PSALM is about endings and beginnings and so always concerned with the fundamentals of life. Spring is a special time of year, when we lay aside our thick winter coats, the snow melts and nature reawakens. At this time of powerful change, we consider the big questions in life. Where do we come from? Where are we going? PSALM tells of the intriguing similarities and delightful differences between cultures and religions.
Be The Change
What can we all do to make the world a better place, with more justice, freedom and safety? This is the question PSALM 2022, the Graz Easter Festival asks, and in so doing connects to a remarkable and very topical campaign. With its “17 Sustainable Development Goals”, the United Nations is striving for nothing less than a better world, and the great thing about it is that every single one of us can take part and begin right away. So the obvious thing to do is take up the UNO’s idea in our Easter festival, PSALM, and join in. After all, people have been asking themselves and seeking answers to questions of this kind for thousands of years, and in the arts too. For our new PSALM programme, we have selected seven of the UNO’s 17 goals to illustrate with our very own medium, great music, spanning a range from Africa to the North Pole and from medieval song to contemporary pop music.
