Music for Biting Your Fingernails (Orchard Circle)

Zachary Woolfe of the NY Times tweeted earlier today that he was listening to Virgil Thomson's The Mother of Us All, which seems to me to be perfect for today's election. However, if you happen to be in NYC, there's this fabulous Orchard Circle program:

Tuesday, Nov 8th, Election night, 2016 at 8pm
DiMenna Center, Cary Hall
450 West 37th Street, New York, New York

Election Night Bash
Berlin Philharmonic members

Eric Moe, Charles Wuorinen, Sebastian Currier, and Nathan Currier

Orchard Circle will have its inaugural concert, with leading members of the Berlin Philharmonic including their Concertmaster, on what is shaping up to be our nation's craziest night in recent memory - election night, November 8th, 2016.
