The Music: Local & Live in January
By KRIS YOUMANS, Special to The Paper
Music has helped us stay connected during the pandemic and social distancing. It’s always a good outlet for the changes and challenges we are experiencing because you know you’re much more positive when you’re listening to live music, online music, or a favorite song on the radio. Feel your inspiration in a song and share what you’ve found in the joy of music!
“Music gives a soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination & life to everything.”… Plato
