September 11 - Festive Memorial

9/11... Time to go to San Francisco.. But first, finish the orchestration of

The Gospel According to St. Matthew: III. The Call,

incorporate IV. The Beatitudes from the earlier independent work (Op. 81),


V. The Salt of the Earth


VI. The Sermon

and further incorporate VII. The Lord's Prayer (from Op. 5)

before exiting stage west towards the Civic Center with Harriet for

Opening Gala at the

Opera of



Il Trovatore, meeting up with Paul, Eliza, Peter, Eliza's parents, and DVC students before returning in the



foggy Inner Bay Area night to begin orchestration under clear skies near the Central Valley of VIII. Ask and You Shall Receive.
