I finally have a moment to sit down and congratulate the amazing students and teachers of North Dakota who performed and prepared a concert that will have a special place in my heart for as long as I'm making music. Bear with me here, because this is a little dense. As a classical musician, I often feel like an expat, living in a foreign land of saccharine culture - let's call it fåkelund. After we played music together for a scant half hour I realized that I was in from the cold - no longer trying to dance with folks who didn't know the steps, or eating food that should be eaten with our hands with a fork and a knife - I was with my people. People who love this music as much as I do and have the patience, courage, resolve and intelligence to make it come alive. Our three days together were a blessing that I will cherish and draw sustenance from forever. I am all too aware of how rare these moments are. I'm not sure if the students knew just how serious I was when I said that what was going on was truly special, but I bet that there will come a moment when they look back with tremendous fondness at this concert and what they achieved with their friends. Congratulations to everyone - students, teachers, staff, parents - who made all of this possible. Looking forward to the day our paths cross again. #ndmea ...
