Tony and Peachy

Sharon Percy Rockefeller, president and CEO of WETA Washington, D.C., today announced the talent and broadcast plans for “Tony Bennett: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song,” a PBS music special honoring Tony Bennett’s receipt of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. The program will premiere Friday, January 12, 2018 at 9 p.m. ET on PBS stations nationwide (check local listings). The program will also be broadcast at a later date via the American Forces Network to American service men and women and civilians at U.S. Department of Defense locations around the world. Tony Bennett is the first “interpretive singer” to be the recipient of the Gershwin Prize.

The event, taping on November 15, 2017 at the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., will feature performances by Bennett, as well as Chris Botti, Michael Bublé, Michael Feinstein, Savion Glover, Josh Groban, Wé McDonald, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Vanessa Williams and a special presentation by Wynton Marsalis — with Bruce Willis as host and Gregg Field as music director (program subject to change). During the event, Bennett will be presented the Gershwin Prize by Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress, and a delegation of Members of Congress.

The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song is named in honor of the legendary songwriting team George and Ira Gershwin. The prize is given annually to a composer or performer whose lifetime contributions exemplify the standard of excellence associated with the Gershwins. The Gershwin Prize was first awarded to Paul Simon in 2007, followed by Stevie Wonder in 2009, Sir Paul McCartney in 2010, the songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 2012, Carole King in 2013, Billy Joel in 2014, Willie Nelson in 2015 and Smokey Robinson in 2016.

Bennett is an artist for all ages whose interpretations and re-interpretations have introduced new generations to the Great American Songbook. He is one of a handful of artists to have new albums charting in seven consecutive decades, beginning in the 1950s through the 2010s. Bennett celebrated his 90th birthday on August 3, and the milestone was highlighted with the broadcast of a television special, the release of a new CD and book, and the lighting of the Empire State Building honoring his musical legacy.

“WETA is proud to bring this year’s special performance honoring Tony Bennett to the American people in collaboration with the Library of Congress,” noted Rockefeller. “Sharing these special musical events with the wide public television audience across this country is our continuing honor.”

“Tony Bennett’s extraordinary career has left an indelible mark on music and culture in America,” said Paula A. Kerger, president and CEO of PBS. “As part of our commitment to present the best of the arts to the American public, PBS and our member stations are honored to recognize Tony’s contributions and share his cultural legacy.”

“CPB is pleased to support this program, celebrating and sharing with all Americans Tony Bennett’s enduring musical legacy,” said Patricia Harrison, president and CEO of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. “Broadcast of the Gershwin Prize is part of public media’s mission to provide high-quality content that educates, informs, engages, and inspires audiences of all generations.”

“Tony Bennett is one of the most accomplished and beloved artists of our time,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “His staying power is a testament to the enduring appeal of the Great American Songbook the Gershwins helped write, and his ability to collaborate with new generations of music icons has been a gift to music lovers of all ages.”

No one in American popular music has recorded for so long and at such a high level of excellence as Tony Bennett. His initial successes came via a string of Columbia singles in the early 1950s, including such chart-toppers as “Because of You,” “Rags to Riches” and a remake of Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.” He has had 24 songs in the Top 40, including “I Wanna Be Around,” “The Good Life,” “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)” and his signature song, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” which garnered two GRAMMY Awards.

In the last 10 years alone, Bennett has sold 10 million records. He has received 19 GRAMMY Awards, including a 2001 Lifetime Achievement Award and a 1995 GRAMMY for Album of the Year for his MTV Unplugged, which introduced him to a whole new generation. Later, his 2006 Duets: An American Classic was released, featuring performances with Sir Paul McCartney, Elton John, Bono and others, winning three GRAMMY Awards and going on to be one of the best-selling CDs of the year and of Bennett’s career. The follow-up, the 2011 Duets II, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard album charts, making Bennett the oldest artist — at the age of 85 — to achieve this in the history of recorded music. He broke this record three years later with his 2014 collaboration with Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga: Cheek to Cheek, which also debuted at No. 1 when he was 88.

