4 Orchestras, ONE Community
Throughout history, cultures have expressed their joys and sorrows, triumphs and defeats through the medium of music. Music is in essence, a portal to the human soul. It allows us to communicate feeling and emotion that is universal to all people. There is no other medium that has such an effect on most every person in the world. It is important to foster and develop music making skills whether it is in band, orchestra, or choir, around a campfire or at home with friends and family. Music is a lifelong skill that will enrich relationships and life experiences. The study of music performance and theory can affect every facet of life by keeping us aware of the beauty and elegance that humankind is capable of.
