Many, many years ago I was at the Bottom Line in the Village to listen to Don McLean and was mesmerized by the simplicity of his performance. Lori Lieberman (1971) wrote Killing Me Softly with His Blues in response to seeing Don McLean. It was later covered by Roberta Flack (1973) and still later by the Fugees (1996).
Killing Me Softly is a song that came to mind as I made this image which has nothing to do with Don McClean, but does have to do with being moved by music.
I worry about the fate of music in schools as I hear from friends that so many school systems seem to be cutting the arts from their offerings for students. In my world, there is nothing as essential or important as preserving the arts both in and out of school.
