“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” – John Lennon
I read John Lennon’s quote exactly one week after the idea of NARIA was born.
Inspired by immortal compositions, some of which I performed on stage and some only dreamt to, my goal was to write music using a contemporary language to reach the audience without limitations of musical tastes, age, and/or gender of geography.
To be able to create something of importance – whether it’s a piece of music, and in this case a group of women performing that music — without compromising or deviating from my original musical idea was always the intent and to have that realization occur is beyond words.
John Lennon is right – “a dream you dream together is reality.”
My reality became the power of being myself – all very scary and humbling at the same time.
