I said this to the audience before the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera performance of my “Tributes” Violin concerto, but I’d like the opportunity to say it again:
We composers (obviously) are happy when are music gets played. We are even happier when it gets played beautifully. But when – in the process – we also form deep meaningful friendships with those who go through the trouble of learning our (many) notes, this – THIS – is what makes life worth living.
And so, I’d like to sincerely thank Holly Mulcahy for her exquisite playing of my violin concerto last night. This will remain with me forever.
