A soprano belting out an aria on stage. A third grader playing a not-so-tuneful version of hot cross buns on a recorder. An Irish session in a pub. A marching band stepping in formation across the field. An impromptu drum circle in the park. A choir joined in praise. The rock band rehearsing in someone’s garage or basement. The toddler dancing to their favorite song on the radio. A father singing a lullaby.
Music is about connections, emotions, memories, and good times. It’s about heart and passion. It’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying some new. It’s neurons and tendons and breath. It’s about being a part of something bigger than yourself and yet it’s intimate and personal. It’s rhythm and melody and luscious harmony. It can be immensely powerful and yet is easily accessible.
What does music mean to you?
