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.

El Museo del Barrio Hosts 50th Anniversary Gala



El Museo Del Barrio Director Patrick Charpenel, El Museo Del Barrio Chair Maria Eugenia Maury, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Commissioner of NYC Department of Cultural Affairs Tom Finkelpearl



Last week, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaimed from the stage of the Plaza Hotel Dia de El Museo Del Barrio at El Museo’s 50th anniversary celebration, May 2, 2019. “The creation of El Museo is one of the moments where history started to change,” said the Mayor as he presented an official proclamation from the City.  This was only one of the surprises in a Gala evening that honored Ella Fontanals-Cisneros, Craig Robins, and El Museo’s founding director, artist Raphael Montanez Ortiz and raised in excess of $1.2 million.

El Museo board chair Maria Eugenia Maury opened the evening with spirited remarks invoking Latina activist Dolores Huerta who said, "Walk the streets with us into history. Get off the sidewalk." The evening was MC’d by WNBC TV Lynda Baquero with nearly 500 guests dancing in black tie. Executive director Patrick Charpenel expressed the feelings of many when he shared, “El Museo del Barrio is a museum created by and for the community in response to the cultural marginalization faced by Puerto Ricans in New York…Today, issues of representation and social justice remain central to Latinos in this country."

Artist Rirkrit Travanija introduced longtime supporter Craig Robins who received the Outstanding Patron of Art and Design Award. Craig graciously shared, “The growth and impact of this museum is nothing short of extraordinary.”  

El Museo chairman emeritus and artist, Tony Bechara, introduced Ella Fontanals-Cisneros who received the Outstanding Patron of the Arts award, noting her longtime support of Latin artists including early support Carmen Herrera, both thru acquiring her work and presenting it at her Miami intuition, Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO).  With her family around her, Fontanals-Cisneros accepted the award elegantly in Spanish.

Sisters Ela Troyano and Carmelita Tropicana Troyano warmly welcomed their friend, Raphael Montanez Ortiz to the stage and read from a message from Chon A. Noriega that noted his importance to the Latinx community as well his remarkable body of work in many genres.  From a seat on the stage the handsome 85 year old artist led guests in his signature audience participation concert first activated in 1966. With the assistance of Executive Director Patrick Charpenel, the entire Plaza Ballroom audience took  white paper bags, wrote on them “whatever garbage or worries they have,” inflated the bags and “popped their worries away.” 

A live auction was conducted by Gabriela Palmieri, Senior Vice President of Sotheby’s, and daughter of legendary jazz artist Eddie Palmieri.  Gabriela made a loving donation on behalf of her mother Iraida Palmieri. Guests enjoyed magnums of Moet & Chandon at every table, danced to Latin music by Avenida B and a special performance by La Voz contestant Manny Cabo.

LongHouse Reserve Celebrates its 28th Season with Rites of Spring: Season Opening


Will Ryman, LongHouse 6 (2019)
LongHouse Reserve is excited to open its 28th season with Rites of Spring on Saturday, April 27 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM.  The gardens will be filled with spectacular displays of flowering trees and showy daffodils that over 30 years have multiplied by hundreds of thousands.  The daffodils are now augmented with great swaths of tulips and other spring blooms making this a season not to be missed.  New art has been installed for the 2019 season and includes extraordinary works by Wendell Castle, Jun Kaneko, Joseph Walsh, Young Jae Lee, and Will Ryman.  LongHouse founder, Jack Lenor Larsen, noted textile designer, author and collector, created LongHouse Reserve on colonial farmland at the edge of East Hampton’s Northwest Woods and opened it to the public in 1992.   This unique outdoor museum and arboreta is one of the most popular cultural destinations on the East End of Long Island.
Making his debut at LongHouse Reserve is Will Ryman who has created a towering, site-specific “Rose” installation on the LongHouse Pyramid Plateau. Stemming from the artist’s internationally acclaimed exhibition, The Roses, 2011 on Park Avenue in New York City, Will Ryman’s monochrome red rose LongHouse 6, 2019 embodies a duality located in the cultural significance assigned to this flower. This romanticized symbol of beauty and perfection is at odds with the sculpture’s exaggerated size, hand worked quality, and the missing petals it has shed around its base. This duality, frequently at stake in Ryman’s work, reveals the imperfect and temporary nature of all things. 


Jun Kaneko’s “Dango” 1996, a gift to LongHouse from the Judith and Gerson Leiber Foundation will take center stage in the Edward Albee Amphitheater and a magnificent bronze bench by Wendell Castle will invite visitors to relax in the gardens.  Rites of Spring will also premiere “Vessels”, an exhibition of stunning ceramics by noted artist Young Jae Lee.   Joseph Walsh, the brilliant furniture designer from Cork, Ireland, has created a site-specific wall shelf for LongHouse, “Enignum Shelf XXXVI” that highlights his mastery of curvilinear forms.
LongHouse Reserve members will enjoy the “perk” of exploring the grounds the 1st Saturday of each month (First Saturdays) 11:00AM-1:00PM.  LongHouse will also offer 15% off on new, renewal and gifts memberships from now until opening day on April 27.

