Andris Nelsons conducts an All-Wagner Program
Event on 2018-04-07 20:00:00

Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde is a hymn to the intense spirituality that accompanies transcendent earthly love. Musically and operatically innovative, it remains a watershed in the history of music; to hear its music live is an unforgettable experience. Andris Nelsons leads an outstanding cast of singers-including the great German tenor Jonas Kaufmann (taking the role of Tristan for the very first time) and the acclaimed Finnish soprano Camilla Nylund-in Act II of the opera, in which the title characters come together under the spell of a love potion, only to be discovered by King Marke, Tristan's uncle and lord, to whom Isolde is betrothed. The concert opens with one of Wagner's few purely instrumental works still heard today, the Siegfried Idyll, which he composed in 1869 and had performed as a surprise birthday gift for his wife Cosima. The "Siegfried" of the title is the couple's son, born the previous June, though Wagner later incorporated some of the Idyll's music into the third of his Ring operas, Siegfried.

Since his sensational 2006 debut at the Metropolitan Opera in La Traviata, Jonas Kaufmann has numbered among the top stars on the operatic horizon. The international press has singled him out as the "new king of tenors" and insiders praise him as the most important German tenor since Fritz Wunderlich.

Hailing from Munich, Kauffman completed his vocal studies there at the local Music Academy and attended master classes with Hans Hotter, James King and Josef Metternich. During his first years at the State Theatre in Saarbrücken, he continued his training with Michael Rhodes in Trier.

After engagements in Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Hamburg and Milan – in Giorgio Strehler's production of Così fan tutte and Fidelio, conducted by Riccardo Muti – Kaufmann moved on to the Zürich Opera in 2001. From there he began his international career, appearing at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in London, Paris Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Berlin State Opera, Teatro alla Scala in Milan, Vienna State Opera, Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Salzburg Festival. In 2010, Kaufmann made his debut at the Bayreuth Festival as the title role in Lohengrin in a spectacular staging by Hans Neuenfels.

Kaufmann is just as internationally in demand in the Italian and French repertoires as he is in German opera. He has sung Massenet's Werther in Paris and Vienna and Cavaradossi in Puccini's Tosca in London, at the Met and La Scala. His intensive characterizations of Don José in Bizet's Carmen and Werther in Massenet's opera took opera fans throughout the world by storm. Kaufmann loves portraying shattered characters, immersing himself in their world and making their thoughts and emotions strikingly believable.

Besides his vocal and musical qualities, it is Kaufmann's total identification with his roles that has been received with such enthusiasm by the press and public. This was certainly the case at his role debut as Siegmund in Die Walküre at the Metropolitan Opera in the spring of 2011. The eagerly awaited new production, masterfully conducted by James Levine and transmitted world-wide on radio and in HD to cinemas, allowed audiences to experience the special quality of Kaufmann's Wagner interpretations in detail: the blend of German expressive power and Italian vocal finesse. When Kaufmann subsequently had a great success performing the title role in Gounod's Faust (a new production that could also be seen in cinemas all over the world), he showed once again his vocal and theatrical versatility.

In 2012, Kaufmann debuted as Bacchus in Richard Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos at the Salzburg Festival. In Salzburg, he was also heard as Don José in the new production of Carmen, conducted by Simon Rattle, and in a performance of Verdi's Requiem, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, which he also performed at La Scala and the Lucerne Festival. In December of 2012, Kaufmann returned to Milan for the opening of La Scala's season in the new production of Lohengrin, conducted by Barenboim and directed by Claus Guth.

2013 was the year of Wagner and Verdi. After the Met's new production of Parsifal and the revival of Don Carlos at the Royal Opera House in London, Kaufmann also portrayed the title role in Don Carlos in Munich and Salzburg. Furthermore, he sang two Verdi roles for the first time in new productions at the Bayerische Staatsoper: Manrico in Il Trovatore and Alvaro in La Forza del Destino. In February and March of 2014, Kaufmann portrayed Massenet's Werther in a new production at the Met, and in June he debuted as Des Grieux in Puccini's Manon Lescaut at the Royal Opera House.

