Hot Sheet for the week of Mar 6, 2017

UBC Music Hot Sheet | March 6, 2017

"The enormity of the universe revealed by science cannot readily be grasped by the human brain, but the music of The Planets enables the mind to acquire some comprehension of the vastness of space where rational understanding fails." ~Gustav Holst
