“We ARE the Music”

John Britt, Lisa Maynard and Scott Farrell

If aliens landed, heard music for the very first time and asked us what it was, how would you describe it? What role does it play in human experience? Music is an expression of the human spirit. It enhances our joys and comforts us during times of challenge. Music can reflect the uniqueness of an individual and also be a means to join in solidarity with others. Music can be sweet and gentle, sorrowful, playful, inspiring, and wise. Music can transport us into the past or channel our hopes for the future. It can be as simple as a melody whistled on a garden walk, or as complex as a symphony orchestra. Join us for a service to appreciate and honor some of the ways that music nourishes us as individuals and binds us as a community.
