Weekly Music Nugget 9/ Unity

"People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts." - Paul Hindemith

     My life experiences verify this quotation.  Conflicts, both spoken and silent, sometimes appear during rehearsals but during a performance personal differences are put aside for the sake of performing well.  As this cycle repeats a bond forms between musicians. All of you sacrifice in some way to recreate a beautiful composition, and that process somehow connects you to each other.  On a rare occasion the level of musicianship and cooperation is so high that a beautiful spirit pervades the music and touches souls of both performer and listener.  Those moments reach heaven.
