The first recurrence of Wakuwaku is upon us with a new conductor to lead us in the quest to fill young hearts with the joy and excitement of music. It's amazing how much a different conductor and a few different players in the orchestra can effect the sound and message of the music. I wonder if I could ever get tired of observing different energies on the podium, how different bodies and gestures and words create different outcomes. There seems to be no end to the possibilities and it's an inspiring reminder for the importance of each person to find their own personal expression and share it with the world. What more can we learn about this music that we had never heard before? What more can we learn about one another and the world by our shared presence?
