Sport is Music, Music is Sport - Play the Game for the Love of Music
CultureAll and the United World Games: Two Initiatives for a Better World; One Voice for the Youth of Tomorrow.
A unique promotional concept in collaboration with the Klagenfurt Symphony Orchestra, the Musikverein and the United World Games,
a video featuring young musicians and athletes for an online media campaign associating sport and classical music,
a concert of the Klagenfurt Symphony Orchestra conducted by John Axelrod at the Konzerthaus in Klagenfurt.
Probably the two best known natural medicines for the body, mind, heart and soul are sport and music. It is my belief that sport is music and music is sport.
The physical and psychological demands require a unique and consistent level of virtuosity and technical brilliance.
That is why, here in Klagenfurt, host city of the United World Games, CultureAll Association, in partnership with the UWG and the KSO and Musikverein,
presents the concert and produces a video to encourage younger audiences.
Shakespeare wrote: "if music be the food of love, then play on."
Allow me to elaborate: If music and sport are also the source of well-being, then: Play the game for the love of music!
