Director Rohan Spong guests on SnowbizNow to discuss his documentary, ALL THE WAY THROUGH EVENING, as does Mimi Stern-Wolfe, one of the subjects of the documentary. When the HIV/AIDS epidemic swept through New York, and indeed the world, in the early 1980s, each were infected and were dead by the early 1990s. After these deaths, Mimi Stern-Wolfe devoted much of her life to The Benson AIDS Series, an annual concert of works by composers who were lost to HIV/AIDS, which she performs on World AIDS Day (December 1st).
Directed by Rohan Spong (whose first feature documentary, T IS FOR TEACHER was acclaimed by two Australian film reviewers as amongst "the best films of 2009"), ALL THE WAY THROUGH EVENING follows Mimi as she prepares for one such concert - a small but proud figure, gallantly rousing a remembrance in the shadow of bustling Manhattan.

Jim and Jennifer are excited to talk with David Randle. David is a musician extraordinaire. In this late teens he was already playing concert dates with Cream, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, Steppenwolf, Buffalo Springfield, Eric Burdon & The Animals, The Byrds, and many others. Fascinated by the compositional elements of music, David studied with two of southern California’s most prominent classical composers. He developed a signature writing style with an ever present weaving of interesting guitar work through his backdrops. After leaving active playing to own a very successful musical instrument store, get married and raise a daughter, the creative call was too great to resist and David began teaching developing artists how to perfect their writing styles while using his abilities to both arrange and produce their music. He began doing a small amount of live playing again, which put him in perfect position to receive “the call.” One day a singer named Rebeca called him inquiring about them working together and she had such an amazing voice and gift for melody writing that the answer was obvious. And they became Rebeca and David: http://www.rebecaanddavid.com/
When it comes to classical music composers, the names of men such as Bach and Mozart come to mind. Are there any women who have done some compositions? New York composer Debra Kaye has honed her craft collaborating with musicians of Manhattan's dynamic new music community. Debra will talk about her debut album, AND SO IT BEGINS as will we feature a few of her pieces.
Spencer Day will be featured at a show taking place in Queens, along with the Queens Symphony Orchestra. It will be an evening of Frank Sinatra. That doens't mean he either looks or sounds like him. We will hear about his jazz singing career.
"Music is a combination of energy and intent. It can immediately change the charge of a room and open portals into different states of being. It can hold space and transport ourselves to regions within that until the moment, have been undiscovered. Music can be a journey, bringing us out of exile. Bringing us home." - Patrick Avalon Tully
