The Music is Everywhere


Erin Moriarty writes, “Do you know what music is?

“Do you know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in the universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere,even the stars.” That’s a quote from August Rush, the movie about an orphan who loves music. He has no name, though he is called Evan Taylor. His parents didn’t know he existed. Evan not only likes music, he listens to it and follows its directions.Evan somehow lands at Julliard where, at age 12, he finds himself directing a concert that leads him home. August Rush is a great movie full of love, sadness, miracles, and, of course, music. “The music is Everywhere,all you have to do is listen.”
