Dorine Sorber

“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.”

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“There is no feeling, except the extremes of fear and grief, that does not find relief in music.”

George Eliot

“Music, of all the arts, stands in a special region, unlit by any star but its own, and utterly without meaning ... except its own.”

Leonard Bernstein
