“Life ends when you stop dreaming, hope ends when you stop believing, love ends when you stop caring, friendship ends when you stop sharing… so share this with whom ever you consider a friend.”–Unknown

I love the fact that communities get together to share.  One of the finest expressions of artistic sharing can be found this weekend at the Utah Arts Festival.  Everything from folk artisans to contemporary classical music.  I had the pleasure of conducting a concert with the Salt Lake Symphony last night to open the events on the Festival Stage.  There are several other stages, large and small, that present everything from beat poetry to bluegrass this weekend.  The street performers are amazing this year.  The artisan booths are varied and interesting, and oh, the music!  I really look forward to the composition premieres on Saturday afternoon.  If you are within striking distance, this is an event not to be missed. Creativity abounds!
