He said life and music are two inseparable terms and the joy of music can only be engaged by the living ones. Pointing out that music is an art and people of different culture enjoy different kinds of music, he said music has to be précised as it is the food of the soul.
Quoting Edgard Varese definition of music as ‘organised sound’, Hegui said music expresses joy and ‘peace of mind.’ For that reason, he said, music is said to keep the body and soul together and that it is also a therapy that heals the heart and stirs the emotions of a person.
The resource persons also elaborated on several other topics: the society in an age of cultural transformation; the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ; health and the challenges and roles of youth.
The two-day camp also featured competitions besides a Bible quiz, and sports.