Bennett was born in 1926 in Queens, New York. His father died when he was 10 years old and his mother, Anna, raised Tony and his older brother and sister, John and Mary. Bennett attended the High School of Industrial Arts in Manhattan, where he nurtured his two passions, singing and painting. From the radio, he developed a love of music listening to Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong and James Durante. Bennett is also a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge and participated in the liberation of a concentration camp. He marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma to support civil rights. He has performed for 11 U.S. presidents. The United Nations has named him a Citizen of the World as one of its foremost ambassadors. Among his honors, Bennett has been a Kennedy Center honoree (2005), an NEA Jazz Master (2006), and received Billboard magazine’s Century Award (2006).

Bennett and the other performing artists will be joined by a house band led by Gregg Field (Music Director/Drums), and including Shelly Berg (Piano), Nathan East (Bass), Edwin Bonilla (Percussion), Dean Parks (Guitar), Randy Waldman (Keys), Aaron Broadus (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Fred Irby, III (Trumpet/Flugelhorn), Joe Jackson (Trombone), Brent Birckhead (Alto Saxophone/Flute/Alto Flute) and Scott Silbert (Tenor Saxophone/Flute/Alto Flute).

#NHLPeachy Teravainen, Andersen and MacKinnon Named NHL ‘Three Stars’ of the Week

Carolina Hurricanes left wing Teuvo Teravainen, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Frederik Andersen and Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon have been named the NHL’s “Three Stars” for the week ending Nov. 19.


Teravainen led the NHL with five goals and 10 points in four games (5-5—10) to propel the Hurricanes (9-6-4, 22 points) to a trio of victories. He posted 3-1—4, his first career hat trick and second career four-point performance, in a 5-1 triumph over the Dallas Stars Nov. 13. Teravainen then registered two assists in a 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders Nov. 16 and one helper in a 3-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres Nov. 18. He capped the week with 2-1—3, his third three-point outing of the campaign, in a 4-2 victory over the Islanders Nov. 19. The 23-year-old Helsinki, Finland, native paces the Hurricanes with 8-11—19 in 19 contests this season, nearly half his career-high point total from 2016-17 (15-27—42 in 81 GP).


Andersen was perfect in two starts, stopping all 75 shots he faced to help the Maple Leafs (14-7-0, 28 points) extend their winning streak to six games. He made a season-high 42 saves in a 1-0 overtime victory against the New Jersey Devils Nov. 16, followed by 33 stops in a 6-0 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens Nov. 18 – the second time he has earned consecutive shutouts in his career (also Jan. 23-25, 2017). The 28-year-old Herning, Denmark, native shares first place in the NHL with three shutouts and ranks second with 12 wins in 18 appearances this season, compiling a 2.88 goals-against average and .914 save percentage.


MacKinnon collected 2-5—7 in three games to power the Avalanche (10-8-1, 21 points) to a pair of wins. He established career highs with four assists and five points in a 6-2 victory against the Washington Capitals Nov. 16. After being held off the scoresheet in a 5-2 loss to the Nashville Predators Nov. 18, MacKinnon bounced back with the primary assist on the tying goal in the final minute of regulation and then the overtime winner in a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings Nov. 19. The 22-year-old Halifax, N.S., native leads the Avalanche with 7-15—22 in 19 outings this season, including 6‑11—17 in his past nine games.

"There is no doubt that the Penguins and Flyersplayers will put on a great show for the passionate fans in Philadelphia, and those watching at home, adding to the history between these two teams."

“The Blackhawks and Bruins, two of our most historic franchises, will be meeting outdoors for the first time at the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic,” NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. “Notre Dame Stadium, with its capacity approaching 80,000, will provide an ideal setting for this ground-breaking event and will host the largest live audience ever to witness a game by either of these teams.”

