Chairman Kovner, President Polisi, most distinguished honorees, dedicated family, friends, faculty, and to EACH of the talented, ambitious, courageous, adventurous Juilliard graduates of the class of before us here today, thank you! I stand before you this morning, duly humbled, and in awe of the distinguished and hard-earned accomplishment awarded to each and every single one of you on this unforgettable and long-awaited day of your graduation.
Look at you! Through that first nerve-racking audition, Night Walking - DZ Deathrays - Black Rat those subsequent sleepless nights, the painstaking preparation for your recitals, the endless hours of reed-making and memorization, the blisters and the tears, and now here you walk side by side with the life-long friendships you have now Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break , you are about to be Alumni of the acclaimed Juilliard School!
I invite you to breathe that in. You, my friends, are living the dream! I wish I had had the foresight when invited to speak here today, to ask them to break with tradition and print my old biography from when I was your age instead of my current one! That is the truth. One never, EVER knows where their journey will lead them. I offer these four little observations as tools to perhaps help you as you go forward, enabling you to empower yourselves from the very core of your being, so that when the challenges of this artistic life catapult and hurl themselves directly and unapologetically into your heart and soul — which they will do, repeatedly — you will have some devices at your disposal to Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break to, to help you find your center again, so that your voice, your art and NothingBout Me - Sting - Live In Japan 1994 SOUL will not be derailed, but you will instead find the strength to make yourself heard, and seen, and FELT.
Then you will have the power to transform yourselves, to transform others, and, indeed, to transform the world. You will never make it. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, right here, right now, in this single, solitary, monumental moment in your life— is to decide, without apology, to commit to Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break JOURNEY, and not to the outcome.
There will always be more freedom to acquire and more truth to uncover. As an artist, you will never arrive Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break a fixed destination. THIS is the glory and the reward of striving to master your craft and embarking on the path of curiosity and imagination, while being tireless in your pursuit of something greater Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break yourself. The work will never end.
This may sound dreadfully daunting — especially today when you are finally getting out of here!!!! Often times it will be the only thing that makes sense. And it is there where you will find solace and truth. Be patient, but know that it will always be there for you — even if Paname Vue Des Blocks - Vincenzo Présente Various - Vue Des Blocks III some moments you lack the will to be there for it.
All it asks is that you show up, fully present as you did when you first discovered the magic of your own artistic world when you were young. Bring that innocent, childlike sense of wonder to your craft, and do whatever you need to find that truth again. It will continually teach you how to be present, how to be alive, and how to let go. Therein lies not only your artistic freedom, but your personal freedom as well!
The truth is, you have signed up for a life of service by going into the Arts. You, as alumni of the th graduating class of The Juilliard School are now servants to the ear that needs quiet solace, and the eye that needs the consolation of beauty, servants to the mind that needs desperate repose or pointed inquiry, to the heart that needs invitation to flight or silent understanding, and to the soul that needs safe landing, or fearless, relentless enlightenment.
You are a servant to the sick one who needs healing through the beauty and peace of the symphony you will compose through blood-shot eyes and sleepless Samo Ti - Milo* - Samo Ti. You are an attendant to the lost one who needs saving through the comforting, probing words you will conjure up from the ether, as well as from your own heroic moments of strife and triumph.
You are a vessel to the angry and confused one who needs a protected place to release their rage as they watch your eyes on the screen silently weep in pain as you relive your own private hell. You are also serving one other person: yourself. You are serving the relentless, passionate, fevered force within you that longs to grow and expand and feel and connect and create; that part of you Only Your Love - Savana - Yutes Dem Hustlin´ craves a way to express raw elation and passion, and to make manifest hard-core blissful rapture and — PLEASE, I beg of you, never forget this — FUN!
Thought that, you are serving your truth. My hope for you is that you will let that truth guide you in every moment of your journey. If you can find that, you have everything.
Audrey Hill, who is fighting the great fight! This boy was new to our school this year, has a beautiful singing voice, and has been teased a lot. I have seen him getting more and more angry as the year was coming to a close and today it seemed like all that had disappeared.
It was very moving for me to experience. The world needs you. Now, the world may not exactly realize it, but wow, does it need you. It is yearning, starving, dying for you and your healing offer of service through your Art. We need you to help us understand that which is bigger than ourselves, so that we can stop feeling so small, so isolated, so helpless that, in our fear, we stop contributing that which is unique to us: that distinct, rare, individual quality which the world is desperately crying out for and eagerly awaiting.
We need you to remind us what empathy is by taking us deep into the hearts of those who are, God forbid, different than us — so that we can recapture the hope of not only living in peace with each other, but THRIVING together in a vibrant way where each of us grows in wonder and joy.
We need you to make us feel an integral PART of a shared existence through the communal, universal, forgiving language of music, of dance, of poetry and Art — so that we never lose sight of the fact that we are all in this together and that we are all deserving of a life that overflows with immense possibility, improbable beauty and relentless truth.
What an honor it is to share in this day with you — savor every single moment of it — and then fly out of this building, armed with the knowledge that YOU make a difference, that your art is Untitled - Elisha Morningstar - Last Spring Break , and that the world is eagerly awaiting to hear what YOU have to say.
Go on, make us laugh, cry, dance, FEEL, unite, and believe in the incredible power of humanity to overcome anything! Neoclassical Post classical and neoclassical music. Home About. My first observation: You will never make it.
