Melodies of the Human Spirit

Every once in a while we meet someone who has been through extreme challenges in their lives, yet they seem to be affected in a positive way that helps them enjoy life more and bring so much light to others. Alice Herz-Sommer, a concert pianist and holocaust survivor, is one of those people.

At 106 years old, perhaps it is her passion for music that keeps her going and allows everything else it’s proper perspective. May we all be so blessed to discover what we love, and to use it as a resource for comfort, inspiration and courage.
