Thousand Passions, A


Hinkel, Joshua V.

This inspiring work reminds us that we are all given a gift, and that gift is our passion. When we unite our passions as our community and commit to courageously fulfilling our gifts, we will be connected forever by one heartbeat. This is captured by the piece’s syncopated energy and uplifting melody.

Program Notes

We are all given a gift. That gift is our passion. The purpose of life is to find, develop and fulfill our passion. When we have the courage to accept our gift, we truly become alive. Imagine a community of the courageous, resolved to fulfill their individual passions, to supporting each other, and to celebrating the gifts of others. This community is alive. The symbol of life is the heartbeat. The stronger the life, the stronger the heartbeat. Our community may have a thousand different passions but if we commit to courageously fulfill our gifts, we will be connected forever by one heartbeat.
