Celebrating the art that pulls us in and doesn’t let go.

This past February, I had the opportunity to fulfill one of my dreams since high school: experience a live performance of Richard Wagner's Overture to Tannhäuser. That may not sound like much of a dream to most people, but that piece of music literally changed my life the first time I heard it. Not only did it spark my ongoing passion for classical music, it marked the first time that I actually felt the power of art.
