To the Editor:
A wise person once told me that submitting a partial list of thanks is, well, unwise.

Therefore, I wish to extend my personal and deeply heartfelt thanks to all who made Manchester Music Festival's 39th summer season the resounding success that it was.

My thanks cut a very broad swath that ripples throughout the community: Donors (business, individual, Foundation) who make it financially possible for any of this to happen. Parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters who participated in MMF's Music Discovery Week.

All of our superlative faculty and guest artists and Young Artists for the magic and beauty created on stage, in chamber music ensemble coachings, Play-Ins and Master Classes. MMF's Board of Directors, Associates, Friends and volunteers who help in so many different ways.

Our hard-working full and part-time staff and all of the good people at the venues where we performed. And, of course, the audiences who were with us in larger numbers than ever before.

All of us at Manchester Music Festival thank this remarkable community for sustaining us, and we encourage your future support as we move directly into a full slate of fall/winter activities and onward to our celebratory 40th Anniversary Season!

Thanks to all!
