Inauguration Anxiety. Good Luck America!

fri 20 jan 2017

Friday 20 January 17:00 CET. Guy Livingston presents his musical reflections on today’s inauguration.

Bernard Hermann’s creepy score for Fahrenheit 451, about a dictatorship in which books are burned is followed by Leonard Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety. Actually more optimistic than its title would indicate. But then Song of Sorrows by Mary Jane Leach leads into Star Spangled Banner Fractured, performed by myself, and composed by Donal Fox. Freedom of the Press, a cynical song from Marc Blitzstein’s musical “The Cradle Will Rock” closes the show. Good luck, America!
