This week I traveled to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to visit a very dear friend. You may remember that I composed two pieces for buildings in Milwaukee, the Federal Courthouse in 2015 and the Central Library in 2016. On this trip I was able to see both buildings in person for the first time!
It was like meeting relatives of whom you've only been told stories. Both buildings were more beautiful than I imagined. The best part: At the Central Library I discovered they had taken my score, copied it 3 times for inclusion in their catalogue in 3 places, BOUND IT, and put the original in their Rare Books room.
This is an incredible honor for me. It was one of the greatest experiences I've had as a composer. I feel very intimately connected to Milwaukee and the library now!
Keep on rocking, my Musicfriends!
