A Complete Abridged History of Music (Part 2)*

October 24

* In the greater Alexandria, Minnesota, standard metropolitan statistical area.

A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians. ~  Frank Zappa

Part 2 is all about 2011, unabridged. I should note (so I will) that I did not include any large musician clusters (i,e., Central Lakes Symphony Orchestra; AAHS orchestra, band, and choirs) because that would offer too many opportunities for libel suits . . .
