Letter: Grand Forks arts scene is a powerful tool for good

It’s so crucial that we get out, enjoy and support the arts. As the saying goes, the arts are a powerful force for good.

We are part of The Trust Project.

It was many years ago I went with a few friends to the Burtness Theater at UND. The play was “Sylvia” and was in the Lab Theater, a small, intimate place. The play and the actors were great! That was the beginning for me and others to embrace the arts scene in Grand Forks.

Since then I’ve been to many plays at the Burtness, Firehall and the Empire. There’s also been so much good music at UND and the Empire I’ve enjoyed.

Also the North Dakota Museum of Art has concerts on occasion on Sundays. They are also great. The Grand Forks Symphony is always a thrill at Masonic Center. I prefer the smaller venues and all of the above are superb.

Thank you to all the great actors/performers – wow! The musicians – wow! And thanks to all of you arts people that make it all possible. Here’s a big hug for you all!

It’s so crucial that we get out, enjoy and support the arts. As the saying goes, the arts are a powerful force for good. Arts/music lifts the soul, makes the heart smile and bridges all gaps between humans. It is truly the universal language.