Four Bruins players remain from the team that faced off both against the Flyers at Fenway Park in 2010 and the Canadiens at Gillette Stadium in 2016: captain Zdeno Chara, forward Patrice Bergeron, forward David Krejci, and goaltender Tuukka Rask. All four players won a Stanley Cup with Boston in 2010-11. In addition, Bruins rookie Anders Bjork was a 2017 All-American at Notre Dame.

The two clubs are scheduled to play a home-and-home series on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11 in Boston and Chicago, respectively, in a pair of matinee games that will be their only meetings of 2017-18.

We’re excited to celebrate our tenth straight year of this partnership with another historic rivalry at one of the most iconic venues in sports.”

The University of Notre Dame was founded in 1842 by Rev. Edward Sorin, C.S.C., with the goal of establishing a great Catholic university in America. On the playing field, the Fighting Irish have been at the forefront, with 28 team national titles. In addition, Notre Dame has led the nation in graduation rates for 11 consecutive years while producing the second-most CoSIDA Academic All-Americans of schools in the NCAA’s Football Bowl Subdivision. Notre Dame Stadium celebrated a new era in 2017 with the completion of the Campus Crossroads Project, which extensively renovated the Stadium while adding three new buildings to the physical plant, creating an unprecedented mix of athletics and academics. Opened in 1930, Notre Dame Stadium has played host to nine consensus national championship teams, seven Heisman Trophy winners and dozens of All-Americans.

Both the Blackhawks and the Bruins have ties to the University of Notre Dame. Current Chicago Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowmangraduated from the University in 1995 and the team has held a portion of their training camp at the school’s Compton Family Ice Arena four times over the past five years (2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2017-18), while former Boston Bruins forward Dave Poulin played for the Irish from 1978-82 and spent 10 years as head hockey coach at Notre Dame.

“We are very excited to welcome the Chicago Blackhawks, Boston Bruins and NHL to Notre Dame Stadium for the 2019 Bridgestone NHLWinter Classic,” said University of Notre Dame Vice President and James E. Rohr Director of Athletics Jack Swarbrick. “I believe it's only fitting that two of the NHL's legendary Original Six teams will take the ice for the first hockey game in one of America's most iconic athletic facilities. Hosting two franchises with so many connections to Notre Dame also provides a unique opportunity to celebrate our hockey legacy.”

This year’s game will mark the second time the NHL Winter Classic® is being held at a college football stadium, with the iconic New Year’s Day game previously held at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor (2014).

With the artists Michel Lemieux, Victor Pilon and Michel Marc Bouchard in attendance, Montréal en Histoires, Ivanhoé Cambridge and the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel unveiled three new tableaux to be projected indoors, additions to Cité Mémoire, which is making its way downtown from Old Montreal. During the event, The Queen Elizabeth in augmented reality was also launched; it is now available in the mobile app Montréal en Histoires.

Agora, Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth (CNW Group/Montréal en Histoires)

These are the first indoor tableaux for Cité Mémoire, the urban multimedia experience inaugurated in May 2016. "The same desire to tell the story of Montreal with a humanist, poetic approach inspired the creation of these new tableaux," stated Michel Lemieux, who added, "The fact that they are projected indoors makes it possible for Montrealers and visitors alike to enjoy the experience day and night, whatever the weather: this is a new way to discover Cité Mémoire."

Following an important transformation conducted by its owner Ivanhoé Cambridge, the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel reopened its doors last July. The Fairmont invites Montrealers, visitors and tourists to come and discover these new masterpieces that reflect the history of this institution and the city. These new tableaux and this augmented reality experience include the first stop on the Downtown circuit of Montréal en Histoires, which will be deployed in the heart of the metropolis in 2018.

The Cité Mémoire Agora
The Cité Mémoire Agora is a historical tableau continuously projected onto the panoramic walls of the Queen Elizabeth's agora. It is a poetic evocation of the great periods in Montréal's history and some symbolic places and compelling people who used to live there. The multimedia agora is part of the Cité Mémoire project.

