Comment: So much for new beginnings in the 21st century
for American orchestras, new American architecture, and
the American symphonic heritage.
Thanks Douglas, Mark, Hugh, and Jeffrey -- and funders
the State of Maryland, and the National Endowment for the Arts
"which believes that a great nation deserves great art."
