MSM 1970

These images were taken at The Manhattan School Of Music in the aftermath of the Kent State Massacre, May 4th 1970.

See http://alancanfora.com/ or http://www.geocities.com/RainForest/2556/kent.html ****

The gatherings of students, faculty and administrators, were convened to find a way to mount a peaceful protest through music.

The results were: a school wide strike, part of the national student peace strike, and a full-scale memorial concert of the orchestral chorale music of Brahms and of Beethovenís monumental and uplifting ninth symphony.

Did any of this change the world?
I don't know. I would like to think so, but I know for certain that it was a fine moment in the life of that institution, and an affirmation of the healing power of music.

Reading the news and it sure looks bad
They wont give peace a chance
That was just a dream some of us had
