This organization continues to provide wonderful performances for our incredibly rural area, including a world-class baroque festival, Missoula Children's Theater, and Montana Reperatory Theater visits. They do this all as volunteers, and every dime goes toward meeting performers' expenses to get here. Many of them donate much of their time to come here, just because they love the place and the Arts Council treats them so well. Thanks, Arts Council, for all the "culture" you bring to this backwoods community.
This organization is a great example of underfunded, overworked, yet a wonderful gift to the Sanders County Community as well as the larger Missoula, Kalispell, and northern Idaho area. They somehow manage to bring in nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians and theater groups to this tiny, "frontier" area, mostly due to the personal rapport the organization has developed with the performers. They bring Montana Repertory Theater productions. And they sponsoring an annual three-day Baroque Festival, offering world-class musicians in a tent at a hot springs near the Clark Fork River. Many performers delight in returning year after year, as they enjoy it so much, after their work in New York or Chicago, or Europe for instance. A dollar to this so far all-volunteer group is a great investment.
