Thank You from Winter Harp

At one of our concerts a woman remarked to her friend:  “When we go to sleep tonight, we’ll have Winter Harp’s magical music dancing in our dreams.”

And so it should be. Magical music should dance in our dreams and in our lives day and night.  And ‘magical music’ can be a smile passed to a stranger, a hearty laugh with a friend, a kind act to one in need.

2011 is almost over. It is poised to be swept into the past. And it takes with it the joys and sorrows that it brought. What heart has no cares? What soul no sorrows? Life has its ups and downs and through it all time ticks on. Adorable babies are born into our families. Loved ones pass away. Friends come and go.

Today the sun shines and the mountains are draped in snow. As I gaze upon them I wonder at the beauty of our world -- such a precious home in which we live.

Yes, life ticks on, but know that around you, in the crisp winter air, in the snow-covered trees, in the smiles and laughter of others -- there is magical music. Hold it in your heart. Let it dance in your dreams.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for inspiring us. Without you, Winter Harp and its music would not exist. We thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.

And now, may the beauty and holiness of the season rest with peace upon your soul.
And may the New Year bring you much health, joy and contentment.

Winter Harp Director
