ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(soft orchestral music)

- Pittsburgh is not just about this horrible

event that happened.

But it's about people coming together, from all faiths.

- As a conductor, it's so beautiful to help people

through all the music making.

(bright orchestral music)

Music has the ability to go deep in the soul.

- So whenever they said Concert of Unity,

Concert of Remembrance, I'm in.

- Last night, I dreamed of death.

It seemed I lay engulfed in blackness.

Yet some sense could mark for all the breathless gloom

the steadfast ray of one far candle shining

through the dark.

May their memory be a blessing.

(speaks in foreign language)

My God, my God, may these never end.

The sand and the sea.

The rustle of the waters.

The lightning of the heavens.

The prayer of the heart.
