“Music is the melody whose text is the world.” —Arthur Schopenhauer
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” — Maya Angelou
Music is integral to our lives. It gives voice to the feelings and thoughts that cannot be spoken. It has been used on battlefields as well as battles for the heart. It can heal and comfort as well as engender anger and hatred. It has been blamed for mass shootings as well as credited for bringing huge crowds together. It can reinforce cultural mores or break the rules. It fosters connections with the sacred and the profane. It is all around us.
