Teaching the `Grace Notes of Life'
Thank you for the editorial "Supporting `Grace Notes'," June 9. My brother, sister, and I grew up in Los Angeles in the 1960s. Part of our public school education was an introduction to music. At age nine, I was introduced to opera at the Shrine Auditorium, and my memory recalls to this day the production of Mozart's "The Magic Flute." That one experience set me on the path of supporting classical music.
In my free time, I find ways to introduce young people to the beauty of classical music. We must strive to continue young people's education in the music of the masters. Ed Specht, Carlsbad, Calif.
