Just a quick post from a little hotel room in downtown Washington, DC to share that I am here this weekend for TEDxMidAtlantic: Unbreakable.
Since last year I have been taking a much-needed break from the writing of concert music and have turned my attention toward the writing of… songs. So far, the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop has been my primary source of credibility in that regard, but recently I was also given the opportunity to write a song with which to close the final TEDxMidAtlantic session on Saturday evening (this is a TEDx that particularly enjoys musical performances). I have rather unimaginatively titled it after the conference theme, “Unbreakable.” Joining me are vocalists Carla Canales and Janet Noh, as well as some members of the local DC Youth Orchestra Program. Many thanks to TEDxMidAtlantic, The Canales Project, and El Sistema for making this happen.
