Bite by Bekah Simms takes us on a journey where we introspectively rediscover ourselves. Followed by Beethoven where we revel in the angelic, blooming, daring and celebratory spirit of his and finally, Shostakovich's legendary 5th Symphony , which inspires us bravely to confront formidable challenges, and to ultimately transform the human condition, improving the world around us.
