Some months ago, this video was all the rage on liberal blogs and websites. Then, after a while, it became a bit passe to invoke it at all. But, I decided to watch it again. You know, it still gets me. I get a little misty-eyed watching it. Go ahead and make fun of me for that, but I believe Obama’s message is uplifting and courageous. Watch the video, then get out and vote on November 4th.
This Spring, I'll be writing a work for the Quintet of the Americas. Performances to be announced.
Later in the year, I'll be composing new works for Counter(Induction and for the Iktus Percussion Ensemble. Performance dates to be announced.
