Art of all forms, whether it be through painting, dance, sculpting, music, visual media or design, allows us to catch a glimpse of what human expression is capable of showing us and making us feel. Through a medium that consists of a collective group of people that make sounds and play instruments, music transcends the reality that we live in day to day, and inspires us to seek beyond what we know. Through music we are shown a pathway to mitigate human suffering; which can be transformed into positive energy for the world. Music exists as a means by which through expression, we can free ourselves from the limitations of society and reality so that we can coexist in harmony and understanding; increasing the human potential for happiness. Music, and art as a whole, is vital to human existence to show us the unlimited potential of happiness and beauty in the world." -Sophia Trevor
