The D-B Varsity Choir students will be traveling to New York City, March 30-April 1, to take part in the Choirs of America Nationals for Top Choirs Festival.

Twenty-four choirs from across the United States will participate in the festival and concert at Carnegie Hall, aptly named “Harmonic Convergence”. The participating choirs will be divided into 3 mass choirs for the performance. Many of the choirs will perform individually during the concert as well. The Varsity Choir, made up of singers from both the Chamber and Concert Choirs, has been invited to serve as “Featured Spotlight Performer” in the concert. This distinction comes with special recognition at the performance, premiere stage placement within the mass choir, and a longer solo performance during the concert. This distinction is given to only one choir during the event.

On Saturday morning, April 2nd, the choir will also perform a 30-minute concert in The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The cathedral, which has been under construction since 1892, is the 6th largest church in the world.

In past years, members of the choir have performed in Carnegie Hall, Chicago Symphony Hall, Music for All National Choir Festival, and most recently with the D-B Marching Band at Grand Nationals in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Dobyns-Bennett choirs are under the direction of Patty Denmark and assistant Gianni Loepke.

If you listened to today's "People's Pharmacy" broadcast on WCSK, it's titled "Culinary and Medicinal Properties of Fantastic Fungi". It's a great show about the medicinal properties of mushrooms. They were talking about this recipe: "Helen Graedon’s Mushroom Barley Soup." I found it............so here's the recipe!!

Sauté chopped onion, about a cup, in your favorite oil. Add about half a cup each of chopped carrot and celery and a cup and a half of chopped fresh mushrooms.

When the onions are soft and the mushrooms beginning to turn golden, add about two quarts of broth. Helen usually used homemade beef broth, but chicken or vegetable broth also works.

Add about a cup of barley and around an ounce of dried mushrooms, soaked, and simmer until the barley is done. (This might take 40 minutes, depending on whether the barley is pearled or not.) Add a good big handful of chopped parsley before serving. If Helen had leftover peas, green beans or lima beans, she’d add them towards the end of the cooking. Season to your taste with salt and pepper.

11:55 a.m. – Update on Jan. 31 steamline failure at Eastman’s Kingsport manufacturing site



MONDAY, Jan. 31, 2022 – The morning of Monday, January 31, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Eastman experienced a high pressure steam line failure at our Kingsport manufacturing site resulting in vibrations that were felt by the surrounding neighborhood and loud noises from a heavy release of steam. The incident is under control, and there were no fires.

Eastman continues to gather information to provide updates to our team members, the community and media outlets as quickly as possible. These are current updates:

Five people on site experienced minor injuries and received treatment from Eastman Medical or at Holston Valley Medical Center. All personnel have been accounted for.
Per Eastman safety processes, manufacturing operations were safely shut down.
The high pressure steam line failure was on the northeast side of the manufacturing site. This resulted in power outages to some portions of the site. Site personnel are currently working to restore power where outages occurred.
As power is restored, there will be some steam venting. These steam releases may be audible to the surrounding community, but venting is a normal part of steam power restoration and there is no cause for alarm.
Community members in the immediate vicinity of the site may see small pieces of debris that can occur with utility line disruptions. Eastman is committed to providing updates and response to our neighbors through our Community Care Line: 423-229-CARE.

Eastman officials continue to investigate the cause of this morning’s high pressure steam line failure, resulting in vibrations that were felt by the surrounding community, and loud noises that Eastman officials say are consistent with a heavy release of steam. Five people on the site experienced minor injuries and were treated by Eastman Medical or at Holston Valley Medical Center. There was no fire and the initial incident is under control. Eastman’s fire department responded initially and called for assistance from Kingsport Fire Department. The high pressure steam line failure was on the northeast side of the manufacturing site. This resulted in power outages to some portions of the plant. Per Eastman’s safety processes, personnel in that area of the plant were held in place. Eastman officials say the steam line failure caused the release of small particle debris that can occur with utility line disruptions. This particle debris may be seen in the immediate community near the site. Eastman public affairs will provide updates through the community care line: 423-229-CARE.
