World Heritage Sites Concert
Featuring the World Premiere of
The Tides of Mont Saint-Michel: A Montage
by Carol Worthey

Stanley Wong & Gary Ngan

鋼琴小提琴藝術之夜【詩奔法國古堡•神秘影子盒】

Hosted by Stanley Wong

 
I'm immensely thrilled and honored that Concert Pianist Stanley Wong will premiere my piano suite that travels back in time to an age of kings and saints, knights and ninja-like monks protecting the coast of France, fierce and spiritual times of the Age of Chivalry, on July 15th in Hong Kong.
The Tides of Mont Saint Michel: A Montage! is a kind of TIME TRAVEL with these evocative movements:
  • The Bells of Time
  • Illumination
  • Battle Cry of St. Michael-in-Peril-of-The-Sea
  • Chant Angelicus
  • Chanson de Roland
  • Tides
  • Bells Echo through The Ages
  • Total duration of the suite: 21:35
    The initial premiere was exceptionally well received and Stanley Wong is planning another performance this August!

    Ed Rubin

    Renowned Writer & Art/Theatre Critic Ed Rubin Visits Carol Worthey
    in Los Angeles.

     
    Carol Worthey and her wonderful husband Ray Korns first met scintillating and supportive writer and art/theatre critic Ed Rubin in Florence, Italy at the 2007 Biennale International Art Exhibit, where he heard Carol's music Fanfare for The New Renaissance Opening Day and visited her painting exhibit.
    Ed and Carol have corresponded since then and become fast friends. Ed (known informally as "Fast Eddy" — he's such a card!) hails from Manhattan, but came to Los Angeles in May. Getting lost on the Freeway was no fun, but Carol and Ray soothed his soul when we all enjoyed eating a fine dinner at popular Emle's Restaurant in Northridge California.

    World Heritage Sites - Young Artists' Competition Program

    Honorary Judge for
    World Heritage Sites
    Young Artists Competition
    in Hong Kong

    Stanley Wong , Sponsor

    Carol Worthey was thrilled to be one of three internationally-recognized painters to be chosen as Art Judge for a truly mind-blowing World Heritage Sites Young Artists' Competition created by Concert Pianist and Concept Originator Stanley Wong . Three age groups of young artists competed and their work was amazing! The Kindergarten aged students competed via clay arts, The Juniors were in the 4 to 8 year-old range, and the Seniors were in the 13 to 17 year-old range. Each group received a 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place award as well as Honorable Mentions. What precocious talent, glowing beauty, precision of design, and variety of sites chosen!!
    And what a challenge to select winners in such a visual feast. Each artist seemed to absorb not only the physical look but the mood, history and very soul of their chosen site, from the Eiffel Tower to Machu Pichu in the Andes, to the endangered Australian Coral Reef. Let the works speak for themselves:

    Ice Cream Sweet!
    A Tasty New Ballet Done with Grace and Style!

    California Contemporary Ballet performed by our
    Youth Ballet Company
    Choreography by Artistic Director Aerin Holt and Lynn Bryson Pittenger

    Carol Worthey , Composer
    Stanley Wong , Piano

     
     
    Composer Carol Worthey explains her inspiration:
    "I consider ice cream to be one of the greatest inventions in human history! It certain makes people happy and it is enjoyed everywhere on Earth in flavors that sometimes defy the imagination. When Concert Pianist Stanley Wong asked me to write a composition for him, I decided that it was about time I portrayed in music some of these delicious concoctions. I determined that each piece in it should flow into the net with short promenades or marches and that the variety of flavors that I described should not only be distinctive, but that the whole work should function AS a whole and flow together as seamlessly as possible."
    Artistic Director Aerin Holt adds:
    "Carol knew that whatever flavor she chose to depict, it would be based on a kind of dance or music set-piece, such as a waltz or nocturne (night-description) and knew that the work would have to be very pianistic and evocative... and fun!"

    Aerin was drawn to the simplicity of the single piano recording, describing it as "a beautiful composition... enhanced by a certain romanticism. I felt the ballet should hold to an old-fashioned feel and intimacy, similar to a well worn photo of a couple in love or a child tasting her first cone at the parlor on a warm afternoon." For Ms. Holt, the richness of each flavor is expressed through both dramatic and subtle movement qualities.
    Lynn Pittenger 's choreography would draw from her experience with Balanchine to create Ginger, renamed for the ballet as Berry Sorbet, and The Romance of Coffee and Butter Pecan created as a trio with the Ice Cream Man.
