Hope and Peace

Music for the Soul

Our spring symphony concert was originally going to be fun, movie music and spy themed music. However, after the conflict broke out in the Ukraine, they decided to shift the focus of the concert. A night of hope and peace seemed more appropriate right now as the world is in commotion.

Music has such a divine ability to bring peace to the soul quicker than words and in a deeper way. Music is the universal language and no barriers exist from country to country. Many times in my life I’ve felt the hope that only music can bring.

We will perform the Haydn Mass, Fanfare for the Common Man by Copland (even though it doesn’t have a flute part, it remains one of my all time favorites), Enigma Variations by Elgar, Intermezzo from Cavalleria rustica by Mascagni (the two flute parts only play on the very last chord), and on Friday night’s concert, we will also perform Ave Verum by Mozart.

I hope that wherever you are in the world, you will let music fill your heart with hope and peace and seek to find the good in humanity.
