Expression of gratitude
August 2, 2011
I would like to thank Stewart Oksenhorn for lending his talent as a writer and interviewer to tell my story regarding the Requiem Concert for my Father (“In the name of the father (and other musical supporters),” July 31, 2011, The Aspen Times).
I know how lucky I am to be given the cathartic opportunity to share my experience with the greater community. Lots of people lose people they love, but not everybody is the recipient of so much kindness. I could not have realized my dream of singing this beautiful Requiem if it were not for the selfless gift of time and talent from Wendy Larson and the many musicians of the choir and orchestra, as well as the articles by Stewart and Ann.
Thanks also to the Snowmass Arts Advisory Board Performing Arts Committee for helping with the reception, and the staff and congregation of the Snowmass Chapel for their love and emotional/financial support.
