Thanks for good arts coverage

Thank you for running the story about the Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra in your February 21 edition. I appreciate your taking the space for some truly amazing kids doing some truly amazing music.

I also appreciated your taking almost that whole page for arts coverage. The Seattle Symphony was mentioned, as well as nine other choirs, orchestras, and arts happenings. When other newspapers are cutting back their arts critics and arts coverage in general, it is really really encouraging to see your commitment to this segment of our society.

Thanks so much.

Ruth Brewster, Executive Director, Bellevue Youth Symphony Orchestra
