HGSE music


From the Harvard Graduate School of Education diploma ceremony last week, Stephen Sondheim’s “Children Will Listen,” performed by Aditi Chakravarty, Ben Leddy, and Danielle Williams. If you watch closely, you’ll see at least one professor tearing up. Many non-Harvard eyes teared up too. (Trust me.)

Ben is playing a guitar that belonged to our great friend Rob Zseleczky. If you want to see Ben holding a diploma instead of a guitar, move ahead to 1:24:20.

Wonderful. Just when I think that Ben can't impress me more. Tracy and I enjoyed the song very much and cheered when Ben successfully negotiated the diploma/handshake obstacle course. Thanks for posting it.

Thanks, Stefan.
