It is the music of social cohesion, the music that builds community. It brings together people of different ages, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds, united in a love of great music… It is the only kind of music that connects people in the most profound ways.” Knight Kiplinger, Editor in Chief, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, Kiplinger’s Letter, and Kiplinger.com
