The story reports that Amram, who has collaborated in the past with the likes of Leonard Bernstein, Dizzy Gillespie, and Kerouac, will present pieces including `Three Songs for America,' using the words of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy.
Also, the Colorado Children's Chorale will perform an Amram piece whose lyrics were created out of sentences collected through street interviews.
Is this new post folly? Or a way of creatively humanizing convention politics? Indulgent or important?
Is a political convention any place for a sing-along? And what does it say that the Dems trust someone like Amram to pull it off?
