Program Notes

“The way we rise
from every sorrow in life
Is the most gorgeous thing I’ve seen”
-Rupi Kaur

It has become quite apparent that, in life, celebration comes in all shapes and sizes. We celebrate love, life, happiness, success, holidays and milestones. But we also celebrate freedom from pain, the life of a most beautiful soul, the memory of someone who deserves nothing but fireworks and champagne toasts, flowers and big white balloons. We celebrate the loss and the ‘see you laters’ as one takes the next journey onward wherever that may be. In happiness and in desperate sorrow, there is always something worth and deserving of a celebration.
