Something Revealed: Hearing God's Face in Classical Music

A concert with commentary featuring Samuel SENTMANAT and Ferenc ILLENYI

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center

The focus of this event is on discovering the very foundation of music, viewed as the most sincere and moving expression of human experience, of the universal human desire and expectation for beauty, for happiness, for a mysterious Other who will fulfill the promises of the heart. The late Msgr. Luigi Giussani, speaking of the role that music played in his life and in his pedagogical method, once said: "In music, in nature's landscape, in a nocturnal dream, ...what man pays homage to is something else, something he is waiting for: he is waiting for it. His enthusiasm is for something that music, or whatever is beautiful in the world, has awakened inside him. When man "fore-sees" this, he immediately bends his soul to wait for the other thing: even in front of what he can grasp, he awaits something else: he grasps what he can grasp, but he waits for another thing."

The event is open to the public and free of charge.
