Today is a big day. My horn class recital and saying goodbye to my friends and teachers in both my horn and electronic music studies. What a wonderful year!

Nadia Boulanger note part 1
A wonderful note comes to me from Fontainebleau in France. Nadia Boulanger has written me a handwritten note. A treasure. Today’s post is one of the most important to me, personally, in this entire year of blogging.

Phi Mu Alpha 1971
Nothing new in 1972. In 2009, I have recently run into some old college friends on the amazing social networks of LinkedIn and Facebook. I reminisce a bit about our friendships and dig up a picture or two.

Day 2 in Munich brings together ballet, opera, museum, and a visit to a U.S. Army hospital and the famous Hofbräuhaus, Munich’s famous beer hall. A great day.

Day 171: Munich & Dachau

Day 171 — Munich & Dachau
20-January-1972 (Donnerstag–Thur.)

Munich Marienplatz
I’m in Munich and I spend an amazing sightseeing-packed day with my great friends from my college, Montclair State College. The madrigal choir is in Munich as part of a Christmas European tour.

It was a day of contrasts. Singing joyful madrigals in the town center contrasted with seeing the horrors of Dachau.
