Tonight in orchestra rehearsal we worked on the hypnotic piece, “Freedom,” by Milad Yousufi.
Yousufi was born in 1995 during the civil war in Afghanistan. At that time the Taliban were ruling Afghanistan, and music was completely banned.
I encourage you to learn more about this young, powerful composer. We (the Me/2 Orchestra) plan to perform Freedom, along with selections from Mozart and Berlioz, on January 23 at Boston’s Symphony Hall.
