We went on a school trip to the Akron Symphony yesterday. It was a 2 1/2 hours drive to Akron, south of Cleveland. We saw Jennifer Higdon, and I was delighted that she remembered me from the masterclass. The orchestra played a wonderful program that included only works from the 20th-21st centuries. It's great that I finally get to see Jennifer Higdon's On a Wire live--what a compelling piece of music.