Highlights from 2015 included Kaufmann's debut as the title role in a new production of Andrea Chenier at the Royal Opera House, conducted by Antonio Pappano, his first Radames in Aida in Rome, in a concert performance with Anja Harteros and Pappano, a highly acclaimed double debut in the new production of Cavalleria rusticana / Pagliacci at the Salzburg Easter Festival, a Puccini recital at La Scala, and new productions of Beethoven's Fidelio in Salzburg and Berlioz's La Damnation de Faust at the Paris Opera.

After the great success of his solo album of evergreens from the late Twenties and early Thirties (Du bist die Welt für mich), Kaufmann released his new album of Puccini arias (Nessun dorma) in September of 2015. He performed some of those arias at the legendary "Last night of the proms" in the Royal Albert Hall on September 12th.

In Munich's new production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger, which premiered in May of 2016, Kaufmann sang the role of Walther von Stolzing on stage for the first time. After his South American tour debut in August of 2016, with concerts and recitals in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Lima and Santiago de Chile, the tenor will prepare the title role in Otello at the Royal Opera House in London (June 2017).

Kaufmann's versatility as an artist is documented on a number of CD's and DVD's in performances of such works as Lohengrin, Walküre, Parsifal, Königskinder, Ariadne auf Naxos, Don Carlos, Tosca, Andrea Chenier, Adriana Lecouvreur, Werther and Carmen. His solo albums "Verismo", "Wagner" and "Verdi" were bestsellers only a few weeks after being released. In 2011, Kaufmann was presented with the coveted Opera News Award in New York. An article in "Opera News" heralded this selection with the words: "His intensity and elegance, the smoothness of his voice and his body language, combined with his musicality and his glowing appearance make him the very definition of a 21st century opera star." Shortly afterwards, Kaufmann was named a "Chevalier de l'Orde de l'Art et des Lettres" by French culture minister Frédéric Mitterand. Kaufmann has been selected several times as Singer of the Year by the classical music magazines Opernwelt, Diapason and Musical America, as well as by the juries of Echo-Klassik and the inaugural International Opera Awards (London 2013).

Jonas Kaufmann is also a familiar figure internationally on the concert and recital platforms. He regards art song interpretation as "The Royal Class of Singing", since this genre calls for considerably more finesse and differentiation than any other vocal discipline. His partnership with pianist Helmut Deutsch, with whom he has worked as far back as his student days in Munich, has proven itself in countless concerts, including one on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera on October 30, 2011. This was the first solo recital given at the Met since Luciano Pavarotti's back in 1994. View biography in full page >

After completing his training as a music and German teacher, Georg Zeppenfeld went on to study concert and operatic singing at the Academies of Music in Detmold and Cologne, under the guidance of Professor Hans Sotin. After his first operatic engagements, which took him to the Municipal Theatre in Münster and to the Bonn Opera, he was engaged by the Sächsische Staatsoper Dresden (Semperoper) in 2001 and has been a member of the ensemble ever since.

