To the Editor:
Re: A little Mozart? Keizertimes editorial, August 6:
Yes yes yes! You are so right! The idea that we have to appeal only to the young is poor marketing. We are very diverse in age, cultural background and musical tastes. We need our city-sponsored events to reflect this. Rock and roll is great (well, to a point) but there are other kinds of music. Luckily, musicians and musical groups of all types— jazz, classical, big band, standards, etc.—are eager for a place to perform.
And theater in the park (Shakespeare or other) is a great idea as well. Dance performances, karate demonstrations (we have several martial arts studios whose students would love a chance to show off), gymnastics exhibitions …gosh, the possibilities are limitless.
