Ned Rorem - 5 April, 1979

from The Nantucket Diary of Ned Rorem 1973-1985, page 241:

Last evening at the academy, annual pre-induction dinner. Although this included painters and writers, only we composers were required to confirm ourselves by providing entertainment, for which we were paid. In my case a group of songs, including the setting of Elizabeth Bishop's "Visits to Saint Elizabeths," with me accompanying Will Parker.
