Comments [1] from BOONTON, NJ

Tragedies, of nature, interpersonal relations, rampart unreasonable hatred within groups and even families, corruption unheard of previously, conscience-lacking politicians, lobbyists running the show for the Koch brothers et al, frustrated peoples in the Mideast, and angry people sensing that the powers that be are discriminating against them, and politicians inaccurately publicly disgracing themselves by their total lack of the common knowledge of history, geography and social relationships. In so many areas, those in command are inadequate, unconcerned, unequal to their responsibilities. What a sad, sad mad and maddening world, where even nuclear scientists are not honest with their concerns for safety and allow such a horrific tragedy as the tsunami and flooding, to be further aggravated by rightful concern over radiation from the 50 nuclear plants' meltdowns.
On Saturday, March 19th, I will perform a three hour solo concert, "Love as Expressed in All the Vocal Music Formats" at the New Life Expo at New Yorker Hotel at 34th Street and 8th Avenue from 6 TO 9 PM at the Wall Street venue. Formats included in the concert are opera, operetta, Broadway musicals, "pop," folk, cowboy, jazz, Tin Pan Alley, sacred literature, blues, rock, lieder, and Spanish, Irish, Viennese and Neapolitan songs, and waltzes.
Kenneth Bennett Lane, Wagnerian heldentenor, opera composer: "Shakespeare" & "The Political Shakespeare" & director, the Richard Wagner Music Drama Institute, where big-voiced singers are trained in the Wagner opera roles and professional actors are trained in all the Shakespeare roles.
Website: where one may download, FREE, 37 complete "Live from Carnegie Hall" selections that I have sung in four concerts, three of them three hours-long solo concerts and one a Joint Recital with the dramatic soprano Norma Jean Erdmann, in the main hall of Carnegie Hall, the Isaac Stern Auditorium, by opening up, downloading, from the "Recorded Selections" venue on the home page.
