Letter to the Editor: Commitment to the arts 

To the Editor: 

Thank you many, many times for that beautiful piece of writing by Liz Graves following an interview with me Saturday, June 27. I have been interviewed thousands of times in my career (not a boast, just a fact), and that was right there at the top. Her energy and deep commitment to the arts showed bright and clear that day. 

The online festival is winning many new friends for music both on and off Mount Desert Island. The Islander and Festival Associate Director Allison Kiger can be so proud of what you have achieved in a time crying for hope and positivity.
