“After playing Chopin, I feel as if I had been weeping over sins that I had never committed, and mourning over tragedies that were not my own. Music always seems to me to produce that effect. It creates for one a past of which one has been ignorant, and fills one with a sense of sorrows that have been hidden from one’s tears.”
— Oscar Wilde
Music is intangible. However fine arts organizations often struggle under the pressure to produce a type of success that can only be measured by physical means.
Music meets an emotional need and has the unique ability to speak a language that can be understood by all. And not only this – music conveys different meanings to different people instantaneously. When 80 musicians get on a stage and perform together there is certainly a vibrant energy that is palpable in the air. Music inspires humanity.
