There is nothing more powerful than being so ‘in flow’, that time feels like it is standing still. All art has the power to bring you so close to your own divinity that it transcends time and space. The best composers and compositions have that power. This concert takes the audience to that place where troubles and challenges fall away, and all the best ideas present themselves.
