It was incredible to finally see two months of preparation pay off. On April 29, the NYU College Libertarians hosted the Free To Be Art Gala with Students For Liberty and the Atlas Society. We brought together arts from across New York City to promote the role of art in a free society.
Among them, Tersi Bendiburg: storyteller, presented by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation; Rob Clove: music artist and activist; Joe Salvatore: theater director and creator of "Her Opponent"; and Lou Perez: head writer for We The Internet.tv

I was blown away by the talent of this orchestra and am so incredibly thankful to all those that helped, especially our wonderful conductor Bence Juhasz.
We recorded Vivaldi's Gloria, first movement, and Beethoven's Opferlied 121b, with a full orchestra.