Tableau Le Bed-In (Agora)
The bed-in is a historical tableau that emphasizes the war protest movement of the late 60s by illustrating John Lennonand Yoko Ono's stay at the Queen Elizabeth hotel in 1969. The tableau unfolds through immersive projections in the agora.

"We are proud to pay tribute to the Bed-in for Peace and to Give Peace a Chance, the universal anthem of peace and hope composed by John Lennon and Yoko Ono at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in 1969, a song that continues to resonate today, and for always," emphasized Michel Marc Bouchard.

The interactive river (underground passageway leading to Place Ville Marie)
The interactive underground river connecting Place Ville Marie to the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel symbolizes the time elapsed throughout Montréal's history. It reacts to people walking by, who can interact with its components and generate sea foam, break its ice and move clouds.

The Queen Elizabeth in augmented reality (in the Montréal en Histoires app)
This augmented reality experience makes it possible to relive the spectacular construction of the hotel in accelerated time. Dynamic narration reveals several historical facts, regarding in particular the technological advances at the time and the hospitality protocols required by Queen Elizabeth's visit to Montreal, in addition to an overview of the major encounters and events that have taken place in this landmark establishment.

Cité Mémoire in Numbers
3 new tableaux — the first to be projected indoors
77 projectors installed in the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel in order to create the Cité Mémoire experience, including 55 in the Agora
More than 150,000 downloads of the Montréal en Histoires app so far
26 Cité Mémoire tableaux deployed in image, word and music on the walls, in the alleys, on the ground and in the trees – and now at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel
A total of 156 projectors bring to life the walls of Old Montreal and The Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel 

"These installations perfectly illustrate our vision of enhancing the urban hotel experience, in collaborations with local artists, while contributing to Québec's cultural heritage," said Sylvain Fortier, President, Residential, Hotels and Real Estate Investment Funds at Ivanhoé Cambridge.

"I would like to thank Ivanhoé Cambridge and the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel for their unwavering confidence in us throughout this incredible project. Montréal en Histoires was able to take its expertise and innovations even further in the realization of this permanent large-scale indoor installation. A resounding bravo to our artists, who, yet again, have created three poetic, deeply moving tableaux. Cité Mémoire at the Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth hotel is a springboard for the development of our projects in downtown Montreal.", stated Martin Laviolette, Director General and Executive Producer of Montréal en Histoires.

The renowned artist Julie Mehretu will present a site-specific commission.

NHL and Government of Canada Dedicate Plaque at Historic Windsor to Commemorate League’s 100th Birthday

To celebrate the Centennial birthday of the National Hockey League, Commissioner Gary Bettman; Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson; NHL General Manager David Poile, on behalf of the League’s GMs; Hall of Famers Ray Bourque, Yvan Cournoyer, Rod Gilbert, Dave Keon, Frank Mahovlich and Denis Savard; and representatives from the Government of Canada today dedicated a plaque recognizing The Windsor Hotel/Le Windsor as the birthplace of the League.

“Today, in the presence of so many of our great legends and executives, in the home city of some of our great memories, at this very moment, which no one could have imagined 100 years ago, the National Hockey League proudly joins the Government of Canada in honoring our history and celebrating Le Windsor as the place of our birth on Nov. 26, 1917,” Commissioner Bettman said at the dedication ceremony in Le Windsor’s Versailles Ballroom.

“Legendary hockey writer Elmer Ferguson, who witnessed it all, described that November Monday in 1917 as ‘dreary’ and ‘cold.’ He described the meeting room where our League was founded as ‘a plain and simple room, rented for the occasion.’

In the century that would follow, the dreary cold would be brightened and heated by the passion and fervor of the hockey fans in this wonderful city – and many others. The ‘plain and simple room’ would lead us to remarkable, transformational venues in places like Vancouver and Florida, here in Montreal and Los Angeles, and even Las Vegas. It would take us to places like Stockholm and Shanghai, London and Beijing.

