It may come as no surprise that at PBS we passionately believe in music as a moral law. It is because, as Plato wrote all these centuries ago, music ‘gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.’  

If music is where one finds what is good in the world, then it is our moral duty to support the good work of our all-too-human music makers. In a world that is becoming increasingly inundated with artificial creations, we find ourselves more committed to celebrating human ingenuity than ever before.
