NRO Dillon concert was a highlight

Every town in Summit County puts its best foot forward on the Fourth of July.Visitors and residents are treated to wholesome, family activities that depict exactly what the Fourth of July should be. However, one of the most outstanding events of the day did not appear to be featured or mentioned in the follow-up coverage in the Summit Daily News. Every person at the National Repertory Orchestra (NRO) free concert at the Lake Dillon Amphitheatre was overwhelmed with the talent and spirit of the young musicians along with their exuberant conductor, Carl Topilow. Patriotic and traditional tunes were presented along with a moving tribute to all veterans and their families who were recognized as audience participants. Even a guest conductor who offered a sizable amount of money via a spontaneous on-the-spot auction entertained the crowd with a truly gifted flair. It was the highlight of the day for me and probably thousands of other Summit County Fourth of July revelers. It’s an event that should definitely be repeated and, hopefully, recognized in the years to come. Thank you NRO maestro Topilow and all of your fine, young, gifted musicians. You are truly one of Summit County’s finest assets!Jane DewaneSilverthorne
