It starts with a love of music,
an appreciation of words,
and passionate communication,
and creative expression,
and the experience of having been inspired,
of having felt the magic
that sometimes gets created in live performance,
in the place where artists and audiences come together.

 

It grows – out of and into a sense of purpose;
to advocate on behalf of art, and spirit,
and the inspirational quality,
and with that comes a pledge –
to place and re-place the emphasis on essence and content,
and to create opportunities and environments that are richly rewarding,

 

Through the power of community,
and the energy of trust,
and a belief in the work and the vision,
and with the strength of stamina,
and the force of fulfillment,
it continues to expand.
