The comedienne Ellen DeGeneres jokes about how when we go to a yoga class or a meditation retreat or a reiki session, what we are actually doing is buying more time for ourselves because our time is really not our own. The world keeps spinning no matter what we do. We can't control it. "Time pops bubbles, kills energy, and drowns even the most beautiful". In this moment, however, I invite you to experience how time (rhythm) is measured in music. Music is the only true entity is the only true entity I know of that can manipulate time and make it our friend - even for a moment. When we enter into the concert experience, time can do many things. It can stop. It can speed up. It can slow down. The difference is that in music, time is harnessed and we can glimpse it's very essence. It does what we want it to do. We're suddenly friends. We no longer feel threatened, rushed or held back. We are no longer time's puppets. In music, time can bring us face to face with love, eternity, strength, and perseverance. It can even bring peace. We hope today's music does exactly that for you.
