After learning the news that the current U.S. administration was forcibly separating children and parents at our southern border, and listening to the viral, painful recording of a young child’s hysterical cries, I wrote “The Children are Crying” for saxophone quartet. I am very pleased that saxophonist Paul Cohen has been performing it in multiple venues. This YouTube video is of a recent performance by a quartet of his students at the Manhattan School of Music. A shout out of thanks to Dasha Nenartovich, soprano saxophone; Guy Dellecave, alto saxophone; Wonki Lee, tenor saxophone; and Jonathan Gilbert, baritone saxophone.

Several months later, when it became evident that the administration was unable to reunite hundreds of youngsters with their parents, I wrote “The Children are Still Crying.” Given on-going events, I’m afraid the series may have to continue. It is all painful to watch it unfold.

The Time is Past, performed by Camerata Philadelphia string players, March 24, 2018, Church of the Holy Trinity, Philadelphia.

Ever hoping, although without any basis for it, that one day mankind will come to its collective senses and realize the futility of war, this is another musical reminder that peace is possible. With regard to the prospect for peace, 2015 has started so badly, that a musical expression of the desire of peace is something to share
