Arianna joins other opera stars to honor Hillary Rodham Clinton

Glen Roven, who conducted the concerts on the steps of the Lincoln Memorials at Bill Clinton’s presidential inauguration ceremonies, was inspired to set Mrs. Clinton’s speeches to music following her defeat in the 2016 presidential race.

"Setting Hillary's words was a very emotional experience,” said Glen Roven. “Phrases that fly by in a speech are naturally elongated in a musical setting, and as I set each word, slowly and methodically I was in tears. When I mentioned this project to these singers, their immediate response was, 'I'm in.'"

The concert will be streamed on www.NationalSawdust.org, as well as other web outlets to be announced, on Friday, January 20 at 12:00PM.
