I’m watching the inauguration ceremony and my absolute favorite classical musicians are playing in an ensemble: Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Gabriela Montero, and Anthony McGills playing a composition by John Williams.
Wow. These are incredible musicians, probably some of the best in the world. And John Williams? LOVE his stuff. I love the bits from Lord of the Dance in the composition.
The oath of office for the president is being administered. Can you imagine hearing the roar of several million people? Oh he is nervous. He’s fumbling over some of the words. But he made it through.
Woohoo!! President Obama! Here’s hoping the next four years are better than the last eight.
