In the American Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “If there’s something wrong, those who have the ability to take action have the responsibility to take action…” Chandler Wilson’s “Conversations” is based on the idea of conversations that are needed for society to progressively move forward, most profoundly in the areas of racial issues and equality. The music eloquently expresses the importance of considering and respecting the points of view of other’s. A musical work which is truly thought-provoking.
