To Lawrence Golan:

Having just heard you conduct the Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra in works by Grieg and Adams, I am once again deeply impressed and full of admiration for your continuing contributions to the musical life of Maine, and especially for all the young people you've inspired. I was quite surprised, dazzled, and finally enchanted by your program tonight, especially the Adams piece. And to balance your program with Peer Gynt was a beautiful stroke. Your comments about the Adams certainly helped the audience enjoy it more: this is yet another aspect of your breadth of impact as a conductor.

With sincerest admiration and respectful appreciation,

Joe Mauro, Journalist
