Alfred Anderson Quotes
We would do a tour into the elementary schools every year, and then we did another kind of program where upper level students were brought into E.J. Thomas for a performance. What the Children's Concert Society did was share the cost with us, so although we were just doing excerpts, we could do it in a full production sense with orchestra and costumes.
Even with their combined support, the cost of mounting a production has proved to be too much. We have continued to do fine productions, and I've found it even more challenging because we have to adapt productions to the recital stage, and yet we're doing full productions with sets, lights and everything.
