Hamilton, Fun Home & More Pick Up 2016 Grammy Nominations

first_img View Comments Nominations for the 58th annual Grammy Awards were announced on December 7, and five Broadway cast recordings have been nominated for Best Musical Theater Album.This year’s nominees are Hamilton (Atlantic), Fun Home (PS Classics), An American in Paris (Masterworks Broadway), The King and I (Universal Music Classics) and Something Rotten! (Ghostlight).Traditionally, select nominees from the Musical Theater category perform during the pre-show ceremony, when a majority of the awards are presented. However, as Hamilton continues to burst the Broadway bubble and appear on several charts beyond Cast Album, an appearance by Lin-Manuel Miranda and his co-stars on primetime TV would leave us satisfied.As is often the case, the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album category is stuffed with nominees boasting musical theater ties. The nominees include Josh Groban’s Stages, which features musical theater staples and a duet with Audra McDonald and Kelly Clarkson, Tony Bennett and Bill Charlap for The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern, Seth MacFarlane’s No One Ever Tells You, which includes show tunes and Great American Songbook selections, plus My Dream Duets from Barry Manilow, which pairs the crooner with several late performers, including Judy Garland.The 58th Grammy Awards will air on February 15, 2016 on CBS.last_img read more

DCH begins rebranding campaign

first_imgLawrenceburg, In. — Dearborn County Hospital is in the process of implementing and refining its strategic plan for the next two years.  Rebranding is one of six primary pillars around which the strategic plan is built.  Emphasizing quality, growth and efficiency, the pillars form the framework for the development of systemwide goals and objectives.“For many people, rebranding means only that you change your logo and colors.  While the changing of logos or corporate colors may be included in a rebranding effort, it is only one small part of a much more in-depth and comprehensive initiative,” explained Michael W. Schwebler, Dearborn County Hospital President/CEO.  “Rebranding is creating a new, more accurate identity for the hospital along with establishing core values and systemwide principles.  This includes the reenvisioning of our mission statement and the development of a brand promise.  Most importantly, it means making a commitment to adhere to our mission, vision and values in all we do, 365 days a year.“Currently, our brand does not accurately portray our facility, its wide scope of providers, services and locations or even the geographic area in which our patients live and work.  DCH is much more than a hospital in the traditional sense.  The Dearborn County Hospital brand encompasses more than 45 healthcare providers with offices located in Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland Counties.  Care that once was provided in the hospital is now available in more convenient community settings such as our two outpatient physical therapy and sports medicine facilities in Bright and Versailles.  DCH also offers a wide range of home health and hospice services in five Southeastern Indiana counties, sponsors area WIC and PATHS programs and holds the licenses for a number of long-term care facilities located throughout the state.”“A successful rebrand is a concerted, comprehensive effort which takes time, expertise and research,” added Caryn Hornberger, DCH Director of Marketing.  “For almost a year now, we have worked with Madison Design, who are specialists in brand strategy, creation and implementation.“Last summer, focus groups, comprised of area healthcare consumers, were asked targeted questions pertaining to their perception of the hospital’s brand including its name.  A secondary round of focus groups was then convened to explore potential new names and logos.“The research concluded that the name ‘Dearborn County Hospital’ did not accurately represent the present-day hospital on numerous fronts,” emphasized Mrs. Hornberger.  “While the use of the words ‘Dearborn County’ did represent ownership, it severely limited the perceived geographic scope and significance of the facility.  To many, the word ‘county’ automatically implied a smaller, less sophisticated facility and/or one which primarily served the basic needs of lower income or indigent populations.  Using the term ‘hospital’ implied a singular or stand-alone facility, not representative of our full range of services, providers and facilities.”“In the first quarter of 2018, DCH will introduce its new brand to the community,” noted Mr. Schwebler.  “We strongly believe that the new brand will better represent all that DCH has to offer to the region.  It will also serve to tie together the additional pillars of our strategic plan.“From acute hospital stays to routine physician visits, much work is being done across the board at DCH to refine and enhance the way we interact with and serve both our patients and the community.  Along with our new name and logo, the public will notice a greater emphasis on our mission, vision and values,” concluded Mr. Schwebler.  “Many new and exciting things are in store for DCH in 2018.  We look forward to providing even greater care and service for our community in the year ahead.”last_img read more

Maltz returns to mix for balanced offense against Army

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 25, 2013 at 12:26 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 Albany found a way to take Derek Maltz out of the game. He was held almost completely in check in Syracuse’s season-opening loss to the Great Danes. It created opportunities for others, but it meant one of the worst statistical games for the attack since he entered the starting lineup.Once again, he was limited to just one goal in Syracuse’s 6-2 win over Army, but in the defensive showdown that the game became, it was a world of difference from his first game of the year.“Last week, they did a pretty good job of not sliding off me and I was just trying to move as much as possible and create opportunities for my teammates,” Maltz said. “But today, they were sliding off me a little bit.”It was a tactical difference between Great Danes head coach Scott Marr and the Black Knights’ Joe Alberici. Marr made sure Maltz wouldn’t beat his team and never had his defenders slide off the junior. Alberici played a straight-up approach, not treating Maltz any differently.It showed on Maltz’s second goal of the season. During an uncharacteristically up-tempo second quarter, SU attack Kevin Rice passed to Dylan Donahue on the right side of the crease. Army’s defense and goaltender Sam Somers slid to Donahue, leaving Maltz unmarked on the other side of the crease. Donahue fired a pass by Somers to the wide-open Maltz, who tossed the ball into the back of the net and gave SU a 4-1 lead.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s six goals came from six different players. A week ago, the Orange leaned heavily on midfielder JoJo Marasco, who tallied eight points. Maltz scored just once against the Black Knights, but it was largely due to the game’s pace.“A lot of it had to do with the possession time we had, and them going to goal and making saves forces us to be a little more patient, and it was good,” SU head coach John Desko said. “The tempo helped us win the game.”Still, Maltz’s day could have ended better. He got off six shots, five on net, and all five were good opportunities. Were it not for a career-day for Somers, he would have scored even more on his point-blank opportunities.“There was a couple shots I should have had,” Maltz said, “but the goalie had a good game.”Late in Syracuse’s explosive second quarter, Matt Harris gathered a ground ball near midfield along the right sideline. The Orange offense went to work in an unsettled situation.Maltz found himself alone on the left side of the field, and fired a low shot past Somers. But a whistle had blown. Timeout SU. Maltz’s second goal of the day was waved off.“We could have gotten one more goal if the coach hadn’t called a timeout,” Desko joked, “but other than that, we did a pretty good job today.” Commentslast_img read more
