Simply Symphony!

Went to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center tonight to watch the AISD All City/State choirs sing. Our Elem., Jr. High, and High School students each did a selection of songs, and then they all sang together. What a beautiful job our fine arts teachers are doing with our students! Two of my nieces sang in the choirs, and of course they were most magnificent!
My favorite songs were Loch Loman... beautiful job... and Humpty Dumpty...cute and amusing! Music always seems to lift one's spirits and strengthen the soul. On that note... a few thoughts for today!
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.  ~Berthold Auerbach

All deep things are song.  It seems somehow the very central essence of us, song; as if all the rest were but wrappages and hulls!  ~Thomas Carlyle

And the night shall be filled with music,
And the cares that infest the day
Shall fold their tents like the Arabs
And as silently steal away.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Day Is Done
