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