A very special moment indeed! Emmett Chapman is just now seeing for the very first time the exhibit for The Stick at MIM on April 20th with Steve Adelson of NY. There were only a few people present and I was grateful to be one of them. That afternoon at 1:00 pm Emmett & Steve gave a lecture and at 7:00 pm they also gave a concert. All of these events tied into the Musical Instrument Museum’s 5th Anniversary Gala. How proud I was to see Emmett receiving just a little bit of the recognition he’s due for his invention of this amazing instrument 40 years ago.
