Between 1966 and 2004, I performed an average of one-hundred concerts a year all over Europe and North America and recently played Russia and Japan. whilst the lifestyle of all these peoples are so different, the reaction to the music is not; they are as one, and from the comments they make it is clear theirs is a shared spiritual experience. Each takes from it what they need to survive another day, is uplifted and transformed even if only for a few precious moments. In return we, the performers, get a spiritual gift from our audiences that is without compare. Together, we spend just a few of the finer moments this troubled world has to offer.

J. naThan corbiTT author of The Sound of The harvest: Music’s Mission in church and culture Music has the power to transcend the mundane. Through the musical experience, one enters into the presence of Otherness; a presence that unifies outside of the boundaries of self, race, class, and difference. Several years ago, BuildaBridge, an arts-education and intervention organization I co-founded in 1997, was providing a summer concert series in a local homeless shelter in Philadelphia. we asked a local concert pianist to provide the music, and here I begin to show my bias. Not that he was a bad pianist. He wasn’t, but I learned that his concerts where mostly in nursing homes. The shelter where he was performing is the largest in Philadelphia with nearly one hundred and fifty homeless children and their parents in residence. The location is depressing enough. The former mental hospital is in very poor repair with one wing closed because of broken floors and ceilings. Only the resident rats call it home. The once stately gates now provide a façade of safety in one of the toughest areas of the city, surrounded by vacant houses often home to equally menacing drug dealers and gunshots. 35
