40th Anniversary Report: Home Again, Home Again

The 40th Anniversary Tour is over.  We got into Chicago, right on schedule about 5:30 last night.  Another hour to collect our luggage, pick up our car and we were headed home.  We got really tired driving home.  It felt like the 1:00 a.m. or so that it was back in London, and I got so sleepy, I drove through a red light back in Champaign.  But our luck held up, there was no traffic and we are recuperating from jet lag today.

The JACK concert at the Wigmore was a big success (in our unbiased opinion.)  Also in the unbiased opinion of Jack Clements, The Guardian critic who called JACK's Xenakis piece "an epic tour de force."

Welcome home. If it's too hot and humid for you, blame the shameless grandstanding of certain members of Congress these past weeks.
