  • Indeed, wet eyes, and then some.

    Just as it is hard to see with a dry eye what good music therapists do with special needs kids on a regular, one-on-one basis.

  • BTW, Karina Kanellakis is SOME conductor. Heard her with Orchestre de Paris last June where the orchestra along with the audience gave her five curtain calls.
