Her Group Now Available in Time for the Holidays

Kathy Sherman has been a professional folk musician for 44 years and a music teacher for nine. She performs in three different folk bands and has released five recordings.

Los Altos, CA, October 21, 2017 — Kathy Sherman has been a professional folk musician for 44 years and a music teacher for nine. She performs in three different folk bands and has released five recordings. So for her sixth album, she drew on all her experiences as a musician and teacher.

“I teach pre-school music and these are songs I do with my students,” says Sherman about her sixth and latest release, a children’s singalong album “Let’s Sing!” recorded with her group the Good Folk Collective. “And they just happen to be some of my favorites.”

The 18-song “Let’s Sing!” available at amazon.com and store.cdbaby.com, features such all-time favorite sing-alongs such as “The Hokey Pokey,” “She’ll Be Comin’ ’Round the Mountain,” “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad,” “How Much is That Doggie in the Window,” and “Teddy Bear’s Picnic.”

But it also includes some lesser-known gems such as the silly “echo” songs,“I Am a Pizza,” and “I Am the Conductor”, “The State Laughs,” which follows​ ​a​ ​joke​ ​and​ ​the​ ​response​ ​it​ ​gets​ ​in​ ​different​ ​states​ ​of the​ ​country (in Tennessee, they say hee, hee hee), and “Jenny​ Jenkins,” an​ ​old​ ​musical​ ​game​ ​where​ ​one​ ​singer​ ​suggests​ ​a​ ​color​ ​and​ ​another​ ​singer must​ ​come​ ​up​ ​with​ ​a​ ​rhyming​ ​word.​

“Kids and parents love these songs. Not only are they fun to sing, they all have a physical component too, clapping, stomping, playing percussion, helping children make important neural connections and giving parents a chance to get some exercise, as well!” says Sherman, “and you’ve gotta have some elements of humor, otherwise it’s not fun.”

The album also has an accompanying “Let’s Sing!” songbook, which includes all of the songs on “Let’s Sing!,” as well as selected songs from her group Hey Mom!’s “Listen to Your Mama” and “Singing on a Star.” Sherman has included simple chords in the same key as on the albums so even beginning musicians can play along on guitar, ukulele, autoharp or piano.

The Let’s Sing! Songbook is available at magcloud.com, both the CD and songbook can also be purchased at GoodFolkSongs.com. The album and songbook will make for excellent holiday gifts for children and parents alike.

“What I’m trying to do is create a musical community,” says Sherman, who wants to preserve some of the great folk songs and traditions for the next generation. “These songs are brand-new to many people, especially if you weren’t born and raised in the U.S. A lot of people have been trying to define folk music. To me it’s community music. It’s songs that everybody knows and everybody can sing, music that has worked it’s way into our DNA.”

In addition to the Good Folk Collective and Hey Mom!, Sherman is also member of the Greek folk duo The Plaka Band. She has recorded and released six albums with the three groups.

Kathy teaches 17 pre-school music classes a week to approximately 300​ ​children​ ​and​ ​parents, with​ ​students​ ​ranging​ ​in​ ​age​ ​from​ ​2​ ​½​ ​​ ​to​ ​5​ ​½ years.​ ​She​ ​also lectures​ ​parents’​ ​groups​ ​on​ ​pre-intellectual​ ​music​ ​education​ ​and​ ​creating​ ​a​ ​more​ ​musical​ ​home environment.

On special occasions, several musician friends get together to perform. One such group is The Burns Supper Club, where we get together on or around January 25th of each year to provide Celtic music for the celebration of the life and works of the great Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759-1796). According to RobertBurns.org, “Burns Suppers range from stentoriously formal gatherings of esthetes and scholars to uproariously informal rave-ups of drunkards and louts.” Our celebration falls somewhere in between.

Fulham Expands Commitment to CEC Title 20 Certification with FireHorse Emergency for Fluorescent and LED Exit Emergency Lighting

Fulham Offers New Emergency Fluorescent Ballasts and New Square Head Emergency Exit Lights for Retrofits and New Construction in California and Oregon.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, continues to release new emergency lighting products that are certified compliant with the California Energy Commission (CEC) Title 20 Code of Regulations for small battery charger systems. The latest CEC Title 20 compliant units include the FireHorse 7 (FH7-UNV-500L-CEC) universal voltage emergency electronic fluorescent ballast and the FireHorse FHEM16 series of adjustable square head LED emergency lights.

The FireHorse 7 universal emergency ballasts are one of the few fluorescent ballasts to comply with CEC Title 20. The FireHorse 7 is the newest emergency fluorescent ballast in the Fulham product line. It delivers 500 lumens of emergency light for 90 minutes or longer and is powered by a rechargeable Ni-Cd battery. The FireHorse 7 can be used to add emergency lighting with or without an AC ballast and without affecting normal luminaire operation.

Many building improvements and upgrade projects require new lighting to make the structure compliant with current building regulations, including fire, light, and safety codes. Rather than adopting a “one size fits all” approach, Fulham offers three FireHorse fluorescent units at 1400, 750, and 500 lumens. Fulham also offers a full line of TLED lamps to replace fluorescent ballasts, although the FireHorse CEC units can power many TLED lamps as well.

“Our distributor and contractor customers are looking to Fulham to help keep them compliant with changing energy efficiency regulations. With the release of the new FireHorse universal emergency ballasts we are offering a CEC-compliant ballast that can save energy in new installations as well,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. “Our FHEM16 emergency lights also are extremely popular because of their versatility, ease of installation, and low cost, and are now assured to meet Title 20 standards.”

The FireHorse FHEM16 LED adjustable square head emergency lights comply with the CEC Title 20 specifications outlined for small-diameter directional lamps, including power consumption of 75 watts or less. They have a rated life of more than 25,000 hours and are equipped with ANSI-compliant or E26 base types. All FireHorse FHEM16 emergency lighting units feature a rechargeable Ni-Cd battery that delivers up to 90 minutes of emergency power. The units feature a universal mount with a pattern knockout in the back for J-box mounting and snap-fit assembly.

The traditional design of the FHEM16 series has made it one of Fulham’s most popular products for emergency lighting. The unit comes factory installed with two 1.15W square LED heads. The units are dual voltage, operating at 120VAC or 277VAC. A remote capable version the FHEM16WRC, is also available. It that is compatible with FHEM10RH and FHEM16RH remote heads. Base units are available in white and black.
