Healing Power of Music

Last evening, I was truly blessed to be able to hear Michel Bell in concert. He and his wife, an outstanding pianist, were performing at a local university’s music series. As I listened to this gifted vocalist, I thought about the healing, therapeutic powers of music. To be totally engrossed in listening to the musical gifts of a performer is truly a transformational experience.

I can’t help but think that it is physically healthy, as well as emotionally enriching, whenever we find ourselves completely engrossed in the sheer joy of watching a consummate performer display his or her skills. For a brief period of time, attending this performance completely allowed me to escape the reality of my increased symptoms.
