December 2015

Dear Friends,

It is already December and there are only a few weeks left to the year. Much has happened in the world in the last 12 months – some of it nice, heart-warming news but, most recently, there have been tragedies and the horrors resulting from violent acts, where people’s lives have been changed forever in unimaginable ways.

Music continues to be my constant companion, and with it always comes the demonstration of the complexities of life and the world. That music has many layers, and that the best of the intentions don’t always result as expected, while it offers us miraculous profoundness never imagined, gives us the sense that music is a living being, forever transforming its meaning inside each of us.

Now is the time to reflect on how we can go forward, having learned our lessons and taking solace in what we have learned. Let our spirits come together as we gather and form new energies for the New Year.

With best wishes,
