“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” —Thomas Merton

    • • Host of Express Yourself! and uber volunteer, Brigitte Jia, was selected to play in an orchestra at Carnegie Hall. How did she get there? Yes, it is the old saying, “Practice, practice, practice,” Tune in to find out about art, ideas, and more.
    • What is art? Do you think of paintings, sculptures, animation, or museums? What about music, dance, acting, cooking, voice, gardening, speaking, writing, or martial arts?  Culinary arts and performing arts are definitely forms of art. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Joven Hundal notice the small things influence what we all consider as art. Brigitte also reads from her chapter, The Gift of Art, from the forthcoming book, Be the Star You Are!® for Boomers and Millennials.  Joven finds that history and art are connected.  Brigitte recounts her phenomenal and unique experiences playing violin with Davies Symphony, touring in the UK and Chicago, playing alongside Ariel Horowitz and Amos Yang, recording for Torchlight, playing at Carnegie Hall, and more exciting artistic adventures.

Appreciate art for what it is: creativity, skill, and expression.  Yes, Express Yourself!
