Dear Mrs. Caldwell, My husband and I recently attended the Music in the Mountains presentation of Opera Modesto’s “Carmen in Concert.” Before the opera began and in the printed program attention was drawn to your continuing and generous sponsorship.
As audience members we want to thank you and the event center for assuring classical music will thrive in Nevada County.
In appreciation,

Jo Ann and George
