As 2013 winds down, we take stock of what has come to pass, reflect on life’s changes and make our intentions for the New Year. I am so grateful for all the music in my life, and the opportunity to share it. Thank you for choosing to spend your time with Pan Harmonia.
I am a big fan of the late Irish poet, John O’Donohue, whose book, Beauty, The Invisible Embrace…Rediscovering the True Sources of Compassion, Serenity and Hope has inspired me countless times. If you aren’t familiar with his work, I encourage you to seek it out. He writes of beauty as “a human calling and a defining aspect of the Divine.” I feel that way about my work.
Pan Harmonia creates a lot of beauty. My collaborative musicians and I strive to reach out with our music to touch hearts and imaginations. I hope when you have attended one of our concerts, you have felt the vitality and exuberance that we feel as we play music, and that you have also experienced its transcendental power to touch, uplift and inspire.
This year we performed for more than 3000 people, kept ticket prices affordable, produced Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring, and we were voted one of the “Best Classical Ensembles” by Mountain Xpress readers again!
Our Chamber Music Messiah Concert raised over $2000 for Homeward Bound and Pan Harmonia’s Shining Light Project. Thanks to all who came out for this beautiful event!
On January 21, we will take the sounds of flute, bassoon and guitar to Craggy Prison. Heartfelt thanks to our donors, who make this outreach possible through their generous support. If you would like join in supporting this work, please CLICK HERE.
