This will be our reply…

This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. – Leonard Bernstein

concert rehearsal, Cork

The La Jolla Symphony Chamber Chorus. Rehearsal in Cork, Ireland, 2010.

Let’s believe that a more beautiful world is possible. Let’s take a moment to reaffirm our humanity even if others seem to have forgotten. Let’s bring balance back to the cosmos after so much hurt. And let’s remember that someone is having a bad day somewhere, everyday… On the days that someone isn’t us, let’s make beautiful music in thanksgiving. On the days it is our turn, let’s make beautiful music in the hopes that, through our efforts, better times are to come.
