London Sets the World Alight as Global Superstars Rihanna and JAY Z Join Coldplay to Close London 2012 Paralympic Games

(PRWEB) September 11, 2012

The London 2012 Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony saw Coldplay, one of Britains best selling music acts, joined by global superstars Rihanna and Jay-Z in a spectacular celebration of achievements of the Paralympic athletes and an amazing summer of sport.

Ceremony of fire takes audience through circle of seasons honouring the spirit of Festivals.

Flame extinguished on an amazing summer of sport and celebration.

The Ceremony, called Festival of the Flame started at 8.30pm on Sunday 9 September, paid tribute to the UK as a nation famous for hosting festivals and the exuberance of festivals which is felt the world over. Lead by Closing Ceremonies Artistic Director Kim Gavin, Music Director David Arnold and Designer Misty Buckley, the Ceremony was overseen by the same team of Executive Producers who have been in charge of all four Olympic and Paralympic Ceremonies including Oscar winning film director Stephen Daldry.

In a dramatic opening section a storm created by Wind Gremlins on motorbikes attempted to blow away the Agitos the symbol of the Paralympic Games whilst a motorcade made its way through London to the Olympic Stadium.

The Ceremony then honoured servicemen and women, particularly through the work of charity Help for Heroes, in a section that saw Captain Luke Sinnott, a double amputee, climb to the top of the flag pole to fly the Union flag to the accompaniment of the National Anthem performed by Lissa Hermans, who is blind and autistic. During a moving speech by Rory Mackenzie, who lost his leg on a patrol due to a roadside bomb, flags from the competing nations formed a heart shape on the field of play before the shape was burnt into the ground.

The motorcade of weird and wonderful vehicles then stormed the Olympic Stadium, including a Clamposaurus, Hellcopter, Beast from the East, Bug, Time Machine and The Car that had to be Toad. The large tricks were built by a team led by Joe Rosh who specialise in taking old battered vehicles and turning them into amazing mechanical floats and machines, and the smaller vehicles were built by Mike Patterson and a team at Kinetika, an outdoor arts design company. The noisy, chaotic and vibrant possession burnt an intricate pattern of crop circles into the field of play before forming the centre stage.

Following the presentation of awards to Michael McKillop (Athletics, Ireland) and

Mary Zakayo (Athletics, Kenya) from Dr Whang Youn Dai for sporting excellence, recognition of six newly elected members of the IPCs Athletes Council, and recognition of the 70,000 Olympic and Paralympic Games Maker volunteers, Coldplay were revealed on the central Sundial Stage to lead the celebrations with Us Against The World.

The band then celebrated the seasonal cycle of ancient and modern festivals that take place throughout the year taking the audience on a journey of their most iconic songs set to cycle through Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. In a story of fire and flame the band were accompanied by spectacular performances by Candoco Dance Company, disabled ariel performers trained at Circus Space thanks to funding from Arts Council England, and The British Paraorchestra founded by Charles Hazlewood as part of a 200 strong professional cast, 1,300 volunteers, 120 child volunteers from schools in the east London Host Boroughs.

Autumn continued with a performance of Yellow accompanied by Candoco and 12 flame dancers, Up In Flames accompanied by a display by ariel artists Denis Remnev and Lyndsay Care, then Paradise with 19 fireflies descending from the roof.

Coldplays performance of 42 signalled the start of Winter with snow-like confetti explain from cannons on the Stadium roof and was accompanied by a performance by crews on stilts, blue painted Iceni warriors and a Snow Queen played by Vikoria Modesta, a lower-leg amputee, model and singer/songwriter. Finally God Put A Smile On Your Face saw motorcycle aerialists Lyndsay Adams and Laszlo Simet ride to the top of the Stadium by motorbike to ignite a ball of energy to signify the beginning of Spring.

In Spring Coldplay performed Clocks whilst a giant laser spread across the Stadium, and Charlie Brown accompanied by 120 children, before Rihanna, who has sold more than 25 million albums and 60 million singles worldwide, was revealed on a Steamship truck travelling around the track for the performance of a Princess of China as a duet with Coldplay.

Summer opened with Strawberry Swing accompanied by the British Paraorchestra, before Rihanna performed We Found Love from a swing raised above the stage, and Coldplay finished the season with a performance of Viva La Vida, the song which was performed by musicians simultaneously around the UK earlier at 2.00pm as part of Bandstand Marathon the final event of the London 2012 Festival.

Then came the handover of the Paralympic Flag from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to the President of the International Paralympic Committee Sir Philip Craven who entrusted it to Mayor of Rio de Janeiro Eduardo Paes. This was followed by a joyful and colourful artistic segment by Rio 2016 of musical performances by Brazilian pop stars and playful dance battles with wheelchair dancers and visually impaired ballerinas.

