As we look back at the month of July and prepare for a busy fall season, we appreciate the the incredible opportunity provided to us by the Smithsonian Institution’s Folklife Festival.
We appreciated meeting the incredibly talented participants who shared the stages with us at this summer’s Festival. We must also express our profound gratitude and respect to the staff, interns, and volunteers who with us endured both record high temperatures and big thunderstorms with grace and resilience.
And last but not least, we would like to thank our parents. With your embracing support, we know we can do big things in the future!
