STUNNED! ABSOLUTELY STUNNED! I had heard ~ for years ~ about Michael Bussewitz-Quarm as a CONDUCTOR and an activist. Last night I saw him conduct Long Island Voices and Sound Symphony in “A Concert for Peace” ~ a benefit for veterans and F.I.S.T. ~ Families in Support of Treatment for their work in providing hope and help for those in recovery. But last night I also saw him as a COMPOSER. His compositions are amazing! He is a stunning talent in our midst. His “Requiem Dies Magna” dedicated to 9/11 firefighters, rescue workers & first responders is a masterful work. The other pieces about opioid epidemic casualties, international refugees and others took us through pain and loss without ever letting go of hope & healing. Bravo! A great job by all…
