Bushwick and the Red Badge Project
A few years ago I was the featured speaker at a local high school’s Veterans Day assembly. This was, of course, an egregious error. I was there to accompany the school choir, directed by bandmate Brian Hoskins, in a performance of “Carry On,” a piece I wrote inspired by the stories of a B-17 pilot in World War II. The student-group in charge of scheduling a speaker had failed to do so and, without my knowledge, slotted me in. Gulp.
