John Rutter: The Importance of Choir
“Choral music is not one of life’s frills. It’s something that goes to the very heart of our humanity, our sense of community, and our souls. You express, when you sing, your soul in song. And when you get together with a group of other singers, it becomes more than the sum of the parts. All of those people are pouring out their hearts and souls in perfect harmony, which is kind of an emblem for what we need in this world, when so much of the world is at odds with itself…that just to express, in symbolic terms, what it’s like when human beings are in harmony. That’s a lesson for our times and for all time.” John Rutter  (As transcribed from an interview “John Rutter: The Importance of Choir” featured on JW Pepper Blog on March 15, 2015.  Click here to view the interview video or read the full transcript.)
