groweth up thou!

You missed JdP here didn't you- GMG's most contrary member to date (I'm assuming)- you guys would have made beeeautiful music together! I wonder if we can dig up an old Thread?,...

James has his quest. I can walk with him to the 'Helikopter Quartet', but that's where I must get off the bus! haha- I DO think it should be mandatory that all members' personals should be listed so that we know what everyone looks like, how old and fat they are, etc., just so, at least, the insults will be appropriate!

"Oh, no WONDER you like Menotti."


Notice how the Brant Thread became the "Not the Brant Thread"!

Orbits

A performance of Orbits (a piece for 80 Trombones, Soprano, and Organ) by Henry Brant performed at the Guggenheim Museum. (This recording was made on a phone, so the quality is limited.)

Conducted by Neely Bruce. (Video 1 of 3)

This is a pretty cool piece:

Apparently, this is a movement apart of a larger work titled Northern Lights over the Twin Cities.