French Heritage Society Presents its Third Annual Book Award



Cheryl Hurley and Caroline Weber


French Heritage Society bestowed its third annual Book Award upon Caroline Weber, author of Proust's Duchess: How Three Celebrated Women Captured the Imagination of Fin-de-Siècle Paris. Gathering at a private club on the Upper East Side last week, the evening began with cocktails before moving into a larger salon for the award presentation and program. "It is our goal to foster Franco-American friendship, amité, and understanding," said Elizabeth F. Stribling, Chairman of the Board of Directors of French Heritage Society. "What better means to learn about France than through books!"

In presenting the award, Jennifer Herlein, executive director of French Heritage, spoke on behalf of Christian Draz, French Heritage Society Book Award Co-Chair and Board Member: “Whatever offense her three society divas may have taken at being used as creative fodder for Proust's satirical fiction, they would surely be highly flattered by the extraordinary lengths to which Caroline went to document the truth of their real and often difficult lives.”  Said Ms. Weber, "I was excited when the French Heritage Society asked me a few years ago to moderate the discussion with their Book Award winner, Luc Sante.  I did not imagine I would be in the other seat - ever. Thank you for this honor.”  

In a staged conversation with Cheryl Hurley, former president of the Library of America, Weber illuminated Proust's milieu with insights culled from her extensive research. 
 
The French Heritage Book Award recognizes and honors a nonfiction work of literary, scholarly or aesthetic distinction that illuminates for the general public either an important element of French cultural or historical patrimony or the considerable and noteworthy influence France, its citizens and its culture have had in shaping American history, thought and culture.

The evening was made possible by Co-Chairs Elizabeth Stribling and Christian Draz; the Book Award Steering Committee, Yann Coatanlem, Janet Desforges, Patricia Forelle, and Clydette de Groot; and the New York Chapter Co-Chairmen, Guy Robinson and Odile de Schiétère-Longchampt. A jury comprised of Anne Poulet, Bruno Racine, and Elaine Sciolino chose Proust’s Duchess unanimously from a shortlist of four non-fiction titles that illuminate elements of French cultural or historical patrimony in interesting ways.

The Vienna Philharmonic Society Holds Exclusive Concert and Dinner

L-R: Ferdinand von Stranz, VPO Chairman Daniel Froschauer, VP Society Chairman Marife Hernandez, VPO General Manager Michael Bladerer, VP Society Board Members Theodora Simons, Sedge Ward, Elizabeth Ingleby, John Hargraves, Max Jahn



The Vienna Philharmonic Society  celebrated with a black-tie concert and dinner in a private club.  Limited to just 150 guests, it was arguably the most elegant event of the current social season, and under distinguished patronage including H.E. Wolfgang Waldner, Ambassador of Austria to the United States and Mrs. Gudrun Faudon-Waldner; H.E. Jan Kickert, Permanent Representative of Austria to the United Nations and Mrs. Latica Tomasic-Kickert; and H.E. Dr. Helmut Boeck, Consul General of Austria to New York and Mrs. Barbara Boehm-Boeck.

Arriving promptly for cocktails every guest was greeted by name by the chairman, Marifé Hernández, and her husband, Joel Bell.  After just 45 minutes the concert began. Marifé’s introduction of the Orchestra made special thanks to all assembled, especially to her Board.  Because of their generosity, The Vienna Philharmonic Society in now a founding donor of the newly created Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Academy in Vienna, committed to training a new generation of classical musicians.  The Society’s participation ensures that a place would be held each year at The Academy for a gifted American student.  

The performance was Brahms’ String Sextet in G Major, Op. 36; one of the master’s most demanding works, and one close to the composer’s heart as it conceals a reference to Agathe von Siebold (with whom he was infatuated) in the first movement. This was followed by a rousing encore, reminiscent of old Vienna.  After thunderous applause, the patrons moved to a magnificent dinner of Quenelle de Brochet, Pan Seared Medallions of Veal in Brandied Morel Sauce served with Bundles of Baby Asparagus and Polenta, and Chocolate Soufflé with Vanilla Gelato.  The music, the flowers, the red calligraphy place cards and menu cards - everything was of an old world perfection not commonly achieved.

Guests included Ambassador Ping Huang, Chinese Consul General to New York, and his wife Mrs. Lilly Zhang, Ambassador Kanji Yamanouchi, Japanese Consul General to New York, Ambassador and Mrs. Andrew Jacovides, Ambassador Donald Blinken, Carnegie Hall Director Clive Gillinson and his wife Anya Gillinson, Arianne Batterberry, Tony Bechara, Bill Bernhard, Giancarla and Luciano Berti, Noreen Buckfire, John Dobkin, Noel Lateef, Pia Lindstrom, William Nitze, Cynthia Polsky, Daisy Soros,  Helene and Hugh Tilney, Barbara and Donald Tober, Svetlana and Herbert Wachtel and Michael Tilson Thomas, who conducted two of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra concerts at Carnegie Hall.

