Young musicians have venue at River Days

Dear Editor:On behalf of the rapidly growing number of talented, young musicians and singers, I would like to thank Liz Phillips and the Basalt River Days committee for allowing me to organize a special concert for these dedicated and motivated kids!Liz arranged for a stage and sound crew for the sole purpose of giving these kids a venue for their music. We performed the first of what I hope will be many “Basalt’s American Bandstand” performances recently with great success and community support.The players and singers were professional and could not have been more grateful for this wonderful opportunity. A big thanks goes out to Stealth, Dylan Ross, Kelley Scrivens and to all of my students who really did shine in the spotlight!Thanks again, Liz. Including these young musicians in River Days meant more to them and me than you’ll ever realize.Tracy McLainBasalt