Performing with such renowned conductors as Myung-Whun Chung, Daniele Gatti, Fabio Luisi, Kent Nagano, Peter Schneider, Marcello Viotti, and Leif Segerstam, Zeppenfeld has been able to develop an extensive repertoire of predominantly serious bass roles from various periods and styles. Among them are Monteverdi's Seneca/L'INCORONAZIONE DI POPPEA, and Mozart's Sarastro, Commendatore, Figaro, Bartolo, and Don Alfonso, as well as Verdi's Padre Guardiano/LA FORZA DEL DESTINO, Sparafucile/RIGOLETTO, Zaccaria/NABUCCO, Banquo/MACBETH, and Philipp II/DON CARLO, Wagner's Fasolt/DAS RHEINGOLD, Veit Pogner/DIE MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG, Landgraf Herrmann/TANNHÄUSER, Gurnemanz/PARSIFAL, König Heinrich/LOHENGRIN, and König Marke/TRISTAN UND ISOLDE, Mussorgsky's Pimen/BORIS GODUNOV, and Dvo?ák's Water Sprite/RUSALKA.
Guest appearances have taken him to the leading opera houses of Germany, such as Hamburg, Berlin and Munich, and to international music centers including Amsterdam, Antwerp, Luxemburg, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris and Vienna as well as New York, San Francisco, Chicago, and more. He made his debut in 2010 at the Bayreuther Festspiele in the role of König Heinrich/LOHENGRIN and returned in 2011 as Veit Pogner/DIE MEISTERSINGER VON NÜRNBERG (recorded with the BSO under the baton of Marek Janowski). After his debut in the role of Philebos/DER KÖNIG KANDAULES in 2002, he has regularly appeared at the Salzburg Festival in operatic, lied, and oratorio performances alike. In summer 2012, he returned to Salzburg as Sarastro in a new production of DIE ZAUBERFLÖTE, conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. At the Glyndebourne Festival, Zeppenfeld appeared in the role of König Marke. In 2005, he sang Sarastro in a new production at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden; in 2007, he made his triumphant U.S. debut at the San Francisco Opera House in the same role, which he also sang at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 2009 and at the Wiener Staatsoper in 2011.

Among his recent highlights are his debut at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, where he sang König Heinrich in a new production of Richard Wagner's LOHENGRIN, as well as guest performances at La Scala di Milano in the role of Commendatore/DON GIOVANNI, followed by Landgraf Herrmann/TANNHÄUSER.

Highlights of the 2011/12 season include Peneios in Vienna, Sarastro in Munich, Barcelona and at the Salzburger Festspiele as well as Gurnemanz in Lyon, and others.
The 2012/13 season takes him to Antwerp, Gent and Luxembug in the role of Gurnemanz, and to Hamburg as Landgraf Hermann and König Heinrich. In Dresden, Georg Zeppenfeld will appear in his major role of Sarastro as well as in the roles of Rocco/FIDELIO, Daland/DER FLIEGENDE HOLLÄNDER and Zoroastro in Händel's ORLANDO.

In addition to his operatic engagements, Georg Zeppenfeld also pursues an active international career as a concert singer. In particular, the works of Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven as well as the great late Romantic oratorios have given him the opportunity to sing in many of Europe's leading concert venues.

Recent engagements include concerts with the Munich Philharmonic as well as the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Christian Thielemann, Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Pierre Boulez, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig under Riccardo Chailly, Concentus Musicus Wien under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Filarmonica della Scala under Kurt Masur, Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, Orchestre National de France, Sächsische Staatskapelle Dresden and other leading orchestras which allowed him to expand his stylistic spectrum and by that to accentuate his immense vocal versatility. In Summer 2012, Zeppenfeld sang Beethoven's 9TH SYMPHONY with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in Birmingham, at the Lucerne Festival and the Beethovenfest in Bonn; in November 2012 he returned to his University in Detmold for a recital.

As we go through our lives, we consistently hear there is a direct correlation between success and healthy living that cannot be ignored. In other words, by not living healthy on the journey to success, we may cut short many opportunities or outcomes which would have otherwise been fruitful had we paid attention to a very valuable resource – our health.

You are encouraged to examine each topic below to determine if there are weaknesses in your health success plan. If we carefully look at what actions we can take on our journey to success, perhaps the road can be made a little bit easier.

1. Read nutrition labels to be sure that the ingredients you and your family are consuming are pure. Artificial ingredients, consumed consistently will have a detrimental affect on your body. When in doubt, throw it out.

2. Lose Weight so your body can properly use the fuel you feed it. By being overweight, all body systems have to work twice as hard. Think of it like this. What happens when you try to carry someone who is of equal weight to you, on your back? Your heart races, your joins are burdened, you become fatigued.

3. Keep your mental and spiritual well being intact by guarding your own surroundings and thoughts. The bottom line is, crap in equals crap out. Toxic people should not be allowed to enter your space and the same goes with information. If allowed, toxic people and information can destroy a person’s self-worth and bring down a very critical resource on the road to success.

