I understand that today, July 19, is Evelyn Glennie's birthday. This gifted Scottish precussionist is deaf. She studied music from the age of 12, learning how to play by the vibrations she feels. It is argued that she is now, perhaps, the world's foremost percissionist. We have stuff to complain about here on the LPSG. But few embrace our--how can I put it?--challenges the way she has. I'm listening to an extraordinary drum solo on NPR as we speak. Wow!
