Loving You CD
Music is the most profound expression of shared human experience. At times of joy, at times of great sadness, when we seek solace or refuge, when we seek to share happiness and love, we can do this through music. Betsy Foster is a composer of insightful melodic works that tie rich harmony to a passionate expression of a human soul. Betsy studied music from an early age, culminating in her graduation from Longwood College in Virginia with a degree in Piano Performance. Sidetracked for many years in a legal career, Betsy began a renewed love affair with musical composition following a debilitating illness. Passion is the force behind her music, evident in the power of the emotion experienced through her compositions. Betsy is fortunate in a unique skill that allows her to compose in response to her own feelings and to maintain relevance for the listener, so that they too can feel the impact of her expression. Some have described Betsy's music as 'New Age' comparing it with writer/performers such as Jim Brickman. To classify Betsy's compositions as merely New Age would understate their true nature, which, while embracing the melodic fluidity best prized in new age music, also embody a much more stirring aspect of rich harmony that draws that oh so elusive emotional response from the audience. Betsy Foster's compositions have found a home in the hearts of many, and lovers of classical and contemporary artists alike are able to share an appreciation of her art. Those searching for a song to celebrate love, or to commemorate love, speak eloquently of the grace and fulfillment given to them by sharing Betsy's music. From the darkness of tragedy, Betsy Foster's compositions envelop the audience, and like an oyster, the music itself becomes a pearl that brings relief to pain, and adds luster to joy.
