To Whom It May Concern: Bill To Fight Illegal Ivory

To Whom It May Concern: Bill To Fight Illegal Ivory

To whom it may concern:
I wholeheartedly support the ivory sales ban bill pending in New York State.
I am a piano player. And I realize that ivory piano keys are preferred by some pianists.
But a preference for ivory keys does not justify the slaughter of 96 elephants every day.
There are other materials which can be substituted for piano keys.
But magnificent creatures like these can never be replaced.
Music must never be used as an excuse to destroy an endangered species.
Music should be a celebration of life - not an instrument of death.

It was that good, but you would've expected nothing less than absolute mastery from a brilliant showman and tunesmith flipping through four decades of songs that have become the soundtrack of our lives. - GRAMMY.com
