THE POWER OF MUSIC TO FOSTER UNITY IN DIVERSITY

submitted by Lynn Smith

“Monday Morning Music” is my biggest joy each week! For a little over an hour each Monday morning there is a hall in our small town of Duncan, BC, Canada that just rocks with friendship, companionship and music—lots of music!

What does “Monday Morning Music” look like? Visualize a back-up band of professional musicians – could be a country band, or a rock band – it doesn’t matter as these guys can play most any style of music you like! We have a fantastic keyboard player, a rocking lead guitarist, and a bass guitarist who has a million songs tucked in his back pocket. Picture me standing on stage and looking out at a sea of happy faces, all potential star performers. I love this participatory audience of about a hundred people who come every week to sing along, dance, and perform. Members of the audience are invited to come to the microphone, choose a song they would like to sing, and away we go! Can you see my heart soaring with gratitude to see how music unites and brings together such a diverse group of people? Continue reading