4. Find time for exercise every single day. Engage in an activity you enjoy and keep it up. Your body will thank you.

5. Weekly recreation and fun is essential to clearing out the cobwebs and reset the brain/work connection. Enjoyment and pleasure allows us to congratulate ourselves for working hard on our goals.

6. Build strong relationships with family and friends. A sense of community and trust between individuals brings us acceptance, love and value to our lives. Without community, our journey to success doesn’t seem to have much meaning.

7. Take care of your health. By developing a preventative maintenance routine like visiting our physician, dentist, dermatologist we can help to manage and find problems before they become critical. An MD can catch hypertension, diabetes, asthma and other diseases before you do. A dentist can help you keep a pretty smile and prevent gum disease by guiding you towards a more consistent daily dental brushing/flossing regiment.

8. Lastly, but not least, don’t smoke and limit your alcohol intake. Smoking is probably one of the worst things you can do for your body because the toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke triples your risk of getting lung cancer. You also risk developing very serious heart disease and breathing problems.

By following the tips above, you are on your way to better health and productivity on your road to success.

The New Wave

It was 10.30 am, I was standing in the windswept wastelands of Pacific Quay, soon to be super-tech development under the shadow of the SECC’s great shell. In the corner of this semi-landscaped field stands Four Winds Pavilion; spot on as the location for Beat 106 FM HQ. A freshly converted tram-shed that emits “bright, young and trendy”, its brand new inhabitants hope that Beat 106 FM, the radio station will do the same.

It burst live onto the airwaves at 1.06 pm, Friday November 19, 1999. Station’s Head of Music, here in the the eye of the storm, still recovering after a tempestuous weekend; the station;s first on air. Since he moved back up north from London and Radio One 10 weeks previous, life has been pretty much non-stop; now that his baby’s up and running, he already seeing what can be done to make it better. born of an idea that formed in the minds of, among others, Ewan McLeod, Stuart Clumpas (head honcho at DF Concerts and King Tuts) and Wilkinson himself, over two years ago, that weekend’s long-overdue launch must be making each and every one of them a proud father.

It may have been a turbulent birth here at Four Winds Pavilion, but to the public there was no more than a warm welcoming gust of good music, intelligent presenters and a sense that something better was coming to Scotland’s airwaves.

“We wanted to prepare the ground”, said Richard. They didn’t want to blow all their funding on a big gimmicky bang only to fade away a month or so later. “We couldn’t compete with the sort of things Radio so, we just let things tick over.: The exclusive Beat 106 gigs and club nights at the end of January, consolidating the station as the best new contender for Scottish Radio’s crown since… well, a long time.

Wilkinson himself himself rolled off the Glasgow University production line with an ordinary degree in Electronics and Music, a course that didn’t excite him much; apart from one occasion sin first year. He met an art school girl in one of his classes – “this is a really sad confession” – and followed her to a Guardian meeting. He stuck with the journalism (the relationship must not have happened then, eh?), and “started writing really crap record reviews”. One thing led to another and in 1995, following the lead of Sweet FM and Ton and a Half (the Art School station, named after its 150-year anniversary), he set up SubCity radio with a £20,000 grant from the SRC. Some may know the rest as history but here’s a brief summary. SubCity, operating on the 28-day Restricted Service Licence, won the Radio One award for best student radio station in November 1996, and in Febuary 1997 Steve Lamacq and John Peer broadcast Radio One from SubCity, alongside Richard and his pals; a formative experience for them all. :Steve had had a few ciders, and we were in their hotel. I was being my “I’m so against playlists’ self… I just want people to come in, play whatever records they want, and try to develop their on-air style. One thing Lamacq said to me was that, doing student radio, I was in such a fortunate position, to not be restrained, and that what I was doing was one of the biggest luxuries”.

From this luxurious position, he headed southwards after a stint at T in the Park, to spend a year and a half braving the perils of early breakfast shows, and the hell that is mainstream drivetime radio, all at Radio One itself. He doesn’t rule out ever heading back down that way, but for now Beat 106 is what he was made for, its seems. “It;s been fantastic.”

