Dear Friends and Readers, If you are able, join me as I give a TEDx talk at Notre Dame, next Tuesday, January 21 in the 10:30-noon session. I will address some of the issues that occupy my creative life at this stage of my career, and specifically, how the confluence of rituals and engaged participation by the spectators can completely alter your music experience. Tickets for watching the streaming video at the De Bartolo Arts Center will be available that morning at the Ticket Office. You can also watch it live online by connecting to the Notre Dame Live streaming service of the university. We will commenting on the experience soon!
