A Musical Interlude

Shannon Farrell Williams and Jamie Hofman performed "Lament" by Frank Bridge at a gala on the occasion of the Twentieth Anniversary of the String Academy of Wisconsin in 2010. 


The String Academy is closely associated with the distinguished Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, where both Mr. Hofman and Mrs. Williams continued their studies, working with Mimi Zweig, Atar Arad, Jerry Horner and others.   Today Mrs. Williams plays with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the Colorado Music Festival.  Mr. Hofman is on the faculties of The String Academy, Carroll University and the Eastern Music Festival and has been a member of the Louisville Symphony, the Milwaukee Symphony, and the Louisville String Quartet.

The String Academy of Wisconsin at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee offers a unique educational experience for students ages four to eighteen to study the violin, viola and cello.

Personalized Product Solutions

Unique Solutions is rolling out a new business concept called MyBestFit, based on its Intellifit® Plus technology. First introduced in 2002, this body scanner records hundreds of thousands of body measurements and matches them to garments in its database. The consumer receives a personalized printout, showing which garments from participating retailers will fit.

The technology is amazing; the business concept is genius. Originally conceived as a brand-specific solution, the machine has now been moved out of the store and into the public space of the mall. Retailers subscribe to and pay for the service, not only marketing their wares, but also closing sales more quickly. Shoppers confidently and privately select the garments that fit.

Unique Solutions calls this a PPS, a "personalized product solution." They think women will love it because it takes the frustration and embarrassment out of trying on clothes. Men might never have to go to the mall again.
