American Musicians in N. Korea

New York Philharmonic member John Deak gives the Guardian a moving account of the orchestra's recent trip to North Korea. The last paragraph:

Many of us left our hosts with strings, which can be hard to get there, mouth pieces or reeds and stacks of music. The whole visit had lasted less than 48 hours. Most us were in tears for one reason or another when we landed back in the US. It was almost too much to take.

Let us hope the music will heal the souls. I'd love to have been there to witness such an event.

Thank you for alerting me to it.
