LETTER TO THE EDITOR

On behalf of the team at NPR's From the Top, I want to give a big thank you to the El Paso Summer Music Festival for hosting our live concert recording June 1 at the Plaza Theatre.  This is our second visit to El Paso and once again we were impressed by the energy and spirit of cooperation that exists in the arts and music community.  From the ice cream social hosted by the students at the DaVinci School last Friday, to rehearsals at UTEP's School of Music, through the show at the incredible Plaza and then finally to bring our young musicians for a workshop at the YWCA's Transitional Living Center, we were embraced by a spirit of warmth (ok, it is really hot here!) and generosity that makes El Paso a very special place.


Thank you El Paso and we look forward to visiting again!
