"Our ensemble hiked your beautiful canyon prior to my plane's departure, and I reflected on my warm reception at Yakima's Capitol Theatre. My appreciation for the women of Town Hall reminded me of this popular quote, 'Anytime there's a man who says something can't be done, don't interrupt the women already doing it.'
