Review for LQA Performing Arts Center, Bakersfield, CA, USA
I feel honored to make comments for the Arts 2011 campaign for LQ's performing arts center. LQ's has assisted in providing the introduction to the arts for many children who otherwise would not have that experience. LQ"s not only expose them to the arts, but educates them on the necesssary discipline and sacrafices that one has to utilize to be successful in life and to be a positive contributor to society. LQ's goes the extra mile to insure that all attendess get this opportunity. I have witnessed LQ's involvement to insure such by the financial committment made to make it so that everybody has the opportunity to be a part of a performance, either partcipating or viewing for the experince. Not asking for a financial payback in many instances. You wonder how LQ's is able to do this. I know for a fact that the owner could be in a very lucrative career but I believe that there is a stronger desire to empower other people to bring out their talents which helps them achieve confidence in themselves to go as far as they want to in a positive direction.

When I see an actor perform in all venues, I have a greater respect and know that they had a commitment to their craft which caused them to go the extra mile for whatever role, large or small, that they portrayed. The experience with LQ's has assisted in me discovering my hidden talents.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would not do anything different because LQ's goes the extra mile. However, the extra mile is the minimum that LQ's is doing. I am sure that LQ's would challenge its self to go even further if the necessary funds were available to assist.
