Music Is More Than Just Sound

Throughout the year, professional musicians play concerts in Gammons Recital Hall. Tonight, I went to see and hear Michelle Cann, an incredible pianist.

I’m embarrassed to admit that I don’t like classical music. I don’t dislike it, but I’d rather listen to country/folk songs that tell stories in words. But Michelle completely threw herself into the piano—literally and figuratively—and made it so clear that she loved what she was doing. Listening with my eyes closed wouldn’t have been the same. Music is more than just sound.

Gammons concerts are required for students taking music lessons for credit (I take guitar and voice—I’m stoked for lessons to start next week!), and I probably wouldn’t have gone otherwise. But I’m glad I went and witnessed someone so in tune with her craft.

 

Here’s a short segment of Michelle’s concert.
