A prime minister gets new orchestral score for his birthday

Canada’s former prime minister Joe Clark got the gift of his life when his wife, Maureen McTeer, announced at a National Arts Centre Orchestra concert in Ottawa that the family had commissioned a work in his name from composer John Estacio.

Clark, who will be 75, was ever a keen supporter of the arts.

Is there any serving PM who would be equally touched and thrilled by such a gift?
