‘My ears were filled with beauty’ Says Psychotherapist

“The Tchaikovsky piece, the solo violinist, brought tears to my eyes. It was very moving, and this was my first occasion to bring my daughter to a symphony, and she describes having chills throughout the experience.” 
 

“The period instruments from China have a unique sound, it’s quite distinct, and very pleasing to the ear—different than Western music. So, to pick up the piece with Tchaikovsky with the Chinese influence—lovely! Lovely.”
 

“And the Tibetan drums [piece], I actually had two experiences. One [is] just how powerful the percussion instruments were during the performance, and then I felt sad for the destruction of the culture in Tibet.”
 

“I was glad to come today and revisit China and have my ears filled with beauty.”
