Music in Your Community (November 05)

Music in Your Community

The importance of music is its power to transcend time, emotion, culture, and language as we connect with others. Like food and water, music has nourished man for generations--often bringing tears to our eyes. Music's power connects us across the barriers of time, culture, and language.
The bond of music unites us--sometimes highlighting our similarities, sometimes celebrating our differences.
