The Dream Lives On

May 31, 2010

I don’t know if any of you saw it, but at 7:30 PM tonight WCVB (Channel 5)  broadcasted the Boston Pops playing a newly commissioned piece called the Dream Lives On.  It was a tribute to three Kennedy brothers and featured a sampling of their political speeches.  Not only was it a lovely and  moving piece of music, but it included giant projections of the Kennedy’s lives and times.  It was narrated by Robert De Niro, Cherry Jones, Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris and created  the perfect blend of great music, images and words.

So often I get caught up in the political difficulties of creating and teaching art that I forget to step back and look at the bigger picture.  One thing the Kennedys were always good at is making Americans look at the bigger picture.  I watched and listened to this lovely tribute and was once again inspired to focus on the real meaning of my job – creating art and enabling others to do so as well.
