Syrinx Journey Day 52: New York Academy of Medicine

This evening I performed in a benefit event for the South Street Seaport Museum at The New York Academy of Medicine. The evening had a “Moby-Dick” theme, and I was invited to perform music from George Crumb’s Vox Balaenae (Voice of the Whale) while a film of sperm whales was shown.┬áThere was a dynamic reading of excerpts from Melville’s Moby-Dick by an excellent cast: Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Epstein, Matthew Rauch, and John Douglas Thompson, with introductions by Nathaniel Philbrick, the distinguished historian. Gordon Hyatt produced the event.left to right: Matthew Rauch, Matthew Broderick, me, Nathaniel Philbrick, Jonathan Epstein, Gordon Hyatt
