Cloud9: Unity, Beauty & Service – Jack Lenz’ 3 Themes for Every Artist

Cloud9 is a podcast produced by Baha’i Teachings. Its aim is to feature interviews with artists and discuss what inspires them to make a positive contribution to the world. In this episode, Baha’i Teachings’ arts editor Shadi Toloui-Wallace interviews Canadian producer, composer, and musical director Jack Lenz. Jack shares his theory about three universal themes for artists, inherent and embedded in Baha’u’llah’s Teachings: unity, beauty and service. Shadi and Jack discuss these themes and how he strives to weave them into his own work as a composer; how he’s learned to rely on prayer and call on spirits and souls in the next world to guide his creative process. They talk about the importance of routine to excel in one’s craft, and learn about an exciting new songbook project that he’s just completed, as well.

  1. What an incredibly inspirational interview! This was for me by far the best attempt to explain how art can uplift the soul and create longing to go beyond this earthly realm. Thank you so much for this!
