5 Memorable Moments From The ‘inside Llewyn Davis’ Concert, ‘another Day, Another Time’
Concert preview: Perfectly Frank: Pop goes Broadway with ‘Wildhorn & Friends’ at BYU Bravo! series
Mulligan plays a folk singer in “Inside Llewyn Davis”, and got to perform a pair of songs during the concert, including “Didn’t Leave Nobody But The Baby” and “500 Miles,” the latter with Elvis Costello. “This has been done by everyone from Peter, Paul and Mary to, well, me. So please give me a big hand,” Mulligan said before “500 Miles.” Mulligan received one of the warmest ovations of the night, if not the loudest. That’s because … 1. Dear, Lord: Rhiannon Giddens. The chances are a good many people haven’t heard of Rhiannon Giddens, but that’s probably going to change after “Another Day, Another Time” airs on Showtime. Giddens performed two songs, including a traditional Scottish tune, and earned the night’s one in-show standing ovation. Watch above to get an idea of what Giddens sounded like (just amplify the stakes by Scott Rudin is sitting 10 feet away.)

Ben Speaks concert in Medway to honor suicide victims, bring community together
So the combination of playing with a band again, which I love to do so much, and being able to share those stories has led to this new thing in my life, with Frank & Friends. Though a variety of soloists have appeared with Wildhorn, making each concert unique, the BYU performance will be unlike the preceding outings. This will be the first time for a bunch of things, he says, including: The first performance where he was hired directly by a university to perform, instead of through a commercial booking agency. The first time Into the Fire, the stirring breakout anthem of The Scarlet Pimpernel, will be sung with a large chorus of mens voices at his concert. The first time works from his latest show Excalibur, which will open in Switzerland in March, will be publicly performed. The first time songs will be included from Bonnie & Clyde, his last-seen-on-Broadway musical. Bonnie & Clyde is bittersweet for me, he explains. I love it very much, and audiences love the show. Its been staged internationally and been a hit everywhere its played, except for one city, New York City. While Jekyll & Hyde ran for four years on Broadway, his subsequent musicals have struggled to duplicate the long-running, widely sold out success. Wildhorn is highly popular with audiences, but he still gets the cold shoulder from some New York theater critics adverse to his pop pedigree. Wildhorn is aware that The Scarlet Pimpernel is immensely popular in Utah and he lights up to learn that Bonnie & Clyde will receive its state premiere when Utah Repertory Theater Company produces the fan-favorite musical Nov. 8-23. Im so excited that Utah will be able to see Bonnie & Clyde, he says.
Ever since Judy Giovangelos son, Ben, took his own life, she has worked to help teens from making self-destructive decisions such as using drugs and alcohol. Five months after her sons April 2009 death, Giovangelo started a nonprofit organization called “Ben Speaks Louder Than Words,” which focuses on preventing teen suicide and providing methods to help teens cope with their problems. Each year since, Ben Speaks organizes an event – A Concert to Remember, which Giovangelo calls a “healing concert for families, using the very powerful medium of music.” The concert was first held at the New England Chapel in Franklin, and at the New England Baptist Church in Newton the previous two years. This Saturday the event will be held at the place where Giovangelo, now the executive director of Ben Speaks, said her son was a target of bullying Medway High School. “As a mother, you can imagine I had to go through my own process and kind of pulled out of Medway,” Giovangelo said. Although Ben Speaks has grown “exponentially,” in four years, Giovangelo said the organization is “very homegrown.” The youth board advisors, she said, meet every other week at Medway Public Library. But holding an event in the same building and town where her son was bullied until he took his own life, she said, will be very different. “Its going to be very healing for my family and me,” she said. In Needham, Giovangelo said a suicide coalition was created after the town experienced four teenage suicides over an 18-month period from 2005 to 2006. But she said Medway did little to address the four teenage suicides in Medway since 2009. “When my son died, it was horrific the way it was handled,” she said, adding that the issue was “swept right under the rug” after some time. In todays fast-moving culture, Giovangelo said people are expected to move on quickly, but when a child dies because of “systematic issues in culture,” it becomes difficult. “Teen suicide and bullying are up front and in our faces today,” she added. She said she hopes the concert on Saturday will help her and other families who have lost someone to suicide cope with their losses – and be a “celebration of life.” In order to stop bullying, Giovangelo said, “We need to shift to collaboration, contribution and recognizing that the weakest link is the greatest strength,” she said. A Concert to Remember will be held at Medway High School at 7 p.m.
