When a group of music fans banded together to bring the true heroes of rock and roll back to the stage, it was called The Mystic Knights of the Mau-Mau. The Knights later founded the Ponderosa Stomp Foundation as a cultural organization to preserve and present the rich history of American roots music. As a result their primary event, The Ponderosa Stomp, was founded nine years ago.Through festivals, special events, concerts and outreach activities featuring musical living legends, we honor influential artists and educate audiences about their massive contributions to American culture. The Ponderosa Stomp started in New Orleans, Louisiana, a place whose overwhelming musical heritage and influence remains a focal point of the festival. The Stomp traditionally takes place between the two weekends of the city's world-famous New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival but the 9th annual Stomp takes place at the New Orleans House of Blues on September 24th and 25th, 2010.

The second week of Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival was a strong one. The concerts reached a high-point on Monday, with the arrival of the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen under Paavo Järvi. The orchestra's playing was characterized by freshness, dynamism, and an especial sensitivity to rhythm.
The performances brought out superbly the enormous debt Schumann owed to Beethoven in his overture to Manfred and his "Spring" Symphony, a relation remarked upon by Professor Bryan Gilliam in his informative pre-concert lecture. Another plus here was the superior acoustics of Alice Tully Hall, where the Manfred overture sounded riveting even from the back of the auditorium.
