Tote-ally Chic on Bostonista

A dear friend, and former HOLLY CALDWELL associate, Kiefer Roberts, was recently caught by Bostonista looking stylish as always, and carrying his favorite East West bag. We lovingly call this Linen Cotton Canvas with Orange Accents and Gray Handles the “Chance” bag, after Kiefer himself, as it was his favorite from our spring collection. Check out the link below to read his take on Boston fashion, and see how he carries HOLLY CALDWELL to enhance his own personal style.

On Staying True and Independent

Love this clip from a recent interview w/ R.E.M. on CNN. Really inspiring, both the thinking behind the “rule of no,” and the fact that after all these years they can look back and say, “we did it our way.” Hoping one day to look back and be able to say the same thing.

Joan’s Legacy: Uniting Against Lung Cancer

Holly Caldwell and Roxanne Donovan attend Joan's Legacy

On Wednesday, November 16, I attended Joan’s Legacy: Uniting Against Lung Cancer 9th Annual Strolling Supper with Blues & News benefit at Gotham Hall in New York City. This event is very special to me, as it honors the memory of a wonderful and inspiring woman by raising money to fund innovative research that will help patients win their battle with lung cancer and lead healthy, cancer-free lives years after diagnosis. To learn more about this event and other Uniting Against Lung Cancer events, visit unitingagainstlungcancer.org.

Pictured above with my dear friend and host Roxanne Donovan, the evening was noted in Newsday as one of New York City’s premiere Lung Cancer Awareness Month’s events.

Thank You, Maestro

Mr Kent conducts the chorus in their beautiful performance hall in Westerly, Rhode Island.

I’m writing today to mark the bittersweet announcement of Mr. George Kent’s 53rd and final season as the Maestro of The Chorus of Westerly. The Chorus, known around the world for their beautiful, pure sound and perfect composition, combines the voices of both children and adults, and is over 200 strong. They are a rare and special gift to my hometown.

For me, music is essential to life, like air or water. Whether it’s Mozart or The Rolling Stones, music feeds my soul, gives me energy, brings me focus and drives my creativity. There are few experiences in life that touch our souls so deeply, that we are moved to tears. Very often, for me, it’s music—when a rare or special piece brings such emotional release.

Remarkably, during nearly every performance by the Chorus, I cry. A recent performance of Mozart’s Mass in C Minor was among the most beautiful pieces I’d ever heard. This year’s season was just announced, and the works chosen seem just perfect for Mr. Kent’s finale.

I count myself among the lucky to have grown up in a place with such a rare gem in close proximity, and want to thank Mr. Kent for his many years of “service” to all of us. He is and always has been committed to making it perfect, every time, and to enhancing the lives of those around him through his art. To be in his presence, one cannot help but be inspired. I look forward to each and every note this season. I also wish the chorus and my dear nephew Ryan Saunders, Executive Director of the distinguished group, the very best in continuing the tradition for generations of singers and audiences to come. Thank you for the tears. HC.
