New video up! by Ryan Whyman

There are many experiencing deep sorrow at this many moment.  My heart aches for the displaced Syrian refugees, the victims of ISIS, the victims of the various terrorist attacks that have taken place this last month, the victims of the shootings within the US, the oppression that is a regular part of the world we live in... My prayer for some time now has been that my music my be used to heal a broken world. This pieces was played not only to communicate the deep sadness experienced by so many in the world, but to also communicate the beauty that can be found in even the darkest times. 
In the words of Leonard Bernstein - "This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."
Dedicated to all who have experienced loss in their lives.
