O’s Notes: Pianist, conductor and composer Arturo O’Farrill is inspired and shares a beautiful message with a Latin symphony performing a beautiful collection of Afro Cuban beats. And it is also a history lesson with reflections on the words of WEB Dubois as narrated by Dr. Cornell West. “Four Questions” was premiered at The Apollo May 21, 2016 and they are even more relevant today as we face an unprecedented challenge in National leadership. The vibrant music is rich and full of inspiration. Though it’s a full orchestra the sound is not cluttered. It is crystal clear, as clear as the message given in the Four Questions. As we witnessed the early release from jail of Michael Cohen while countless others remained in infected cells, we need this reminder to take heed to what’s right. Listen to the music and VOTE!
