W7 Cosmetics Announces Reuben de Maid as its Newest Brand Ambassador




Last month W7 Cosmetics hosted a celebratory party to announce it's newest brand ambassador, YouTube sensation, 14 year old Reuben de Maid.   Press got front row seats to watch the uber talented 14 year old make up artist in action, as well as check out products from the brand. 

 W7 Cosmetics is a wildly popular brand in the UK that is slowly (and thankfully!) making it's way to the US.  Turns out, W7 offers just about every product known to man for super affordable prices, and impressive quality.  

 The brand has an incredible selection of products that range from eye shadow palettes and primers, to lash curlers, foundations, lipsticks, bronzers and brushes.  Guests were treated to make up trials and got to experience the great quality first hand.  My favorite one that the MUA used was definitely the eye shadow palette Life's a Peach.   

Currently the brand is available mostly on line, but you can also find them in select stores like Century 21, and Walmart. In the meantime, you can shop them here.

P.S. W7 is currently running a pretty sweet sale :p

Lang Lang International Music Foundation Holds Young Scholars Concert at Steinway Hall


Last week the Lang Lang International Music Foundation held its Young Scholars Concert at Steinway Hall in New York City, which showcased some of its most celebrated young talent.   Founded in 2008 by world- class pianist, Lang Lang, the foundation strives to make music a part of every child's life, regardless of their background.  The foundation offers music education programs to children across the world, including the evening's Young Scholars program.  



The concert began with 14 year old Aliya Alsafa performing Mozart, Piano Sonata No. 17 in B flat Major Ravel.  Aliya has performed for several prestigious concert venues including Carnegie Hall, and Merkin Hall.  She has also received a number of awards such as Best Etude at the 107 Seattle International Piano Completion and  First Prize at both the state and regional levels. 



The concert closed with 19 year old Amir Siraj, who began his performance with Mozart, Piano Sonata No. 17 in B Flat Major Liszt.  Amir's performances include the GRAMMY Salute to Classical Music at Carnegie Hall, and at the Joh F. Kennedy Center for teh Performing Arts in Washington D.C.  His resume includes the Grand Prize at the Fidelity Investments Young Arts Competition and First Prize at the Harvard Musical Association.    


"We believe that music has the power to make the world a better place and with the Lang Lang International Music Foundation, we strive to achieve this every day", declared ceo  Leszek Barwinski-Brown, as he welcomed a capacity audience to their first Young Scholars Concert at Steinway Hall. Lang Lang himself chose the performers--- offering a note to the program, "My wife, Gina Alice, and I send our love and support .  You’ll forgive us for not being there as were on our honeymoon in China.”


A disarming talented and stunning Aliya Alsafa, 14, played Ravel, Mozart, Liszt and Morton Gould. With remarkable command.  Amir Siraj 19, now an alumni of the program, played  Mozart, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff.  Currently he’s at Harvard,  studying both piano and astrophysics (and a member of the Steinway Young Artist program).


Among the audience were board members David Hyrck, Kyle Wool, plus his wife Soo Yu.  Also guests Teri Agins, Lady Liliana Cavendish, Joanna Fisher, Stephanie and John Foster, Barrett Frelinghuysen, Michèle Gerber Klein, Luchia Hwong Gordon, Sylvia Hemingway, Kate and Gary Parr, Sana Sabbagh, Klara and Larry Silverstein, Mengmeng Wang, and Victoria Wyman

Leszek Barwinski-Brown closed the concert saying, "Without your friendship, we could have never accomplished and of this" A Moët & Chandon reception followed.

The Knights Hold Annual Benefit Gala



Two weeks ago The Knights  held their annual benefit, a concert and dinner in Tribeca. Mela Hacklish, their board chair, extoled, "To everyone here we offer sincere thanks for your extraordinary partnership and support that empowers our musical innovation. We've many surprises for you tonight!"  and thus the orchestra launching onto a stunning concert that included Mozart, Mendelssohn, Shostakovich as well as contemporary music.  




Pianist Inon Barnantan joined the orchestra on stage with Knights co-founder and conductor Eric Jacobsen welcoming him,  "Inon’s invested in the future of The Knights and what we’re doing". Virtuoso clarinetist Kinan Azmeh performed an original composition, "Wedding" and offered, “Falling in love is one of the true human rights that no one can take away from us. This music I hope is a little like that." Next came a new arrangement of the gospel "I'll Fly Away", led by Christina Courtin who led the audience to sing the refrain. Ending with a performance of  "The Big Noise from Winnetka", The Knights received a standing ovation.
