  Mr. PERLMUTTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize and applaud 
Michael Linert for his contribution to the 2015-2016 Veterans History 
Project documentary film produced by the students and faculty of 
Westminster High School in Westminster, Colorado.
   The film, MEDIC!, highlights the stories of five brave veterans who 
served their country and their fellow veterans as combat medics. The 
Veterans History Project is a congressionally chartered project that 
works to collect, preserve and make accessible personal accounts of 
American war veterans. The stories of these veterans will forever be 
preserved in the Library of Congress American Folklife Center. As the 
director of orchestras at Westminster High School, Michael contributed 
a very moving original musical score--an invaluable addition to the 
   Michael enjoys a varied musical career as a cellist, countertenor, 
composer, and strings teacher. As a cellist, he has performed with the 
American Baroque Orchestra, Commonwealth Opera, QV Ensemble, and the 
Summer Rhapsody Symphony Orchestra. He performs recitals regularly and 
his compositions have premiered in the United States, Australia, and 
Colombia. He has also appeared as a vocal soloist with the Indianapolis 
Baroque Orchestra, Indianapolis Symphonic Choir Chamber Singers, 
Hartford Symphony Orchestra, Indiana University Opera Theater, and the 
Bloomington Bach Cantata Project. Additionally, he has performed with 
Ensemble Lipzodes at the XIV International Sacred Music Festival in 
Quito, Ecuador and as a member of the Carnegie Hall Chamber Chorus with 
the Tallis Scholars.
   Michael received a Bachelor of Music in Cello Performance degree 
summa cum laude from The Hartt School, a Master of Science in Music 
Education degree from Indiana University, and will soon receive a Vocal 
Performance Diploma from Indiana University.
   I extend my deepest appreciation to Michael Linert for his important 
contribution to the 2015-2016 Veterans History Project documentary
