From Morgan Neville, the director of the Oscar®-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom and the critically-acclaimed Best of Enemies, the new film The Music of Strangers:  Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble tells the extraordinary story of an international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma. The film follows this group of diverse instrumentalists, vocalists, composers, arrangers, visual artists and storytellers as they explore the power of music to preserve tradition, shape cultural evolution and inspire hope.

The Silk Road Project is an internationally minded nonprofit founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma in 1998, with a mission to promote innovation and learning through the arts. Taking inspiration from the historical Silk Road trading routes, the Project explores the intersections of cultures, art forms and disciplines. Under the leadership of Mr. Ma and CEO and Executive Director Laura Freid, the Silk Road Project unites the performing arts, education and business, encouraging collaboration among artists and musicians, educators and entrepreneurs. Hyosung is the Corporate Sponsor of The Silk Road Project.

The Music of Strangers represents an exciting opportunity for us to work closely with who we consider to be the triple-threat of Documentary powerhouses – Morgan, Participant and HBO,” said The Orchard’s SVP of Film and TV, Paul Davidson. “Morgan’s film is an inspiring and soulful experience we are proud to be a part of.

The film’s executive producers include Participant Media’s Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann, HBO’s Sheila Nevins, Motto PicturesJulie Goldman, as well as The Silk Road Project’s Laura Freid and co-executive producer Cristin Canterbury Bagnall.

What could be better than being involved in a film that erases differences in the name of music,” commented Nevins, President, HBO Documentary Films.

Music of Strangers is a film about the many ways music brings people together. We are thrilled that HBO and The Orchard are joining us to share this story with the world,” said Neville, Tremolo Productions.

Tremolo Productions is a documentary production company founded by Morgan Neville, specializing in cultural storytelling.

Morgan Neville traveled across three continents to tell the amazing stories of Yo-Yo Ma and these talented ensemble members. We are grateful that his remarkable storytelling so powerfully portrays the ways music, art and culture can connect us to the unfamiliar and create positive change. We can’t wait to share this with audiences near and far,” said Laura Freid, CEO of Silkroad.

Participant is delighted to have such an incredible team on board to deliver Morgan Neville’s outstanding film to audiences in theaters and at home: The Orchard—who we are excited to collaborate with for the first time, and HBO—who we’ve successfully teamed with on 3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets, as well as this year’s Oscar-winner CITIZENFOUR,” said Diane Weyermann, Participant’s EVP, Documentary Films.

The event is produced by the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Lafayette and Eckerstrom Productions.large-2015 Lafayette AWM Festival logo

The 2015 Lafayette Art & Wine Festival will be held on Saturday, September 19 (10am-7pm) and Sunday, September 20 (10am-6pm) in Lafayette, CA.

Here are 9 top reasons why the Lafayette Art & Wine Festival is the East Bay’s best end of summer party:

1. Location: The Festival is held in the heart of beautiful downtown Lafayette, just steps from the Lafayette BART station, near bike trails (complimentary valet bike parking provided), 2 blocks off Hwy 24, and an easy walk/shuttle from complimentary Festival parking.2015-Lafayette-Art-Wine-Festival-Map

2. Continuous Music & Dancing – with no cover charge: 2 Days. 4 Stages. Room to dance to familiar tunes played by 21 of the Bay Area’s best headliner cover bands.

A “sock hop” follows from noon to 1:30pm, with live ’50s music provided by Spinout on Saturday and Dave Crimmen on Sunday.

3. Unique Wine & Beer Offerings at The Party Within The Party: Popular wines, beers and ales are served throughout the Festival footprint, but the real action for connoisseurs happens in the Premium Wine & Craft Beer Pavilion, where there are selections of high-end wines and craft beer that most people never get a chance to taste, including wines from the backyard vineyards of Lamorinda Wine Growers Association members.

4. Delicious Food: Choice is everywhere, including Lafayette’s restaurant row fare. More than 25 of Lafayette’s top restaurants are in the Festival’s footprint, plus there are dozens of other food vendors and Food Trucks that offer everything from hickory smoked pulled pork tacos to crab cakes.

