About the concert

Discover the power of silence and sound to elevate your state of being

Enjoy the meditative and soul-stirring music of composer and spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy, arranged and performed by several vocal and instrumental ensembles in a variety of musical styles.

soulful_playing_cello.jpgWhen we listen to soulful music, or when we ourselves play soulful music, immediately our inner existence climbs up high, higher, highest. It climbs up and enters into something beyond. This Beyond is constantly trying to help us, guide us, mould us and shape us into our true transcendental image, our true  divinity.

When we hear soulful music, or when we play a soulful piece of music, we feel a kind of inner thrill in our entire existence, from the soles of our feet to the crown of our head. A river is flowing through us, a river of consciousness, and this consciousness is all the time illumined.

– Sri Chinmoy

During his lifetime, Sri Chinmoy composed thousands of lyrical songs both in English as well as his native tongue, Bengali. Sri Chinmoy believed that music is a universal language through which the hearts of the performers and the audience can blend together.
