TWO YEARS LATER

12/14/14

Something broke in me two years ago, and I have sat in mute amazement that so little of any real meaning has changed in our society and culture. There have been more than 30 shootings at schools since the unimaginably terrible killings in Newtown CT two years ago.

I was hired for the job by Sean Hartley, who worked for the Lucy Moses School where the Rottenbergs were in residence, and I spent two years working with them – our concerts were always at Merkin Hall, which was therefore the first concert hall in New York City that I ever set foot on.
