Casual Living - March 15, 2016
On March 15, 2016, Casual Living posted a message about our Charitable Chimes series on their Facebook timeline. The post included a link to the full article,which you can read here. The article discussed both our current Charitable Chimes, The Tibetan Prayer Chime, which raises money for Tibet House NY and the Woodstock Chimes for Autism, from which 100% of the wholesale after tax profits is donated to research and educational organizations that are focused on autism."
Garry Kvistad, founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes, is proud of all the company has done. “Since my wife and I started Woodstock Chimes, we always wanted philanthropy to play a major role in our organization’s culture,” he said, “To know that we’ve donated well over $2 million through the years because of our loyal customers is pretty gratifying. We look forward to continuing these programs and supporting deserving organizations.”
Shape Magazine - July/August 2015
The July/August 2015 issue of Shape Magazine featured a write up on how sound can be used to relieve stress. Accented by a picture of one of our classic style chimes, the article quotes Heidi Ahonen, Ph.D., a professor of music therapy at Wilifrid Laurier University in Ontario as stating "Several studies show that music activates areas in the limbic system to prompt the release of endorphins and dopamine, two pleasure hormones, and to decrease levels of cortisol, a stress hormone."
We've known that listening to our chimes helps shut off anxiety and induce calm, but now there's proof! Or at least it's in writing!
Woodstock Chimes and "Change is Good" by Rick Danko
Did you know the chimes heard at the beginning and end of the late Rick Danko's song, "Change is Good" are Woodstock Chimes? Rumor has it the chimes were hanging in the studio and were in perfect harmony with the song, so they were played and became part of the recording. You can hear it here
Best known as the bassist for The Band, Danko lived in Marbletown, NY - a hop, skip and a jump from Woodstock. It was Danko who found the house on Parnassus Lane in Saugerties, NY that became known as Big Pink.
Woodstock Chimes in HGTV Magazine
One of the employees here at Woodstock Chimes offered up her copy of HGTV Magazine so we could share it with you - thanks, Connie!
Check it out - our Encore Chimes of Earth - Verdigris are featured in the "in the yard" column of the June, 2015 issue. This colorful chime is tuned to a pentatonic scale for a beautiful, harmonious song. You can hear it and all our chimes on our sound room.
Woodstock Chimes Line the Street in Winston-Salem NC
Woodstock Chimes founder and owner Garry Kvistad is a member of the NEXUS Percussion Group. They performed in Winston-Salem NC in January, 2015. After the concert, the producer took them all out to dinner and they parked right in front of one of our Woodstock Chimes Retailers on Trade St. in the arts district of Winston-Salem. On every light pole in that block (and maybe beyond), there’s a Woodstock Chime. They heard them ringing but it took them a while to figure out where they were coming from. Garry said it was pretty spectacular -- here’s a photo of one of them. Imagine what it must be like on a windy day when all the chimes are ringing!

Garden Center Magazine - March, 2014Healing Chimes - Share the benefits and power of sound with customers
The article starts:
When considering the health benefits of gardening, sound is a sense that many take for granted.
"People are easily irritated by color or texture, and they won't accept the visual noise factor, but they will somehow accept sound noise," says Garry Kvistad, founder and owner of Woodstock Chimes, "It's not only bad for your hearing, it's nerve-racking." Read more

Giada At Home - Food Network
On February 6th, the Woodstock Healing Chime had repeated appearances on Giada De Laurentiis' show, Giada At Home. She was cooking for a day of Yoga by the pool with her friends, and they kept showing the Heaing Chime and you could hear it playing in the background. Pretty cool!
Turns out it was a repeat from Season 2 - episode 7 called "Body and Soul". I can't find a clip of it, but here's a picture of Giada with the Healing Chime behind her.
