In writing ‘Opera Veritatis,’ I am hoping to offer insightful and thoughtful articles as I share my passion for music and life. I am a conductor and composer and play violin, viola and percussion; music is my passion and I am trying to build a fulfilling life in music. Classical music has been my life since I was a child–it informs everything I do.
I believe in the goodness of people: in their capacity to do good works, to be compassionate, to offer and receive hope. I believe in empathy; in compassion, not in pity; in understanding, not judgment; in persistence, not pessimism. I believe that love is the greatest gift in the world, for by giving it to others one may only receive more. It is an endless resource, simple yet incredibly powerful. And above all, I believe in love: all-encompassing, unconditional, deeply passionate love. Whether it is love for an idea, an experience, a religion, a philosophy, a friend, a family member or romantic love, we are all capable of it and deserve to experience it. I hope to share this in these ‘works of truth.’
