The kids know best

I have alluded to the healing power of music many times. When we're feeling troubled, music has the power to uplift us, to help us celebrate this wonderful life that we find ourselves in. The kids know this instinctively. Check out this stunning rendition of the initial "Sunrise" fanfare from Strauss' great tone poem 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' (better-known as the theme from the movie '2001: A Space Odyssey'), performed by an unknown orchestra of little heroes. All my life, I have tried to write music like this - and I shall continue to do so!
