ANNAPOLIS BRASS QUINTET FAREWELL CONCERT - 1993
"Elam Sprenkle's haunting evocation of Walt Whitman's poem 'Crossing Brooklyn Ferry' was performed off-stage, more a closing benediction on the house than an encore."

Walt Whitman's Crossing Brooklyn Ferry is a poem about a man taking the Brooklyn ferry home from Manhattan at the end of a working day. It is one of Walt Whitman's best-known and best-loved poems because it so astutely and insightfully argues for Whitman's idea that all humans are united in their common experience of life.
