"No two people on earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or it isn't music." Billie Holiday
Musicians, their instruments and compositions from a concerto to a song all have stories to tell. David Grohl wrote, "...every person has a voice to be heard, no matter the sound.” Musicians find patterns and meanings where others find none. Richard Antoine White shared, “I hear Bach and Mahler in rap. Music allows me to go to a third dimension, it allows me to leave any issues with the world behind.”
