Elmhurst College to honor Terri Hemmert and Doc Severinsen

by Thomas Makinney

Elmhurst College will tip its hat to the music industry at its May 27 commencement ceremony. The Board of Trustees will confer honorary doctoral degrees on alumna and popular radio host Terri Hemmert and Doc Severinsen, a Grammy-award winning trumpet player and former bandleader of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Hemmert is well known to many in the Chicago area, having been a disc jockey at WXRT-FM for more than 40 years. She was Chicago’s first female morning personality and has been in the midday position since 1992. She was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2010 and has worked on music education programs with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. She has remained close to her Elmhurst College roots, serving on the advisory board of WRSE-FM, the college’s radio station where she worked while a student.

Severinson led the NBC Orchestra for 30 years during Johnny Carson’s tenure on The Tonight Show. Since the show ended in 1992, he has been touring with both a quintet and with his own big band. He has recorded more than 30 albums, ranging from classical to big band. He has appeared with the Elmhurst College Jazz Band three times in the last three years, most recently last October when the Jazz Band backed him on an Ohio tour. He’ll be back in June to perform at the college’s June Jazz festival.

Elmhurst College is a gem located in the heart of our town, offering concerts and performances throughout the year. The popular Jazz Festival recently celebrated its 50th anniversary.  If you’re interested in learning more about Elmhurst and all of its many benefits, call us at (630) 441-5570 or visit our website www.gmregroup.com

Chicago named one of top creative cities in U.S.

by Thomas Makinney

If you appreciate the creative flair of Chicago, you’re not alone. Chicago was named one of the top 25 most creative cities in the U.S. in a recent survey using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That’s probably no surprise to anyone living in Chicagoland. And Elmhurst residents are perfectly positioned to take advantage of all that the city has to offer: We’re only 12 miles from the Loop, with train service and highways easily linking us to a myriad of venues, schools, and jobs.

The study, compiled by RIS Media, defined creativity as original work within four factors: the person, the process, the environment, and the created product. Data was categorized into four metrics: creative jobs, creative schools, performing arts companies, and motion picture and video companies.New York City took top place as the most creative city in the country. Although the city didn’t win top seat in any of the specific categories, its overall scores reflected its combination of jobs, schools, venues, and opportunities for creative types. Other top five cities include San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis (yes, really.) Chicago ranked in 15th place.

Los Angeles rated highest for city with the most creative jobs. Not surprising considering it has the most artists and film-related jobs than any other city per capita. San Francisco ranked at the top of the list for having the most creative schools. Chicago placed a solid #15 on the creative schools list, ranking above Los Angeles and Miami.

Nashville is home to more performing arts companies per capita than anywhere else in the country. In fact, it has almost double the amount of the second highest city, San Francisco.  Not surprisingly, Chicago scored high on this list, ranking above New Orleans, Boston, and Washington.

As expected, Los Angeles was found to have the most motion picture and video companies per capita (approximately 6,000 in all), followed by San Francisco and New York. But what might be surprising is that St. Louis came at the top of the pack in fourth.

One of the aspects of Elmhurst that we love most is how easy it is to access the variety of offerings that Chicago has to offer. And our excellent schools and parks make Elmhurst the perfect complement to city living.
