    I love this quote from Andrew. I work with several classical music festivals and since their programming seasons are not all year round, with a limited number of concerts, I believe that a key to building loyal supporters and a broader audience base lies in developing a deeper feeling of community, rather than just a group of people who get e-mails, buy tickets and give money.

    Thanks Greg, for the public citation,

    To be fair, the statement was inspired by a keynote at an event I was hosting presented by ArtsJournal founder/editor Doug McLennan. Although, it’s an idea and a mission that seems to be popping up in many places these days (thank goodness).

    Of course I’m thrilled to give Doug a share of the credit. You and I — and, thankfully, many, many others — know how valuable he is.
