A world of song

I’ve finally completed an autobiography for my kids. Not surprisingly, it ended up telling a lot about the early days of WGBH and life in Boston. (It went 500 pages with 119 photos!)

Lynn and I continue to sing with choruses that give concerts locally and tour overseas. So far on our foreign tours, we’ve sung in Prague, Wroclaw, Krackow, Budapest, Vienna, Seoul, Suwon, Kyongju, Saigon, Hue, Hanoi, Moscow, Zelenograd, Yaroslavl, St. Petersburg, Talinn, Johannesburg, Durban and Soweto. Two trips within the States found us singing with the Gullah, in the sea islands and the Houma Indian Nation in the deep Mississippi Delta.

The audience in Prague was much smaller than our chorus, but the combined international chorus that performed at the 24th Song Festival in Talinn, was an astounding 21,000 singers  with an audience of 250,000 spreading up the field of an immense outdoor amphitheater.

We look forward to seeing the new WGBH. When you think how public broadcasting has changed over our last 50 years, it seems impossible to imagine what will be happening in that new facility in 2057!
