Choral conductor and arranger Ray Charles has died

asmac bio
Ray Charles, an Emmy-winning choral director, lyricist and composer who worked with Perry Como for three decades, sang the theme song for the television sitcom "Three's Company" and didn't mind being known as "the other Ray Charles," died Monday 6 April 2015, at his Beverly Hills home. He was 96. Charles Raymond Offenberg (September 13, 1918 – April 6, 2015), better known as Ray Charles, was an American musician, singer, songwriter, vocal arranger and conductor who is best known as organizer and leader of the Ray Charles Singers. The Ray Charles Singers were featured on Perry Como's records, radio shows and television shows for 35 years. The Ray Charles Singers are also known for a series of 30 choral record albums produced in the 1950s and 1960s for the Essex, MGM, Decca and Command labels. As a vocalist, Charles, along with Julia Rinker Miller, is known for singing the theme song to the television series Three's Company ("Come and Knock on Our Door"). As a songwriter, Charles is best known for the choral anthem "Fifty Nifty United States," in which he set the names of the states to music in alphabetical order. It was originally written for The Perry Como Show. He is also known for "Letters, We Get Letters," also originally written for The Perry Como Show and later used on Late Show with David Letterman. In his later years, he continued to serve as a musical consultant to television programs, most notably for 31 years on the Kennedy Center Honors. Charles was acknowledged as an authority on American popular music.


Cony Ruiz, cellist and "CIELITO LINDO"

As principal cellist and member of many orchestras and international youth festivals, Cony Ruiz has performed in stages of Mexico, USA, Europe and Australia, such as the Palau de la Música in Valencia, Bellas Artes Palace in Mexico City and the Sydney Opera House. MORE BIO. BEAUTIFULInstrumentals radio  has Ruiz recording of "Cielito lindo" on our playlist. The song is from a Spanish copla, popularized in 1882 by Quirino Mendoza y Cortés (c. 1859–1957). It is roughly translated as "Lovely Sweet One". Although the word "cielo" means sky or heaven, it is also a term of endearment comparable to sweetheart or honey. "Cielito", the diminutive, can be translated as "sweetie"; "lindo" means cute, lovely or pretty. Sometimes the song is known by words from the refrain, "Canta y no llores" or simply the "Ay, Yai, Yai, Yai" song. Commonly played by mariachi bands, it has been recorded by many artists in the original Spanish as well as in English and other languages. Even though the song talks about the "Sierra Morena", a mountain range in the south region of Spain, in recent decades it has come to be widely known as a theme song for Mexico, based in the Spanish background of the country.

Cony Ruiz studied at the Escuela Superior de Música y Danza de Monterrey with internationally known Bulgarian cellist Temenouzhka Ostreva and Cuarteto Latinoamericano cellist Álvaro Bitrán. She also earned a Bachelors Degree in Marketing from the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (Tec de Monterrey), and a Masters Degree of International Business from Macquire University in Sydney.

GORDON LANGFORD, Conductor and Composer

Gordon Langford (born May 1930 as Gordon Colman) is an English composer, arranger and performer. Although well known in the brass band community as a composer and arranger, he is less well known as a composer of orchestral music, despite winning an Ivor Novello award for his March from the Colour Suite in 1971. Langford was born in Edgware, Middlesex in May 1930; his father was a precision toolmaker. He was a precocious child, beginning piano lessons aged five. At nine, one of his compositions received a public performance. He attended Bedford Modern School and he went on to win a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music where he studied piano and composition with Norman Demuth. It was Demuth, his professor of composition, who suggested that he should change his surname or use a pseudonym. Hence, he changed his name to become Gordon Colman Langford.
