Happy Birthday, Lanette! I hope the day is very special for you. I was so sorry not to get to your concert two weeks ago. It was the day after our big Halloween concert and several weeks of preparation, and we were all worn out! I know your concert went well - are there any recordings of the new pieces available on line?
Greetings, Lanette, and a warm welcome to our musical community here at VirtualArtists.
You have been one of my heroes and mentors for many years. I used to have a cassette tape recording of your Celebration of Spirituals which I wore out listening to quite a few years back. Celebration was one of the inspirations which birthed my own American Triptych in 2000. Thank you so much for all your music and your gifts - and especially your inspiration to other women composers!
