MASSV was well-organized

We would like to publicly congratulate the organizers, participants, musicians and the city of Ketchum for the wonderful MASSV Music and Arts Showcase Sun Valley, which we attended with the intention of shooting a documentary-style event video as a gift to all concerned.

From the setup to the last act on Main Street, we found the experience to be joyous, creative and well-ordered, with great care given to the safety and welfare of all but without a feeling of overbearing rules of conduct that can zap the freedom of expression and self-reliance that is the important underlying spiritual purpose of such an event. When you give human beings of all ages the freedom to participate actively in their own experience and express themselves fully within a constructive framework based on civilized order, miracles can happen, and we saw it work at MASSV. The music was fantastic, the food delicious, the art inspiring and the ambiance relaxed, fun, happy and peaceful.
