Arts Folks Attend White House Fete

slide_1088_17418_largeI usually don’t like to do two items on the same subject (i.e. Obama) in a given day, but I had to make note of this fact: at the concert the First Couple gave at the White House last night to honor Stevie Wonder (pictured), the following people were among those in attendance — students from the Berklee School of Music, Jeffrey Kimpton from Interlochen in Michigan, the president of Juilliard, the head of the Grammy’s foundation, a number of creative arts and music conservatory teachers and students, and folks from music programs in Washington, DC public schools. It may be a struggle to pry federal monies from the Administration for the arts, but this White House clearly wants to support them in other ways.
