This coming Thursday, March 23, I’ll be speaking on a small panel about the future of classical music. 6:30 PM, at the Dahesh Museum, 580 Madison Avenue, in New York.
One reason this will be fun for me — I get all of five minutes to state my position. There’s nothing like brevity to focus my thoughts; this should be a big help in organizing my ideas for my book. Composer Stefania de Kenessey will moderate, and my co-panelists will be the very lively composer Paul Moravec, winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize in music, and two people I don’t knokw, composer/pianist David Ramsden Homan, executive director of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, and Kenneth Hamrick, conductor and artistic director of the American Virtuosi Baroque Chamber Orchestra. There’ll be a short reception after the event; tickets are $10 (students $6).
