Humans of Hebrew College The Role of Melody

By Wendy Linden

music student

“I think that melody is the soul of life. That’s from a book by Percy Goetschius from 1917, but it’s my favorite quote. To produce melody from within is to understand your own soul and where you fit in life.”

(Jacob Harris, Prayer Leader Summer Institute student and Hebrew College resident choir, Kol Arev, member)
