"Art, and, above all, music, has a fundamental function, which is to catalyze the sublimation that it can bring about through all means of expression. It must aim through fixations which are landmarks, to draw [one] towards a total exaltation in which the individual mingles, losing his consciousness in a truth immediate, rare, enormous, and perfect. If a work of art succeeds in this undertaking even for a single moment, it attains its goal."iannis xenakis

Press on, press on!benjamin, park, sr.

But the more an organization succeeds and prospers, the more it is likely to be diverted from its original ideals, principles and purposes.robert shea
