A warm speechless thank you to each one of you who help me dwell from day to day and beyond all this, in our common story beyond stories where our souls sing in perfect harmony. You are in my heart always. God bless you, dearest ones. 👼 👼 👼 Leon

Always with you

Choral music is not one of life’s frills. It’s something that goes to the very heart of our humanity; our sense of community; and our souls. You express [extend], when you sing [listen], your soul in song [in intercession]. And when you get together with a group of other singers [listeners], it becomes more than the sum of the parts. All of those people are pouring out their hearts and souls in perfect harmony, which is kind of an emblem for what we need in this world, when so much of the world is at odds with itself; that just to express, in symbolic terms, what it’s like when human beings are in harmony. That’s a lesson for our times, and for all time. I profoundly believe that.
