It was a great honour to celebrate David Amram's upcoming 88th birthday at NERFA 2018 (North Eastern Regional Folk Alliance) in Stamford, Connecticut.
David Amram has been described as "the Renaissance man of American music." He has composed over 100 orchestral and chamber works, written two operas, and many scores for theatre and films. He has collaborated with such notables as Leonard Bernstein, Dizzy Gillespie, Dustin Hoffman, Charlie Mingus, Elia Kazan, Odetta, Jack Kerouac, Betty Carter and Tito Puente.
Not everyday someone refers to me as a young man, Cheers, David!
