Award-winning Ying Quartet Brings Music to Clarksville

 

Clarksville, TN – In the early 1990s, four highly trained classical musicians moved to a small farming town in Iowa and set up shop as the community’s resident quartet. The Ying Quartet, as the group was known, received a National Endowment for the Arts grant for the groundbreaking experiment of integrating music and creative activities into the everyday life of the town of Jesup.

Residents heard the group perform haunting and powerful classical works at schools, churches, banks and inside their own homes. They viewed the arts differently after those two years, and the experiment went on to become a model for future NEA projects.

TVA Trims Peak Power Demand During Summer Heat Wave

 

Tennessee Valley AuthorityKnoxville, TN – More than 372 businesses across the Tennessee Valley Authority service area reduced their electricity use this summer as part of a program that is helping TVA and all consumers save energy and money.

TVA, regional power distributors and energy management contractor EnerNOC worked together to lower peak power demand during the hottest days of this summer’s heat wave.

TVA has contracted with EnerNOC since 2008 to coordinate pre-arranged peak load reduction agreements, known as demand response, with businesses in the region.

The program is showing results. On July 29th and August 3rd, two of this summer’s hottest and highest demand days, the EnerNOC contract delivered 183 megawatts and 170 megawatts of peak power savings, respectively. That is enough each day to serve about 100,000 homes. «Read the rest of this article»
