the legacy of orchestra

We are all different classical instruments. Unique in their origin and sound. I dreamt I was a Trumpet last night. The music that a trumpet can play can be beautiful on it's own. But when added to an entire orchestra it can be the missing piece that cinches the melody. How different and beautiful is the Israeli Shofar horn, how distinctive and proud is the Irish Bodhran. If all of our instruments played together and formed a unified orchestra, what grand music we would make. More beautiful than anything heard before. And who knows how far it may reach... and who might hear it.
