Rodney Posted December 31, 2017 Share Posted December 31, 2017 I used to be a member here under the name "ashleyparkerangel," posting on a variety of topics. I consider myself an Objectivist philosophically. In 2011, I shifted my musical focus to the field of art song. I have had my art songs and concert band pieces performed in Toronto (where I live); in Austin, Texas; in Chicago; in Chautauqua, New York; in Geneva, Illinois; in Elgin, Illinois; and in Munster, Indiana. I write the lyrics to almost all my songs, which typically concern or express reverence, aspiration, romance, independence, and the future. These themes also occur in those few songs for which I have adapted an existing text.
