It is hard to separate music from spirituality, as it can be said that
music always has a certain spiritual aspect. It has a tremendous
power to reach and touch the human spirit in amazing ways. Music,
in this sense, transcends time, places, boundaries and even language.
Music Director Manfred Honeck continues to explore the
relationship between spirituality and music in the inaugural Music
for the Spirit Festival, an extraordinary city-wide series of
concerts, lectures, a book club and special events. Through Music for
the Spirit, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra demonstrates its deep
commitment to the power of music to promote and spread a
spiritual and universal message.
