• JG,

    Thanks for adding the comment about the musicians staying in people's homes. We were fortunate enough to have Gayle Garcia, a viola player from Sugarland, stay with us. She was so delightful. Her presence on stage Friday night enriched my enjoyment of the performance. We were treated to a spectacular show and made a new friend. A double gift.


    We'll check into the report of the vandalism at the youth sports complex.. I received an e-mail Saturday about how this affected the H-E-B courts from the Victoria Tennis Association, so there apparently is something to this. What a pity.

  • i heard the bach event  at the welder center on public radio this past week.  very nice on the radio but I am sure we gave the performers a great hand!

    Chris- on a differ note.  Is it true the $9 million sports complex is all graffti up!!!!   If so you guys should cover this.  This complex will be a huge public draw if its pristine not punked!

  • Well said!  Victoria can do things FIRST CLASS, and the thousands of people who enjoyed events at Taqueria to the Welder Center to the Opera House prove that.  In a world where there is plenty to complain about, we have something to brag about.  Where else in the world do citizens open tjheir homes to hudnreds of musicians and provide the opportunity to make music from Clapton to Bach!  Victoria;   pat your self on the back.  JG