And so to the future; the aim is not to create a “tartan Radio One” but something that can fill the gap in the Scottish – and for that matter British – market. Wilkinson breaks out the music industry weekly’s singles chart, scoring off at least five of the top ten that would not receive airplay at 106; that would not receive airplay at 106; “Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Five, Shania Twain,…Westlife” 9this last uttered with pure contempt). The key idea here is “heavy rotation but no “pop” element…It’s a national radio station, we don’t have the luxury of being too out there.” The specialist side of things is, nevertheless, well catered for, with the weekends being practically devoted to dance (including Slam on Friday nights and the Jengaheads on a Sunday), and Jim Gellatly heralding a “more upbeat and accessible evening session” from 7pm until 10pm. Monday to Thursday. Gellatly is the man for you young band hopefuls out there – his “personal interest” according to Wilkinson, being Scottish acts. But like the bedroom DJs Beat 106 hope to uncover, you’ll have to make the effort to get hear; “obviously, we’d rather the talent came to us,” says Richard. I asked if SubCity would be involved in this grassroots side of things: “co-existence-wise, there has to be a recognised filtration system, a way of giving budding DJ talent the opportunity to make it.”

As Richard says: “…it’s a complete evolution process, and a case of being aware of what is not being played and what is not being represented. It’s about being inclusive rather than exclusive, it’s about making people feel welcome,” judging by the storm on the airwaves which the station has already whipped up, all this talk may be more than just hot air.

Our Last Night
Event on 2018-04-03 18:00:00
with I The Mighty, Don Broco, Jule Vera
By standard definition the word "evolution" means a process of change in a certain direction. In life, people, cities, nature, art and music among other things go through their own evolutionary cycles, constantly moving forward and continually changing. New Hampshire based melodic-metal outfit Our Last Night has experienced their own such growth over the past several years. Through experience, methodically honing their craft and long arduous touring, Our Last Night has emerged matured and seasoned with their self-defining sophomore album 'We Will All Evolve.'To understand their development you have to go back a few years. Our Last Night was conceived outside the conventional scene in the sleepy town of Hollis, New Hampshire on the outskirts of Boston in 2004. After a recording an EP later that year, the band cemented its current lineup in 2006 with brothers Matt Wentworth (guitar/vocals) and a then sixteen year old prodigious growler Trevor Wentworth (vocals), Colin Perry (guitar), Alex "Woody" Woodrow (bass) and Tim Molloy (drums). Individuality and shear skill led Epitaph Records owner and president Brett Gurewitz to sign the band in 2007 and release their debut full-length album, 'The Ghost Among Us,' in 2008.Since 2008, Our Last Night has built a core army of fans. Not through flashy persona, fame fueled online gossip or monotonous scene imagery, but through their music and touring alone. Letting the music speak for itself has helped the band transcend boundaries and created limitless room for growth. Our Last Night entered the studio in late 2009 with producer Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Versa Emerge) to record 'We Will All Evolve'. After a month long recording session and additional mixing by David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Set Your Goals) the album was completed and ready for release in May 2010. Exploding with depth and maturity, 'We Will All Evolve' blends Trevor's harsh, aged-to-perfection growls perfectly with Matt's melodious, calming vocals over his and Colin's progressive, breakneck-metal driven guitars, Woody's heavy hitting bass and Tim's pummeling drums. Ripping through thirty-seven plus minutes of meticulously written melodic mayhem with tracks like the furious first single, "Elephants," the indisputably catchy "The Air I Breath," and the bouncy pop-metal hybrid "Into the Future," Our Last Night break out of their cocoon riff by riff, chorus by chorus rising above the limits of a so called scene. With plans to tour in support of the new album throughout 2010 including dates on the Vans Warped Tour, Our Last Night's evolution continues as the band feeds off of experience and the incessant need to create and grow.

The Return of The Hates with Goat, Lizzie Boredom, and Room 101
Event on 2018-02-03 22:00:00

Yes, we can now confirm it.  As first reported by The Chronicle's eagle eyed  Adrew Dansby, The Hates are returning!

