“Even though music is often without words, it has a tremendous power to reach and touch the human spirit in amazing ways.”— Manfred Honeck
At one point or another, we’ve probably all experienced the transformative power of music. Music can bring us closer to others and provide comfort when we’re feeling down. It can also spread a message of hope, as described by Manfred Honeck in our new video about Music for the Spirit, a collaboration in which the PSO partners with faith communities to celebrate the spiritual nature and universal message of music.
If the video inspires you to experience this unique program firsthand, come see the orchestra perform a semi-staged version of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion at Heinz Hall on March 4 and 6. We’d love to see you there!
