I just saw this news on my twitter feed and it's not listed on the main page, so here's a heads up everyone. :)

Barry Manilow will join stars from Broadway, "American Idol" and composerJohn Williams for this year's July Fourth celebration on the National Mall.

 

Williams will conduct music from the Oscar-winning movie "Lincoln" with the National Symphony Orchestra.

 

The Independence Day concert and fireworks draw hundreds of thousands of visitors. It's broadcast each year on PBS and NPR from 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

He is certainly as busy as ever. He has been a musical work-a-holic all his life so it must be pretty routine but also shows that he is still in great shape to be able to do so many concerts all year. May his health and inspiration continue!


Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-
