Review for Pawleys Island Festival Of Music And Art Inc, Pawleys Isl, SC, USA
I became a Festival board member two years ago. During my tenure I have been extremely impressed with the dedication this group feels toward providing the best possible musical entertainment and visual arts experiences for the people of our community. Much time is spent to insure that all genres of music are presented and are appropriate for a wide range of ages. Much effort is given to booking performers who provide community outreach programs. The cost of tickets reflects a true desire to enable all people who enjoy musical and artistic experiences to participate. Complimentary tickets are often given to retirement home residents and school children who might not normally be able to attend. The musical events are located in some of
the most lovely outdoor natural settings in our community. Refreshments are always offered for audience enjoyment. Many of the performers indicate that they want to return because they feel
such a connection with the audience and appreciate the attention to
details that have been made to insure a successful, stress free performance. We are very fortunate to have an organization that focuses on such a cultural commitment for our community and strives
to provide nothing short of artistic excellence.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would wish to have more funding available so we can have even more quality performances for people to enjoy. Local businesses can sponsor only so much. Grants written to support the arts could not go to a more worthwhile organization than the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art.
