Music can take us from the depths to the heights,enlivening, challenging, soothing, releasing, connecting, inspiring, grounding, building community, crying out our inner-most joys, fears, sorrows.
Our excitement, our puzzlement, our searching, is expressed by music in ways beyond what we can articulate with words.
