One of the things that I am truly missing recently is playing as a part of community orchestras. Conductors of various ensembles are continuing to connect with and inspire their musicians even while we can't meet in person. Dr. Paul Shewan, who is director of the Roberts Wesleyan College Community Orchestra, recently sent out some listening recommendations to the orchestra, and he said that it would be okay to share them online with you here too. ~Mona
I hope you are all doing well. As music can provide comfort in difficult times such as these, I thought I would send you a list of pieces that are meaningful to me. It is my hope that, if you explore some of these pieces, they will be encouraging and uplifting to you. Feel free to dialogue and/or create your own list. Mine is by no means extensive. Enjoy!
