Reading of the reaction by musicians to the $159 million, 22-month upgrade of Alice Tully Hall, part of Lincoln Center’s $1.2 billion renovation, I couldn’t help but long for the day when David will be recognized and appreciated for his vocal genius (and when the music he selects and writes conforms more closely to this dimension of his talent), and be invited to perform in places that cater to those who will by that time crave the kind of Archuexperience such venues offer.

I quite realize that those days are years away. David must surely cultivate his peer audiences (I guess), and have some fun exploring “who he is as an artist.” When his artistic oats sowing reaches its denouement, a singular focus will remain: The Voice.