“As we celebrate our first 100 years and look forward to launching our second century, we will never forget that it all began right here. This is the heartland of our history. We stand just a few blocks from Victoria Skating Rink – where the first indoor hockey game under organized rules was played on March 3, 1875. This is where Lord Stanley saw his first hockey game at the Montreal Winter Carnival on Feb. 4, 1889.

“We stand just a few blocks from McGill University, which boasts such alumni as James Creighton, who defined the rules used in that first organized indoor game – and also played in it. Another McGill alum, Mike Babcock, tomorrow night will coach the Toronto Maple Leafs against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre, also just a few blocks from here.

“We’re barely a mile from site of the Forum, an historic site for virtually every one of the legends with us today. On April 9, 1964, in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals, Dave Keon scored all three goals in the 3-1 Toronto victory that would send the Maple Leafs to the Stanley Cup Final against Detroit. On Feb. 24, 1968, Rod Gilbert took 16 shots on the Montreal net and scored four goals as the New York Rangers recorded a 6-1 triumph at the Forum. The only player to record more shots on goal in a regular-season game also is with us today: Ray Bourque, who has a nearby arena named for him in his native St. Laurent, Que., took 19 shots against Quebec’s Ron Tugnutt in Boston on March 21, 1991. At the Forum on March 21, 1973, Frank Mahovlich scored his 500th career goal in a 3-2 victory over Vancouver. The only four players to beat him to 500? Rocket Richard, Gordie Howe, Bobby Hull and Jean Beliveau. On New Year’s Eve, 1975, at the Forum, Yvan Cournoyer scored the 3-1 goal in one of the most epic games in NHL history – the Canadiens’ 3-3 tie against the vaunted ‘Red Army.’ And on June 9, 1993, when it was my privilege to present the Stanley Cup for the first time – to Canadiens captain Guy Carbonneau – the person he handed it to, and the first person to actually lift the Cup at the Forum that night, was Denis Savard.

“We’re honored these legends could join us today. We’re so pleased to stand mere blocks from the Queen Elizabeth Hotel – home in 1963 to the first NHL Draft. And across the park from us is the Sun-Life Building, home to our League’s offices for so many years.

“When you come to this historic hockey city, you feel the heartbeat of our League, the pulse of our game. You see the sweaters, you hear the debates in two languages – and at every Canadiens home game, you hear the whistles of more than 20,000 referees.

“The NHL was born here and it will live here forever. And now, with the dedication of this plaque, Le Windsor’s designation as sacred hockey ground is official and eternal. We thank our forebears and we celebrate all who have contributed to the growth of our League – and our game.

“Most important, we are grateful to our fans, the lifeblood of our growth for a century.”

Commissioned by Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada and Parks Canada, the plaque inscription reads:

The National Hockey League

Founded here in November 1917, the NHL holds a special place in Canadians’ hearts. After expanding to the United States in 1924 and gaining exclusive access to the prestigious Stanley Cup in 1927, it became the world’s predominant hockey league, growing in popularity through radio and television broadcasts and captivating generations of fans with the speed and skill of the game. The NHL’s top players have been recognized as national icons and international superstars, while its champion teams have set high standards of excellence, inspiring people of all ages to participate in and enjoy Canada’s national winter sport.

La Ligue Nationale De Hockey

Fondée ici en novembre 1917, la LNH est au cœur de l’esprit canadien. Après son expansion aux États-Unis en 1924 et l’obtention de l’exclusivité à la Coupe Stanley en 1927, elle devient la principale ligue de hockey au monde et gagne en popularité grâce à son jeu rapide et habile. Les affrontements sont radiodiffusés, puis télédiffusés, au grand bonheur de générations de partisans. Les meilleurs joueurs deviennent des idoles nationales et des vedettes internationales, tandis que les équipes championnes établissent de hautes normes d’excellence et encouragent des gens de tout âge à participer au sport d’hiver national du Canada.