"The sign pictured above was easy enough to miss, being nondescript and DIY befitting one of the city's most beloved bands. But there it was just the same at the corner of Farnham and the Southwest Freeway feeder road.  The Hates are returning. Apparently Feb. 3 at Rudyard's.  The show will be a welcome return for the punk band, especially after a trying year. Hates frontman Christian Kidd had shoulder surgery in January, which is a heavy lift for a guitarist under any circumstances. Then later this year he was diagnosed with Stage 3 squamous cell carcinomaI'd missed the announcement last month that his cancer was in remission, which is very good news. And now it appears he'll soon be back to playing short, sharp classic punk rock songs." – Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle, Friday, November 24, 2017



The Hates (Houston, TX)


The Hates has been called "Houston's first and last punk band", and with over thirty years of blood, sweat, and that familiar mohawk, those words may be more true than their author ever knew. From his very first live show in 1978, Christian Arnheiter has steered this legendary band through decades of disco, pop, new wave, hair bands, hip-hop, crossover country, and now the newest fad of tribute bands to keep punk rock alive.

In a time when many early eighties groups are getting back together to play reunion shows, the Hates have the distinction of being the oldest continuously performing unsigned punk band. And despite the love/hate relationship the local music scene has had with punk rock over the years, the Bayou City will always be their home.

Eye wash Stations are among the most important safety fixtures in facilities where hazardous debris and chemicals can get into people’s eyes and harm them. If a person gets a hazardous substance in his or her eye, the station will immediately deliver a stream of water to the eyeball and wash the hazardous fluid or debris out of the eye socket.

Sometimes only seconds are available for the person to reach the station and rinse the eye before serious, or even permanent, damage is done. Because this is such a time critical issue, eye wash stations must strictly comply with a number of safety codes, among which are ANSI z358.1-2004 and OSHA codes.

They must also be easy for workers to locate, even if they have been partially blinded by something that has gotten in their eyes. For this reasons, fixtures are tested and tagged much like fire extinguishers so there will be no doubt as to their location, and no delay in getting to the station.

There are a number of facilities and organizations that use eye wash stations. Factories install them anywhere dust or chemicals could get in workers’ eyes. Chemical plants also install them anywhere liquids or strong fumes can irritate and burn eyes. Laboratories must use them to sanitize eyes exposed to experimental chemicals and substances.

Hospitals use them for sanitizing eyes that may have been exposed to fluids or chemicals related to patient care. Dentists must also use them because tooth debris can get into eyes and damage tissue if not washed out.

Not only do these emergency relief stations protect human welfare, but they also save organizations millions of dollars each year by averting workman’s compensation claims and possible lawsuits. They also help architects and builders meet code by ensuring that the work environment will be as safe as possible even in situation where things can and sometimes do go terribly wrong.

Most of the organizations above are required by law to install eye wash stations. There are many different designs to choose from, including, but not limited to, the following styles:

Wall Mount
Wall mounted units look much like lavatories and spray water upward. They are usually activated by a side handle

The pedestal design is intended to save space in close quarters. Unit activates by a large, high-profile push handle. Water pressure ranges from 30-90 PSI.

Cabinet Mount
The eye wash station actually resides in a recessed cabinet fitted into a wall. This is a super space saver for very small areas.

Swing Down
This is another cabinet mount design where the spray mounts stand vertically flush with the cabinet while not in use. To activate, the user swings the station down so the water can jet upward into the eyes.

Drench Showers
These units stand upright in places that cannot hold wall mounted units. They provide a deluge of water when the operating handle is pulled. Persons using this type of eye wash fountain stand under the water stream so both the eyes and face are cleansed of hazardous material.

Lab Eye Wash Stations
Some designs mount to standard and gooseneck faucets. The water is diverted from the faucet to the station heads when the unit is activated.

Portable Eyewashes
For places where workers move around a lot, or where permanent fixture housing is impractical, a variety of portable stations are available for emergency use.

Wall mount units are also manufactured in a number of barrier free designs. Barrier free simply means that the unit is specifically designed with ADA compliant features, including a minimum of 30 PSI water pressure, are required features of these product lines.
