"Being totally engaged in the moment is the most uplifting thing I can do, and fortunately, I am able to do it frequently. When I'm engaged with 100 musicians and 2,000 listeners in a journey through a Mahler or Brahms symphony, there is a genuine and heartfelt human connection that goes beyond words. I feel the same depth of connection when I take a hike in the Colorado Rockies with my 5½-year-old son. His joy at what is is contagious."
