I am glad you articulated this. I have had similar thoughts rolling around in my head, especially around the time of the Bio Lab. While I wasn't terribly against the Bio Lab, I also wasn't for it. I thought that Athens could do better and that Athens actually needed to manage its identity better than settle for the Bio Lab. Athens needed to invest in being a great, artistic place to live.

My hope is that one day college kids who grew up in Athens will find one another in their various college-related travels around the country and globe and be thrilled to meet one another because they are meeting someone who shared a very distinctive cultural environment growing up that no one else except Athenians share.

The work of AthFest's school music program is one of those things that I think will set this town apart for future generations of Athenians.
