This Broad Land, my work for soprano saxophone and piano, will be featured in three performances Thursday to Saturday, Nov 17-19, by The Ursinus College Dance Company. This will explain its relation to Lincoln, Clapton, and Puccini, I think. New works from Ursinus faculty and New York choreographer Colleen Thomas are also on the bill. My thanks to Peter DiMuro and Meredith Lyons for programming this, to Cathy Young for the choreography, to all the spirited dancers, and of course to Holly Gaines and John French for playing it. I get to see it Friday!