LongHouse Reserve Holds Winter Benefit

James S. Snyder, James Carpenter, Toshiko Mori, Paul Goldberger, Matko Tomicic


LongHouse Reserve's Winter Benefit honored architects Toshiko Mori and Jamie Carpenter, atop the Hearst Tower last Thursday night.  The evening began with cocktails in the East Rooms of the 44thfloor with superb views of the city. Welcoming guests, executive director of LongHouse, Matko Tomicic, joked: "I was thinking about changing the title of the Benefit from winter to spring. I guess winter is over, thank god!"

Longhouse founder, Jack Lenor Larsen, spoke fondly of architect Jamie Carpenter, who designed the Israel Museum: "He was asked to design a real museum, of many buildings, beautifully orchestrated, and interestingly put together. It became a museum that you must visit soon. Jerusalem seems more distant than Europe or Japan. And it's such a handsome city built over thousands of years over the same golden stone... " James Snyder, director emeritus of the Israel Museum, recalled, "We invited Jamie to Jerusalem late in winter," he said. "It happened to be a kind of biblical weather weekend. The sky was intense blue, then there were cumulus clouds, then it snowed, then it rained, then hail. Jamie, whose sensibilities are all about light, got to experience every possible condition."  Jamie Carpenter added, “Glass celebrates nature in many different ways. I'm interested in the characteristics of glass which are a little more abstract and complex than simply transparency. It can communicate information around us."

Dianne Benson, Chairman of the Board, said, "One of the most wonderful aspects of my association with LongHouse and Jack is that I have learned that architecture is not just about a building, or wood, or materials, it's a kind of magic that Jack has introduced us all to." Paul Goldberger joked, "We are celebrating LongHouse in tall house.” He then said, “I have long admired Toshiko Mori's work. Her architecture simultaneously delights with the new, and, yet, at the same time, feels comfortable and almost familiar."  In accepting her award, Toshiko Mori said, “I have known LongHouse for a very long time, since I was a student. Therefore, it is very close to me and it's very interesting.” She also revealed how she had once interviewed  Jamie Carpenter for a job: “As Jamie likes to joke, he didn't get the job but he did get a wife.”

Guests included: Arthur and Diane Abbey, Jacqueline Brody, Richard De Rose, Sherri Donghia, Lee Freund, Sean Kelly, Christopher Latham, Mark and Elizabeth Levine, Eileen O'Kane Kornreich, Sandy and Steve Perlbinder, Lee Skolnick, James Snyder, Michael Steinberg, and Neda Young.

New York, NY: Ambassador Ronald S. Lauder welcomed over 70 guests to his townhouse Monday night in advance of the UN Women for Peace Association’s upcoming Awards Luncheon on March 1, 2019, to be held at the UN Delegates Dining Room.

During the cocktail reception, Ambassador Lauder, a longtime supporter of UNWFPA, delivered welcoming remarks. UNWFPA President Barbara Winston and Luncheon Co-Chair Raymond Kelly, former NYC Police Commissioner and CEO of the Guardian Group, also spoke.

Ambassador Lauder, who hosted with his wife, Jo Carole Lauder, told the crowd that it was especially meaningful to host the event at his childhood home, which once belonged to his pathbreaking mother, Estee Lauder.  

"My mother spent her life lifting women up and empowering them to achieve gretness.  I know everyeone here shares that mission, and I thank you for all that you do to end violence against women", Ambassador Lauder said. 

UNWFPA President Barbara Winston said: “Technology and humanity have to meet in order to provide the world with the courage and ambition to give each person their inalienable rights.”

“The UNWFPA is a vital organization devoted to raising awareness about the violence and indeed the atrocities perpetrated against women throughout the globe,” said Commissioner Kelly.

In addition to Commissioner Kelly, this year’s UNWFPA Awards Luncheon will be co-chaired by philanthropist Alice Tisch, who stood alongside Commissioner Kelly as he spoke. 

This year's Awards Luncheon will honor actor, writer and activist Ben Stiller, activist Leslee Udwin CEO and founder of Think Equal; fashion designed Naeem Khan; and international philanthropists Albert and Deidre Pujols.  UNWFPA will recognize Changemakers and Educators Mark Bracket Ph. D, founding Director of YALE Center for Emotional Intelligence and Robin Stern Ph. D, Co- Founder & Associate Director of Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence.  Together UNWFPA, Yale and Facebook are bringing awareness to the importance of integrating social and emotional well being into schools, families and communities as a pathway to peace around the world.
  
UN Women for Peace Association was founded in 2008 under the patronage of H.E. Mrs. Ban Soon-taek, the wife of former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The organization, which is led by Chair Muna Rihani Al-Nasser and President Barbara Winston, helps to advance the goals of academic and charitable organizations that provide opportunities for women to partake in the global peace-building process through social, cultural, education and women empowerment programs.
