This past Thursday, November 3, 2016, I finally had the opportunity to meet with Professor Christopher Kleinhenz in person during a lecture he was giving in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.  Professor Kleinhenz and I have been talking via the phone and sharing information about the project since July 2016.  This was the first time we met face to face and we were excited to talk in depth about the project before his lecture. Later that evening, I was able to attend his brilliant lecture, Poetry and the Visual Arts in the Medieval World: Dante's Divine Comedy.  The timing could not have been better as I was already working on the composition for the first panel this weekend.  Once again, I'm so grateful that Professor Kleinhenz will be working with me closely throughout the project to advise me on my compositions so that they stay true to the original intent of the poem written almost 700 years ago.
