Melissa Schmaedick summed up the last concert with this: “People that play together stay together!”
Her statement conjured up what I was feeling as I checked out the familiar and bright new faces interacting throughout the community. I am delighted by the energy of these budding young families, innovative entrepreneurs, and socially dedicated activists that really care about creating a thriving community in this cantankerous desert town we call Moab.
Much gratitude to everyone involved for bringing us all together to romp and play!
P.S.: I encourage the city to consider building a permanent stage designed for quality acoustics. It would save all the work required for setting up and breaking down the portable stage that the music festival donated. The steel gazebo is not designed with acoustics in mind! Ridgway, Colorado, has a nice example of a simple outdoor performance stage. Thank you all.
