"As the arts inspire creativity in each of us individually, they breathe life into our communities." Julia Garnett
An earthquake in Haiti devastated much of that country, broke its infrastructure, and left thousands homeless. A week later, while most of the musicians of the Haitian Youth Orchestra were either dead or missing, the fifteen that survived set their own grief aside and played a concert to help raise the spirits of their community. People smiled and danced a little. They felt their hearts stir and knew that their music had not died, too.