5. Original Fine Arts & Crafts: People from all over the Bay Area come to shop at the Festival’s 260+ local and regional artists’ booths, including the “Local Artists Alley,” which showcases Lafayette, Moraga, and Orinda fine artists, who are members of the Lafayette Gallery and Lamorinda Arts Alliance.

7. Family & Dog Friendly: People move to Lafayette for the family friendly lifestyle, so it’s no surprise that this is a family friendly festival, starting with a large KidZone and Kids’ Stage. There is also plenty for family dogs to see and smell, as well as easy access to Festival water bowls.

8. Budget Friendly: This event is a fundraiser that supports the Lafayette Chamber’s many programs, Lafayette Partners in Education (“LPIE”), and other local non-profits, but attendees don’t have to spend.

LANDS’ END NAMES FEDERICA MARCHIONNI AS CEO

Global Fashion Executive Brings Proven Experience as Visionary Brand-Builder and Broad Leadership Skillset to Drive Growth for Iconic American Brand

Lands’ End, Inc. announced that its Board of Directors has named Federica Marchionni as Chief Executive Officer. Ms. Marchionni comes to Lands’ End from her role as President of Dolce&Gabbana USA Inc. and has succeeded Edgar Huber, who resigned from the Company. Ms. Marchionni will assume the CEO position at Lands’ End and join the Company’s Board of Directors on February 17, 2015, following the completion of her professional commitments to Dolce&Gabbana.

Under Ms. Marchionni’s leadership as President starting in 2011, Dolce&Gabbana USA’s revenues increased significantly. She successfully elevated the positioning of the brand and redesigned strategies for expanding it across multiple channels, target customers and geographic areas. While growing the existing business, Ms. Marchionni oversaw the opening of several key stores – including the 5th Avenue flagship store in New York City as well as stores in other markets including Toronto, Chicago, Aspen and Boston – and also strengthened the brand’s partnership with major U.S. department stores. Working closely with the product development teams, sell-through was also advanced in each category and channel, including online. Prior to that, over the course of a career as a global group director at Dolce&Gabbana that stretches back to 2001, she led business development for business units in more than 100 countries. Ms. Marchionni was also Senior Vice President at Ferrari where she acted as the chief executive of a division that generated an important portion of the company’s worldwide sales. Earlier in her career, Ms. Marchionni held positions of increasing responsibility in product marketing and sales at industry-leading consumer technology and telecommunications companies such as Samsung, Phillips, and Ericsson. She graduated summa cum laude from La Sapienza University of Rome with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration.

In announcing the appointment, Josephine Linden, Chairman of the Board of Lands’ End, said, “We are delighted that Federica Marchionni is joining Lands’ End. She is a multi-talented, visionary business leader with a complete set of creative, strategic and analytical skills to grow a multi-channel apparel brand in a highly competitive and evolving global environment. She has proven product development, retail and international experience, a tremendous passion for success, and a deep network of relationships across the fashion, consumer and retail landscapes. She also fully embraces the principles of quality, value and service on which Gary Comer founded Lands’ End in 1963. We are confident she will build upon the Company’s legacy as a classic American brand with a keen eye toward its future as a global lifestyle brand.

Mrs. Linden continued: “On behalf of the entire Board and Lands’ End organization, we truly appreciate Edgar Huber’s steady leadership prior to and during the spin-off from Sears Holdings Corporation. With annual sales in excess of $1.5 billion, roots more than 50 years deep and a great team behind it, Lands’ End is ready for a new leader to accelerate the realization of the full potential of the brand and drive profitable growth.”

With the successful completion of the spin-off of Lands’ End from Sears Holdings Corporation,” Mr. Huber said, “I have accomplished what I came to achieve at Lands’ End and I look forward to the Company’s success in the future.”

I have long admired Lands’ End’s powerful platform and I am excited to lead this iconic company. I have great respect and appreciation for what the Lands’ End team has accomplished to date, and I look forward to leveraging Lands’ End’s strong foundation to expand the brand into new markets and channels over time while remaining true to the brand’s core values and customer base,” Ms. Marchionni said. “ I join the Lands’ End family with the clear goal of moving the Company forward by working with the Board to identify and pursue growth in key areas, collaborating with and inspiring our people to find new ways to delight customers, and delivering improved financial performance for our shareholders. I cannot wait to get started to take advantage of the significant opportunities ahead.”
