    I think this was a wonderful, uplifting event for the audience as well as those of us who performed. The program was well organized and sequenced offering a range and breadth of artistic expression to which all could relate. Kudos to Ms. Bartos for all of her efforts and for the positive guidance and support she gave to the performers. I think all present left with lifted spirits. I'm glad I was a part of this meetup.
