Thread Name: Greetings to Roy Harris
Subject: RE: Greetings to Roy Harris
Sounds as though Roy is a great person. When I first saw the name of this thread, I was all set to post about the great American classical composer, Roy Harris, who used folk songs in his music, in a much better way, in my opinion, than the much-touted Copland, so I didn't think it was too much of a stretch for him to appear at the Cat, except that I was wondering how we'd greet him, as he passed on years ago. I had some great stories about him, to relate, as my brother got to study with him, privately, when he went to Southern Illinois U.

Oh, well, I continue to learn about so many wonderful artists here. Thanks for adding another.
