Answer:I've enjoyed the Utah Symphony for years and used to assist them with fundraising. Experiencing a live symphony is truly inspiring and adds a deeper sense of culture to everyday life.
Additional Comments: On the tax credit for historic preservation, I do support the concept but require greater detail on the tax credit to ensure it's not a subsidy for developers who simply keep the historic face of a building.
