“The great thing about music is that it’s border-less. It’s a healing sort of art form.  For our kids to be a part of a program like the Building Cultural Bridges where, the world’s not so big and it’s not so different.  All these guests have come in and all have had a folk-song and a favorite story as a kid. To have music is something that transcends all. It’s such a universal sort of thing.”

Roger Daily, Education Director, Houston Symphony Orchestra
