Welcome!

Dear Friends,

Welcome to this website, and thank you for visiting! This Blog is a space that I will be using for announcing events, discussing and sharing music (all kinds), and hopefully engaging in a dialogue with other music lovers out there in cyberspace.

I recently read an extremely inspiring speech by Karl Paulnack, Director of the Music Division at the Boston Conservatory, that captured everything I felt about music but had not been able to express. It also added conviction to some of my beliefs that were perhaps on shaky grounds beforehand – some ideas that I struggled with for myself. What is the purpose of music, and why are we drawn to it? Why is it necessary, and how does it enrich our lives? Why is it indispensable?

“Music allows us to move around those big invisible pieces of ourselves and rearrange our insides so that we can express what we feel even when we can’t talk about it,” Paulnack says. “Music is one of the ways we make sense of our lives, one of the ways in which we express feelings when we have no words, a way for us to understand things with our hearts when we can’t with our minds.”

With these beautiful thoughts, I’d like to start off this blog, and promise more posts to come soon!
