Art and Playing at Carnegie Hall

Brigitte Jia-Carnegie Hall.jpg

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” —Thomas Merton

    • • Host of Express Yourself! and uber volunteer, Brigitte Jia, was selected to play in an orchestra at Carnegie Hall. How did she get there? Yes, it is the old saying, “Practice, practice, practice,” Tune in to find out about art, ideas, and more.
    • What is art? Do you think of paintings, sculptures, animation, or museums? What about music, dance, acting, cooking, voice, gardening, speaking, writing, or martial arts?  Culinary arts and performing arts are definitely forms of art. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Joven Hundal notice the small things influence what we all consider as art. Brigitte also reads from her chapter, The Gift of Art, from the forthcoming book, Be the Star You Are!® for Boomers and Millennials.  Joven finds that history and art are connected.  Brigitte recounts her phenomenal and unique experiences playing violin with Davies Symphony, touring in the UK and Chicago, playing alongside Ariel Horowitz and Amos Yang, recording for Torchlight, playing at Carnegie Hall, and more exciting artistic adventures.

Appreciate art for what it is: creativity, skill, and expression.  Yes, Express Yourself!

Ghostly Adventures

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” 

J.K. Rowling

What is it like to live in a haunted house? What if that house was actually a medieval prison that housed witches? Richard Estep and Vanessa Mitchell talk about their book, Spirits of the Cage with hosts Brigitte Jia and Katie Choo covering the haunting of one of England’s oldest prisons for witches where Vanessa lived for three years until she couldn’t take it any longer and Richard’s subsequent investigation into the paranormal activities. Trends without ends reporter, Jack Pawlakos looks into the adventures of ghosting, ghost ships, and the tracking via smarkphones and apps of the paranormal.  Brigitte wraps the hour with an Art Attack focusing on ghosts and spirits in art.

BIO: Richard Estep has been a paranormal investigator 23 years, researching haunted locations on both sides of the Atlantic. Richard has appeared on the Destination America TV show “Haunted Case FIles.” He is the author of several non-fiction paranormal books. He makes his living as a paramedic and clinical educator. He also volunteers as a firefighter-paramedic, teaches EMT, and paramedic students at three different medical training establishments, and serves as an on-call communications technician/paramedic on a federal Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT). In the tiny amount of free time that does not involve paranormal investigation and writing about it, he is an unabashed geek, with a particular bias towards all things Star Wars. He is a collector and reader of books. Richard lives in colorful Colorado with his wife, dog, and far too many black cats. www.richardestep.net

Bio for Vanessa Mitchell: Vanessa Mitchell is a mother of 2 who owns the cage medieval prison England’s most haunted house. She is the co author of Spirits of The Cage.

The Forever Letter

Elana Zaiman-The Forever Letter 750px.jpgelana zaiman headshot.jpg

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” ― Herman Melville

What does it mean to be connected? In today’s highly contentious and divided political climate, there’s an urgent need for people of all faiths and cultures to clarify, communicate, connect, and live our values into action. Hosts Zahra Hasanian and Brigitte Jia interview author of the new book, The Forever Letter, Rabbi Elana Zaiman who works to bridge and heal the values divide by helping people of all faiths and cultures to acknowledge, celebrate, and communicate their values, wisdom and love in powerful and lasting ways with the people who matter to them most. Zahra offers insights on how hope and connecting are healing partners and Brigitte takes music to a new level to connect the world.
