Low Cost Financing for New Media Businesses

Tekserve and the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership are sponsoring a seminar on low cost financing for new media businesses as part of the “Intersections” program.

Intersections Program:
All About NIMBLE – Tech and New Media Financing

An innovative program that will allow new-economy companies such as new-media businesses, software developers and biotech firms to reduce their borrowing rates on loans for equipment and real estate will be the subject of an information session organized by the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership as part of its “Intersections” community events programming.

The session will be held at Tekserve, 119 West 23rd Street, on March 1 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. It is expected to be particularly relevant to those involved in bioscience, technology and new media. New media includes such enterprises as designing and developing digital communications and networking programs, software programs, multimedia, websites and computer games.

The loan program is called NIMBLE and is being offered through the City’s Capital Resource Corporation. Through the use of tax-exempt bonds for small and mid-size firms, it provides lower borrowing rates to companies that make or create “intangible products” on loans for capital expenditures in connection with things like patents, copyrights, formulas, processes and designs.

The event will begin with networking and a brief presentation by Tekserve’s Business Solutions Group which offers a suite of Help Desk and Professional Services that support small businesses – followed by a description of the NIMBLE program by the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Complimentary coffee and desserts will be provided by Birch Coffee.

Palacio Real Stradivarius
Stradivarius on display Madrid’s Palacio Real

Every Monday at 12:30pm, WMP Concert Hall offers a 45 minute long chamber music concert to the public, and it is free admission with a suggested donation of $10.00. The idea of the concert series is to offer high quality music to their neighbors while they take their lunch break.

Monday, February 22 at 12:30pm
Violinist Emily Smith and Pianist Marnie Hauschildt

These two young artists will perform works by Bach Mozart and Debussy on Monday, February 22nd at 12:30pm.

Emily Daggett Smith is a celebrated young violinist and chamber musician. In 2009, Ms. Smith won first prize at the Juilliard concerto competition and made her New York debut in Alice Tully Hall, playing the Beethoven violin concerto with the Juilliard Orchestra, under the direction of Emmanuel Villaume.

In 2008, she was appointed concertmaster of the Juilliard Orchestra and has led the ensemble under the direction of Michael Tilson-Thomas, Nicholas McGegan, and James DePriest. She has traveled with the orchestra to Beijing and Shanghai, as well as across the United States, performing in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Disney Hall in LA, and Symphony Hall in Boston. In addition to her work as a solo and orchestral musician, Ms. Smith is an active chamber musician. She has performed with such artists as Claude Frank, Joseph Kalichstein, and Orion Weiss, in Alice Tully Hall, Weill Hall, Symphony Space, and Zankel Hall.

In 2005, she won Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in the junior division with the Alisier Trio. She is also the founding first violinist of the Tessera Quartet, an emerging New York-based ensemble, formed under the guidance of the Juilliard String Quartet. The Tessera Quartet has recently collaborated with Claude Frank and Lowell Liebermann and will record Liebermann’s complete quartets for Koch records.

Born in 1987, Ms. Smith grew up in the Boston area. She won various competitions in New England and performed violin concerti with the Brockton, Newton, and Waltham symphonies. She has appeared on PBS’s national broadcast, “Live from Lincoln Center,” as well as twice on NPR’s “From the Top.” She has participated in festivals including Kneisel Hall, the Orpheus program at The Juilliard School, Banff International Master Classes, and The New York String Orchestra Seminar, conducted by Jaime Laredo. For nine summers she attended Greenwood Music Camp in Cummington, Massachusetts, which fostered her deep love of chamber music. In honor of Greenwood’s 75th anniversary, Ms. Smith performed Saint-Saens’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso with the Greenwood orchestra at the Hatch Shell in Boston.

In 2009 Ms. Smith received her Bachelors of Music from The Juilliard School, where she is now pursuing graduate studies. Her teachers have included Donald Weilerstein, Nick Eanet, Laurie Smukler, Joel Smirnoff, and Masuko Ushioda. Ms. Smith lives in New York City.

Canadian pianist Marnie Hauschildt is currently working towards a Master’s degree in collaborative piano under full scholarship at The Juilliard School, where she studies with Jonathan Feldman and Margo Garrett. Before coming to Juilliard, she received a Master’s degree in solo piano from The University of British Columbia as a student of Jane Coop and an Undergraduate degree from the University of Victoria.

Marnie has been the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including awards from The Canadian Music Competitions, the BC Arts Council, Friends of Chamber Music, Performing Arts BC, and the Vancouver Women’s Musical Club. Most recently she won first prize at the Canadian Music Teachers’ Association National piano competition in Calgary, Alberta. In 2000, she was awarded the Gold Medal for receiving the highest mark in Canada on the A.R.C.T. piano performance exams, and she also holds an L.R.S.M. performance diploma from the Associated Board in London, England.

She has performed as a soloist with several orchestras, including the B.C. Chamber Orchestra, the Vancouver Academy Orchestra, and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Last year she had her Merkin Hall debut in New York City, playing a recital with cellist and Juilliard faculty member Andre Emelianoff.

In the summer of 2009 she worked as a pianist and coach at the Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Tuscany, Italy. She spent two summers at the Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival in Blue Hill, Maine, and next summer will be attending the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara to study in the collaborative piano department. She currently works as principal keyboardist in the Juilliard Orchestra.

WMP Concert Hall is located at 31-33 East 28th Street, between Park and Madison. No food or beverages are permitted in the concert hall.
