Hear the Bill of Rights in Concert, Free

You read the news these days, and it's warrantless search this, pepper-sprayed protesters that . . . what's up? What are our actual rights? Composer Neely Bruce answered this question by setting the Bill of Rights (the first ten amendments) to the U.S. Constitution to music! He wrote in the style of Williams Billings, the revolutionary-era Boston composer, for chorus and instruments. I'll be in the chorus! Come on out and hear all about militias, jury trials, freedom of the press, excessive fines, and more!

The piece isn't long, so it will be done twice, at 5 pm and 6 pm, so you have a choice of times. It's in the Great Hall of historic Faneuil Hall. Many of the crew will be heading over to the third floor of Durgin Park afterward, if you want to tag along (but I'd need to know for the head count). FREE.

      That sounds excellent. I am not sure how that works, but would love to work with you on it. Do we get a digitial videographer? What equipment do we need?

      We found out that there's no wifi or Internet access in the performance room and we'd have to contract with Verizon to run cable in for the day. Maybe next time. Thank you for your offer, though.
