Music builds community. Many of my relationships formed or disintegrated as a result of music.
Music is an ether that connects and binds people. As social beings we generally seek a common ground. When that common ground is music, voilà! a connection forms. Connections build community and nothing beats community.
Lancaster City realizes this and does a great job promoting music within the community. A few weekends ago, I spent all Sunday immersed in the musical scene offered by Lancaster city. Starting with a street festival, followed by some piano playing in the street and ending in a park with a free concert. I can think of no better way to spend each Sabbath than taking in some tunes and enjoying the company of my music loving gals and pals.
Enjoy the music friends.
