In 1994, President Bill Clinton signed Proclamation 6716 designating September to be Classical Music Month. The proclamation aptly declares that “classical music speaks both to the mind and to the heart, giving us something to think about as well as to experience.” When we consider the many talented composers, conductors, and musicians who have created and shared classical music with us through the ages, it seems appropriate that we take time to honor them one and all for their wonderful artistry. So tune in to your classical music radio station, attend a local symphony concert, or checkout one of the books from the WU Reads Reading Guide and join us in celebrating this special month!
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”–Maya Angelou
