“The P&W grant was pivotal in providing a floor of support that made my journey up to Mt. Shasta from the San Francisco Bay Area economically viable. As a result, my performances established me as a ‘name’ presence in the Shasta region, and I can be confident about drawing substantial attendance for workshops and performances there in the future. Thanks, P&W!”
