Net proceeds will benefit One World Symphony's Community Music Program -- a program which enables students and parents who would otherwise not be in a position to afford classical concerts to obtain tickets to attend live performances during the One World Symphony season, such as our upcoming Halloween program.

Sail the open seas on the first leg of our season, venturing to the dramatic coasts of Ireland and Scotland.

Vaughan Williams's gripping one-act music drama Riders to the Sea is an emotional response to the wonder of the natural world, a losing battle with the sea which tyrannizes the lives of North Atlantic islanders. Mendelssohn guides us into Fingal's Cave -- an attraction that has provoked fascination and awe in many tourists -- in his Hebrides Overture. The piece echoes not only the sea waves, but depicts the vastness of the cave and its isolation from the rest of the world. One of Mahler's most profound and restrained songs, "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen" ("I have become lost to the world") expresses how loss and love coexist in a world of weariness and uncertainty.

One World Symphony continues to embrace the diversity of contemporary culture by performing Björk's emotionally charged New World (heard in the film Dancer in the Dark) in a world premiere orchestration for vocal rock band and symphony orchestra. Paulo Coehlo's enchanting novel provides the inspiration for Hong'sFrom The Alchemist, which traces the wayfarer's journeys -- through all obstacles, to learn to listen to one's heart and realize one's destiny.

Performance length: 80 minutes without intermission

How does your garden grow...

I bought some new seeds yesterday for my "garden". The seeds are for the following: Delphinium, Lupine, Columbine. They're pretty flowers but not normally what I would have picked out. I liked the fact that they were perennials and appeared relatively hearty. They only thing is that the delphinium and the lupine appear to be huge once fully grown. I'm going to have to get some new pots and more soil. We'll see how this all goes.

Join One World Symphony's all Russian program, awakening the depths
of passion and obsession. The 1996 film Shine suggested that the ferocious
demands and difficulties of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor 
(1909) plunged the protagonist into madness. By popular demand, New York
pianist Christopher Johnson returns to One World Symphony as the featured
soloist to showcase the piece's titanic range -- from imposing drama to
quicksilver wit to tender lyricism. Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, based on
Aleksandr Pushkin's novel, is devoted to the intense relationship between
art, life, and reality through both Tatyana's and Onegin's single-minded
and tragic fervors. Does life imitate art far more than art imitates life?



The hair-weave saved her life

MYFOX NATIONAL - Who needs body armor when you got a hair weave? A Missouri woman is thanking her hairstylist for saving her life after her gun-toting ex-boyfriend allegedly shot at her. She survived the attack with just a headache after one of the rounds was stopped by her hair weave.

"In the back of my head, it was like bam! That's how it felt. It was hot, you could feel it," 20-year-old Briana Bonds said.

The police found the spent slug tangled in her hair, and say her weave prevented it from penetrating her skull.

"I've been wearing it for years. I've invested a lot of money into this weave. It saved my life. It saved my life," Bonds said.

The shooting happened as Bonds was pulling into a convenience store. She said she saw her former boyfriend parked nearby but didn't realize he was about to open fire. As she started to drive away, she said her ex, Juan Kemp, walked up to her car and started shooting.

"One of [the bullets] hit the back of my head. Luckily, it didn't go through because the back of my wig. My wig had stopped it. It was hanging in my hair. It was about this small, scrunched up."

Bushy Coasters

So the NY Times had a series of George W. pictures on the front page not to long ago. Being a very liberal minded and creative person, I though what better way to show my contempt for the dumbest man in history than to use his face as a coaster. Bushy Boy will forever protect my table not from weapons of mass destruction, but from icey cold and wet beverages.

p.s i apologize for posting this pic everhwere. i am truly very proud of my art!!
