“A bird does not sing because it has an answer.  It sings because it has a song.”  – Chinese proverb


It’s been said, “People are always good company when they are doing what they really enjoy.”  For a dedicated ensemble, that enjoyment is evident in every note, and this episode features music from several all female ensembles, including an all-female orchestra whose members literally put their lives at risk in order to perform.
