13th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor
Bermuda Limousine International was the official Ground Transportation Company again for the fourth year at The Kennedy Center for its 13th Annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor to Tina Fey on November 9th, 2010 in Washington DC. Tina Fey was the star, executive producer and a writer of "30 Rock," for which she's won almost too many awards to list: an Emmy, two Golden Globes, four SAG Awards and a People's Choice Award. She has starred in two feature films -- "Date Night" and "Baby Mama" -- as well as voicing characters for two animated features. She got her start with the Chicago improve company The Second City and was a writer and performer on "Saturday Night Live" for nine seasons. Her satiric characterization of Sarah Palin was so good that people still think that Palin said, "I can see Russia from my house!" That was Tina Fey, not Palin. The lineup of top entertainers included Fred Armisen, Steve Carell, Jimmy Fallon, Jon Hamm, Jennifer Hudson, Jane Krakowski, Steve Martin, Seth Meyers, Lorne Michaels Tracy Morgen, and Betty White will salute Tina Fey in the Concert Hall at the Kennedy Center Mark Twain Prize For American Humor. The evening will pay tribute to the humor and accomplishments of the popular writer, producer, actress and comedienne. It broadcast over PBS television on November 14, 2010 at 9pm and will repeated over the course the next few years.

Morgan Freeman; Narrated Excerpts
The Kennedy Center in Washington DC opens JFK commemoration with distinguished crowd...
Thursday,January 20th, 2011 The arts are an essential part of society. The arts are what a society is remembered by. Those were the leitmotifs, sounded again and again, of The Kennedy Center's gala concert to open a two-week mini-festival commemorating the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of the president whose name the center bears. Yet the arts have a questionable role at this kind of gala. When your audience includes 300 mayors (in town for the U.S. Conference of Mayors) and 90-some members of the Kennedy family; when your emcees include Terrence McNally, Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols; and when your performers include Yo-Yo Ma, Herbie Hancock and Paul Simon, the actual art tends to get pushed aside, served up in snippets the size of variety-show acts. That is all the more true when your keynote speaker is the president of the United States. Barack Obama, in a prepared and slightly routine speech, drew implicit and not-so-implicit parallels between John F. Kennedy's presidency and his own. "I can only imagine how he must have felt entering the Oval Office in turbulent times," he said, getting a big laugh and a burst of applause - although after his descriptions of Kennedy as devoted father, inspiring speaker and bearer of a message of hope, the dots hardly needed further connecting. As for the arts, the evening was designed as a celebration, first and foremost. Its second function was as a placeholder, demonstrating the symbolic value of what we call the arts, rather than their full impact. Even if Yo-Yo Ma is playing the cello beautifully, yet another performance of "The Dying Swan" - danced by Veronika Part of American Ballet Theatre - reflects little of great social moment. It is simply, undemandingly, lovely and not too long. In an effort to be all things to all people, these events also become an odd melange of styles and levels of expertise. You have students from the Harvard Glee Club on the one hand, Simon on the other. Now Hancock, Esperanza Spalding and Jack DeJohnette in a vivid jazz combo, now Harolyn Blackwell in an alarmingly schmaltzy, everything-but-the-kitchen-sink arrangement of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands." Now you have the tap-dancing, teenage local whiz kids the Manzari Brothers (John and Leo); now, David Rubenstein, the Kennedy Center's president, giving the obligatory speech of individual thanks that makes so many Kennedy Center gala events feel slightly like meetings of a Rotary Club. Each excerpt exists in its own artistic atmosphere. You could say that, artistically, the evening's focus was the world premiere of Peter Lieberson's "Remembering JFK (An American Elegy)," commissioned by the National Symphony Orchestra and Christoph Eschenbach, whose mien at his entrance brought to mind the words of another American president: Speak softly, and carry a big stick (or baton). Eschenbach certainly put his heart into a piece that worked hard, and succeeded, at sounding instantly well known. While Morgan Freeman narrated excerpts of Kennedy's speeches, the orchestra passed around a Coplandesque theme that had the warm American familiarity of worn jeans, a broken-in baseball glove and wind off the prairie. Lieberson kept a balance between the elegiac and the heroic (two time-honored functions of this kind of occasional music), creating a score that was stirring, not offensively derivative, and laid out so clearly that, with Eschenbach's help, you could hear the demarcations between each section - from the rousing opening (slightly marred at the very beginning by unsteadiness in the trumpet's call) through the expected slow movement to a coda in which the music struck out in a new direction, conjuring up a calmer, brighter universe in response to the words about world peace. Does it say anything about our society now? No. Is it a fine piece with crowd appeal that will be suitable for Presidents' Days and other orchestral commemorations for years to come? Indubitably. (The NSO will be included on the recording that the orchestra is issuing in May 2011.) Yet a more immediate highlight of the program came when Simon, 69, came out with his guitar and the polymathic string player Mark Stewart (here on cello) to sing a song he wrote just months after Kennedy's assassination in 1963, "The Sound of Silence." Simon's voice is miraculously unchanged; his singing was like a time capsule opening on another era, and the moment said a lot more about our lives, or the time between the Kennedy era and now, than anything else on the program.

The Kennedy Center 9/11:
Septermber 8, 2011 - - The Kennedy Center 9/11: 10 Years Later: An Evening of Remembrance and Reflection…Was streamed live on Facebook.
The Kennedy Center presented a special event to commemorate, in words and music, the 10th anniversary of the tragedies that took place on September 11, 2001. September’s eighth evening program was private and by invitation only. Hosted by Christiane Amanpour, the tribute concert includes performances by Denyce Graves, Emmylou Harris, Wynton Marsalis, and the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Mauceri. Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Madeleine Albright and Leon Wieseltier offered commemorative remarks and readings. There were soaring vocals from Denyce Graves and Raul Esparza, and there was a humble but eloquent song — “Hard Times Come Again No More” — from Emmylou Harris. There was the muted jazz trumpet of the remarkable Wynton Marsalis. In addition, Melissa Leo, the Oscar-winning actress, read verse that was as solemn and sober and dour as the soaking rain outside. It was a kind of musical metaphor for what ABC News anchor Christiane Amanpour, the evening’s host, called “the new normal” after Sept. 11, as wary but hopeful Americans pulled together and regrouped. The evening program was produced by Robert Pullen for the Kennedy Center and ground logistics by Billy Amato for Bermuda Limousine International.
