a theatrical and musical walk
"I see music in the urban landscape. I hear music in every step I take."
- Frederick Miller
50 years ago, Frederick Miller signed "The Fires of Beltaine", concerto for piano and orchestra,
his final composition before disappearing suddenly. Today, I, who was by his side his whole life,
invite you on a commemorative walk through the streets of Ottawa to discover the
birthplace of his work and where our love story unfolded.
