As part of the Atlantic Music Festival (AMF), strengthen the body/enliven the soul will be premiered by the AMF Contemporary Ensemble.  This piece refers to the following scripture:

"Yea, all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart; Yea, for food and for raiment, for taste and for smell, to strengthen the body and to enliven the soul."

Doctrine and Covenants 59:18-19

Nature and what comes from it has the power to strengthen and enliven us.
