    The Week In Reviews - Sun Soul Orchestra

    in Music

    Sun Soul Orchestra is an inspired project that features a rotating collection of artists performing original music and covers arranged by Stevo Théard and Ginger Murphy. Their debut album, What Matters Most has been a labor of love over the past 5 years and finally releases worldwide, physically and digitally on April 28th, 2015. On the surface it would seem that Los Angeles, California based Stevo and Ginger could not come from more disparate planets in the musical universe. Ginger came up in the highly structured, extremely regimented world of classical music training, while Stevo got most of his training on the job – at first playing nightclubs and gigging locally, then graduating into the world of international touring and recording.

    Leadership: How to conduct your orchestra

    in Business

    One of my mentors who was a great leader in my eyes, knew just how to inspire me. He told me he couldn’t motivate me that my motivation was within and it was his job to remove the obstacles between me and my motivation. This was very impactful for me and I use this as the basis in my coaching. In my mind Leadership is more like coaching. It is knowing how to inspire and bring out the best in others through recognizing their skills and abilities, enabling them and supporting them in removing the obstacles in their way.  Leadership is at the crux of productivity. That is self leadership as well as leadership of a team. Leaders do need to lead by example. When leadership fails, the team is less effective and efficient and can cost the organization significant sums in lost profits that result from direct and indirect costs.


    Think of your team as a group of musicians. Each one plays beautifully on their own when playing the instrument of their choice. Look at the power that group of musicians has together as they become an orchestra. That is where magic is made as they play together seamlessly. Today we will look what a conductor has to teach about leadership.


    Our Guest: Hugh Ballou


    Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how big or how small. He brings a wealth of experience as a prominent conductor of musical ensembles to his innovative leadership approach.


    He is author of multiple books on Transformational Leadership and works as executive coach, process facilitator, and strategist. As a powerful motivational speaker, he teaches the fine art of leadership employed every day by musical conductors.

    PMP: Bone Poets Orchestra with Christopher Bingham & Sue Tinney

    in Spirituality

    Christopher Bingham and Sue Tinney of Bone Poets Orchestra join RevKess and KaliSara for a conversation about their musical career with Bone Poets Orchestra, formerly Gaia Consort. RevKess has been anticipating this interview for a long time and hopes that the listeners have as well. Belladonna Smiles launched the new band name, since then BPO has rereleased Vitus Dance and two original albums, Atheist Anthems and Ecstasy in the Ruins.


    From the bio page on the Bone Poets website: After two acoustic solo albums, Bingham and his wife, Sue Tinney, started the seminal Pagan band, Gaia Consort in 1997. Pagans loved it, but after four critically acclaimed records, it was time to expand the audience. So - a new name.


    Bone Poets Orchestra explores wildly different textures through Bingham’s "no stylistic borders" policy - all enhanced by 40 years of immersion in just about every musical style.


    Tune in and find out what has been going on with BPO and what they have planned for the near future. This episode will showcase music from both BPO and the previous incarnation of the band Gaia Consort.

    On November 20th, 2011, the Topanga Symphony presented the world premier of his Andante and Allegro for Strings, composed when he was a student in Vienna, and on March 23rd, 2012, the BCSO performed his 1984 Trombone Concerto.


    His recently composed Celebration! will open the first concert of the Beach Cities Symphony's 65th season in November of 2014.
