Today at the White House and DOI

Filed under: music — burnett @ 6:48 pm









The Dept. of Interior and the White House jointly hosted an awards ceremony and reception for our nations’ most visible volunteers today.  My good friend Katie Loovis, exec. director of Take Pride in America, brought me in with my colleagues, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and clarinetist Marty Nau to assist in their annual awards ceremony.  Secretary Kempthorne did far more than offer welcoming remarks.  He wanted to connect to the assembly of volunteers from around the country, and he wanted them to connect with each other as well.  It was really quite moving, and we enjoyed coloring it all in with tunes ranging from our extemporaneous arrangements of “Grand Old Flag” to “How Much is that Doggie in the Window”  (…that’s a long story).
