Concerts motivated youth to learn instruments

-A +A
We wanted (to let Mr. Dean Prigmore, president of the Auburn Community Concert Association) know how much Auburn Community Concerts have enriched our family. We have been attending these concerts for approximately the last seven years. We had to leave at intermission when our kids were younger because they sometimes got bored. They are now 11, 13 and 15 years old and enjoy the whole show. The last concert of the 2007 season featured a wonderful guitarist named Muriel Anderson. Her concert motivated our daughter who was 12 at the time to come home and start practicing her father's guitar. She has now surpassed him in skill and he is very proud of her. This motivated her older brother to start playing the guitar and he is also doing very well. He has also started playing the banjo since then. So we wanted (Mr. Prigmore) to know that (his) concerts do more than entertain people, they motivate children to pick up an instrument and learn it! Please keep up the great work!
