"We made the commitment that even with an expected deficit, we want to give this gift to the city. It's so necessary for the community to come back together" - Ilan Vasconcelos
In this episode we feature the voice of the Director of Development of Stern Grove Festival Ilana Vasconcelos. With the State of California officially reopening on June 15th of 2021 and performing arts organizations working their way through all of the ever changing health and safety protocols we wanted to feature one of the oldest outdoor music festivals in the City of San Francisco to hear how they’re working together with artists, staff and the local government, to bring the community back together through music.
