"The Music comes from a quiet dedication to the organic impulse towards creation. It is about healing both oneself and those who can feel/hear the vibrations and keep themselves in tune. It is based in a belief that art has this power and we do. Tonight, with all compositions, both written and spontaneous, we will seek to create harmony with the universe."
