Marco Missinato is an artist, a music composer, a photographer, but mostly he's a messenger of peace.“Following our most joyful imagination by taking action is the key to the manifestation of the highest expression of ourselves in the physical journey.”(Marco Missinato, November 2019)In this episode of OWC RADiO, Composer Marco Missinato talks with Host Cirina Catania, about his early years as a child prodigy, his love of piano and music, and working as a photographer on one of Italy's leading magazines and his journey on life's spiritual path. We particularly loved his story about how he got the symphony director in Portugal to listen to his pitch about "Unfolding Secrets." An example of how the universe takes care of us if we just "put it out there." The result was a memorable symphony that will live in the hearts of the audience for years to come.
