The City Parks Foundation (CPF) is the only independent, nonprofit organization whose mission is to offer programs in public parks throughout the five boroughs of New York City. The organization is dedicated to invigorating and transforming parks into dynamic, vibrant centers of urban life through sports, arts, community development and education programs for all New Yorkers. Its programs and community building initiatives — located in more than 350 parks, recreation centers and public schools across New York City — reach 425,000 people each year. Our ethos is simple: we believe thriving parks reflect thriving communities.

SummerStage, a program of City Parks Foundation, is New York’s largest free outdoor performing arts festival. SummerStage annually presents more than 100 performances in 16 parks throughout the five boroughs. With performances ranging from American pop, Latin, world music, dance and theater, SummerStage fills a vital niche in New York City’s summer arts festival landscape. Since its inception 32 years ago, more than six million people from New York City and around the world have enjoyed SummerStage.

This year, SummerStage will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the beloved Charlie Parker Jazz Festival, New York City’s annual salute to the eponymous late saxophonist. The festival, which each year coincides with Charlie Parker’s birthday, takes place uptown in Harlem’s historic Marcus Garvey Park and downtown in Tompkins Square Park, across the street from the apartment Parker called home. This year, the festival has been extended to four days and will include Emmy Award-winning tap dance virtuoso Jason Samuels Smith, world-renowned Anat Cohen Tentet, jazz master Lee Konitz Quartet, slow-funk Terri Lyne Carrington and Social Science, reverend drummer Louis Hayes, young American vocalist Charenee Wade, Grammy nominated Joshua Redman Quartet, modern jazz creative voice Lou Donaldson, saxophonist Tia Fuller of the all-female band touring with Beyoncé, vocalist Alicia Olatuja, and more.

SummerStage will also expand its family-friendly pre-show workshop offerings this season to include dance classes, beatboxing lessons, and introductions to DJing and Latin percussion. These interactive workshops will take place prior to select SummerStage shows throughout the season, and all ages are encouraged to come out to the park early to participate. To kick off the season, SummerStage will host a DJ lesson from Scratch DJ Academy and a beatboxing tutorial with renowned beatboxer Exacto before the Digable Planets performance in Coffey Park. Other workshops will include salsa dance lessons in St. Mary’s Park and a poetry class in Marcus Garvey Park.

City Parks Foundation is dedicated to providing every New Yorker with access to excellent, culturally relevant performing arts experiences in their home communities. Our SummerStage festival brings outstanding artists from genres across the globe directly to city parks across the five boroughs, all free of charge, making those parks community and cultural centers,” said Heather Lubov, Executive Director of City Parks Foundation.

SummerStage will kick off its first free show of the season with performances from the legendary Mavis Staples and contemporary blues artist Toshi Reagon in Central Park on June 3rd. Staples will lead a powerful vocal showcase of rock, blues, gospel and R&B. Digable Planets will reunite to open the citywide SummerStage run with a rare performance in Coffey Park in Brooklyn on June 21st. New York rap icon KRS-One and DJ Chuck Chillout will also perform in Coffey Park on June 25th and dynamic emcee Jadakiss will take the mic at Crotona Park on August 6th.

The Wines & Spirits Business Group recorded organic revenue growth of 13% in the first quarter of 2017. Champagne volumes increased by 7% over the period. Europe and the US markets continued to grow. Hennessy cognac saw volumes increase significantly which could impact the availability of stocks for the rest of the year.

The Fashion & Leather Goods Business Group achieved organic growth of 15% in the first quarter of 2017. Louis Vuitton achieved a good start to the year, driven by creative momentum in all of its businesses. The recent Autumn-Winter show in the Marly courtyard at the Louvre was very well received. Fendi continues its good performance, supported by its leather and ready-to-wear lines. Céline, Kenzo, Loewe, and Berluti showed progress. Givenchy announced the arrival of a new Artistic Director. Marc Jacobs continued its product lines changes and its restructuring. Rimowa, which recently joined the LVMH Group, will be consolidated as of the second quarter.

In Perfumes & Cosmetics, organic revenue growth was 12% in the first quarter of 2017. Parfums Christian Dior recorded good growth with the success of its make-up and the continued vitality of its perfumes J’adore and Sauvage. At Guerlain, the launch of the new women’s fragrance Mon Guerlain, embodied by Angelina Jolie, was a highlight of the quarter. Parfums Givenchy benefited from the success of its lipstick lines, which had rapid development in Asia. Kat Von D, launched exclusively in January at Sephora in France, is growing well. Maison Francis Kurkdjian is joining the LVMH Group.

The Watches & Jewelry Business Group recorded organic revenue growth of 11% in the first quarter of 2017. Bvlgari gained market share and continued to innovate with new models in its emblematic jewelry lines. TAG Heuer successfully launched its new Connected Modular 45 watch. Several innovations presented by LVMH’s watch brands at the Baselworld watch fair were given an excellent reception, including a new edition of the Autavia by TAG Heuer, the new Octo Finissimo Automatic, and Serpenti Skin watches by Bvlgari and the Defy El Primero 21 by Zenith.

In Selective Retailing, organic revenue growth was 11% in the first quarter of 2017. Sephora gained market share around the world and continues to record revenue growth. The US market is growing well, China confirmed the trend already observed at the end of 2016. Momentum at DFS in Asia improved while the T Gallerias opened in Cambodia and Italy in 2016, continued their development.

In a particularly uncertain environment, LVMH will continue to focus its efforts on developing its brands, maintain strict control over costs and target its investments on the quality, excellence, and innovation of its products and their distribution. The Group will rely on the talent and motivation of its teams, diversification of its businesses and good geographical balance of its revenue to reinforce, once again in 2017, its global leadership position in luxury goods.

During the quarter and to date, no events or changes have occurred which could significantly modify the Group’s financial structure.

The Viceroy Hotel Group Creates A Sensation With Grand Unveiling Of Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai

Global Modern Luxury Hospitality Group Makes History With Stunning New Beachfront Resort

This past weekend, the Viceroy Hotel Group (VHG) raised the curtains to unveil Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai, a stunning beachfront resort at the center of Dubai’s thriving hospitality landscape. Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai is home to 477 rooms and suites, including 352 guestrooms, 85 suites and 40 hotel apartments located across 16 floors. Designed by Yabu Pushelberg and NAO Taniyama and Associates, this Icon Collection masterpiece showcases sweeping, unobstructed views of the surrounding city, from the Dubai Marina to the Burj Khalifa. The arrival of the Viceroy Hotel Group in Dubai marks the modern luxury hospitality group’s second foray into the UAE, bringing a fusion of California cool with Dubai sensation.1 (1)

Preparation for the opening of Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has been an unforgettable journey,” comments Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotel Group. “I remember my very first meeting with Kabir Mulchandani of SKAI Holdings, the developer, owner and visionary behind the entire development, and now, four years later, we have opened an incredible new experience for Viceroy guests, one where Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai has redefined modern luxury hospitality in this vibrant destination. I am extremely proud of General Manager Mikael Svensson, and the entire Viceroy team for how they have launched this incredible hotel.”

Viceroy Palm Jumeirah Dubai‘s glass cube structure creates a sense of anticipation. At center, a first-of-its-kind glass cube towers at 15 meters by 15 meters, an engineering feat. The cube seemingly floats in front of the hotel, allowing natural light to flood in and provides a direct view through to the resort’s runway like 60-meter pool, the ocean and beyond.
