Our team has come to know that in this life, there are many forms of song. All of us, individually and at times, collectively, have had to part with people and places we love and move forward into new territories when plans and dreams have changed. With these changes in life come the changes in the songs we sing, listen and relate to.
In Ancient Greece, an elegy was a form of poetry and song in which the poet expressed grief, sadness, or loss. An elegy carries a heaviness to it; an internal weight of the writer which was expressed through a musical medium of verbal and nonverbal communication.
While we know that in this life there are many reasons for elegies to be sung, we also know this means that songs of hope and life need to be sung that much more.
In music, an Aria is an accompanied melody sung by a single voice. The word literally translates to “air.” When an aria is performed in an opera, it is a pivotal moment when the soloist has their moment on stage. They are backed by the orchestra, who does not wish to steal the spotlight, but to provide support and complement the musical story unfolding. It is usually part of a larger piece, independently significant yet part of the story arc.
Our team exists in this space to come alongside you and your loved ones while you are grieving, hurting and struggling, and to bring air and life to an Aria that is yours.
And so here our team finds ourselves beginning to write a melody … one we wish to play alongside you as you take hold of your stories and find the place where breath becomes life.
And don’t worry, we’ll bring the music.
