Rap, tap, tap goes the riff on the cymbal as the piano plays mezzo forte and the alto sax
and trumpets file in with a response. The composition of compelling music can be tran-scendent.
It can enable one to escape, to dream, and to perhaps surrender.

of the award-winning “Surrender” home is displayed on a flat screen in the conference
room. The moonlit image captures Surrender’s illuminated frame.
