As you know my website motto is: Constructing thought, one note at a time. I came up with this it seemed to comprise the many things I do: composing, speaking, teaching, writing, and thinking about music. I love being in the thick of things. So, it’s been a bit since I’ve constructed thought one WORD at a time, so I thought I’d post a link to my recent interview of Steven Stucky, Pulitzer-prize winning composer, for the Choral Arts Society here in DC. The article was in conjunction with the East Coast premiere of Stucky’s Take Him, Earth commissioned for the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s untimely death. CAS just held a terrific concert, the Stucky paired with Verdi’s powerful Requiem, at the Kennedy Center. CAS also added a visual element to the concert: images of Kennedy’s life and times tastefully coordinated with their performance.
