Making the World a Safer Place for New Music

George Antheil

After writing this post, I realized I DO have a bit of connection to Antheil – via one of his students, Benjamin Lees. Wish I had known about the connection when I was Lee’s copyist (on a few works).

And, for those who are interested, here’s the post as it appears on the American Masters page.

Monday, December 11, 2017

Last Monday’s commute into the city was interrupted by the bombing at Times Square. The bus I was riding diverted to Seacaucus Junction to allow everyone to continue their journey via train.

In my case, I headed back home to work for the day. My husband, who served as a British junior soldier in Northern Ireland, was especially pleased, given his history, to welcome his wife home. What a lovely experience, as ever, to receive his welcome.

Nothing more to share about this date, but thought it worth a mention, for the record.
