- Music is everything you do.
Without deviation from the norm, progress is impossible.
If Roland Kirk had played guitar, this is what it would have looked like.
What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now. Buddha
Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results.
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a while, but it isn't going away.
If you knew for sure you had just one more year to live, what would you do?

MIGRATION - May 12 - The First Presbyterian Church - 716 College Avenue - Racine Wisconsin - 7pm
Jack plays bass with a 60 voice choir, an Irish band, a chamber ensemble and spoken word.
The musical works include "Letters from Ireland" by Mark Brymer, "The Golden Door" by R. Perera, Malala, "Pakistani Girl" by L. Nickel and “Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor” by Irving Berlin. MIGRATION will take place at the First Presbyterian Church in Racine because of its history as a stop on the Underground Railroad, for its excellent acoustics and for its central location. MIGRATION brings to light the trials and rewards of leaving one's homeland with the hope of a better future.