Speeches by Sir Philip Craven, IPC President, and Sebastian Coe, Chair of the London 2012 Organising Committee were followed by The Final Flame a section to mark the Closing of the Paralympic Games and the last night of London 2012.

Thomas Heatherwicks Cauldron opened and as the Flame began to fade Paralympic gold medallists Ellie Simmonds and Jonnie Peacock arrived to transfer the final flame to a London Paralympic Torch. They then proceeded to light hundreds of torches held by members of the cast throughout the field of play, whilst fourteen-time Grammy award winner JAY Z arrived on stage with Rihanna to perform Run This Town followed by a reprise of Paradise by Coldplay with JAY Z.

Coldplay then made an emotional performance of The Scientist as sporting highlights of the past 11 days played on the big screens in the Stadium, before being joined by all the cast to perform Every Teardrop is a Waterfall whilst the circular stages released fountains of water to finally extinguish the Paralympic Flame.

The Ceremony ended with a spectacular firework display over the Olympic Stadium and Park, as the worldwide broadcast left the Olympic Park to showcase a firework display along the River Thames as part of the Mayors Thames Festival, a stunning display lighting up the Paralympic logo, the Agitos, on Tower Bridge and finally a projection on the Houses of Parliament of the words Thank you London, thank you UK.

Seb Coe, LOCOG Chair, said: ‘The Paralympic Games has set new records every day, sporting records, records for crowds for television audiences, for unbridled spirit. In this country we will never think of sport the same way and we will never think of disability the same way. The Paralympians have lifted the cloud of limitation.

In the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games I said that we would ignite a flame that would ignite the world. I am proud tonight to say we have done this.

There are some famous words you can find stamped on the bottom of a product. Words, that when you read them, you know mean high quality, mean skill, mean creativity. We have stamped those words on the Olympic and Paralympic Games of London 2012: London 2012. Made in Britain..

Kim Gavin, Closing Ceremonies Artistic Director, said: ‘What better way to demonstrate our respect and commitment to these athletes than by celebrating with Britains most internationally renowned band, two global superstars and a fantastic cast of professionals and volunteers.

Coldplays Chris Martin said; ‘Being asked to play at the closing celebrations for the Paralympic athl

Jewelry Designer Jenne Rayburn To Join The Winchester Cultural Council Fine Arts And Crafts Festival

Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 31, 2012

The Fall 2012 Art At The Market event will be held on September 15th, 2012 from 9:30 AM 2:00 PM, at the Winchester Common farmers market, providing attendees the opportunity to purchase exquisite hand-made collections from Jenne Rayburn, a studio craft artist who will offer one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories. Jenne will be highlighting her Ark Jewelry Collection. Combining traditional metalsmithing techniques like piercing, stamping, and etching, Ark is a collection of iconic-silhouetted images designed as earrings, necklaces and charm bracelets. These timeless shapes are inspired by the animal characters found in cultural mythologies the world over, and tell stories of how hope, strength and virtue tie us to a greater universal purpose. Expressing big ideas, aspirations, and values, through deeply rooted symbolism, Ark combines ornament with storytelling.

Jenne Rayburn is a metalsmith, enamellist, and seasoned designer who creates lovely, original jewelry and textile designs intended to compliment the vision of the woman who wears them. Jennes approach is rooted in the timeless elements and reflections of nature and natural formations, geometries and juxtapositions. She is inspired by the structure and ornamentation in architecture. She gravitates toward layering and contrasting texture and color. Her work embraces simplicity of form and intricacy of pattern. My wearable pieces are a contemporary distillation of ancient handcrafts and jewelry, the ornament of indigenous peoples, and interpretations of nature, said Rayburn. I love to blend art and history with form and function, combining traditional and innovative contemporary techniques to achieve dynamic color, texture and pattern effects. Jenne is fascinated with myths and folk stories that recount heroic adventures and strive to express the mystery and complexity of the human experience. Grounded by study and admiration of formal and classical design and traditional techniques, yet not constrained by them, Jenne is continually experimenting and seeking out innovative materials and methods that enable her to express her ideas.

The annual Art at the Market, presented by the Winchester Cultural Council, is a juried art fair. The jury is comprised of WCC members, practicing artists, art teachers, and committee members who annually judge original artwork of professional quality in any medium for acceptance. The Winchester Cultural Council is a group of volunteers, appointed by the Board of Selectmen, who work to serve the artistic and cultural life of Winchester, MA.

Art at the Market will be held at the Farmers Market on the Common

Waterfield and Church Streets, Winchester, MA
