Great Music Quotations
Sense shines with a double luster when it is set in humility. An able and yet humble man is a jewel worth a kingdom.
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Music enters our bodies, commandeering the pulse in our veins, and reminds us that pleasure isn't a matter of feeling good but of feeling more alive.

My husband and I are folk music singers, and we perform songs that have been in existence in some form or another for hundreds of years! It is the music of the people, of their joys and struggles and ordinary moments. Music is a part of our humanity, an expression of our most raw emotions that go beyond words. I believe music is truly great when it is an honest, authentic expression of those emotions.
Because I have composed symphonies, concertos and string quartets, I have a deep connection to the idea of Great Music. The goal is human joy. Joy is both a perception of and a response to beauty. All Great Music contains beauty, a beauty which is recognized across cultures and across centuries. This is why most Pop Music cannot be considered "Great". Most Pop music is tied to one decade or two decades. Bach's music still gets us going 300 years after it was composed. We can only create Great Music when we look into ourselves, and find joy, and learn to express our joy.

Cynthia Miller, North Carolina
I love music. I love being at a concert when tens of thousands of people are singing a song back to the artist in unison. It restores my belief that the human race is capable of great and positive things. To me, it is hope personified and exemplified. It speaks directly to my soul and will often bring me to tears; to see so many people act in peaceful unity. Music is such a powerful motivator.
