Synergy Sustained

Dan Smith's avatar Dan Smith

Music adds an immeasurable richness to our lives; creating and performing music doubles those riches. There is a non-profit organization in South Haven, Michigan, that is dedicated to providing artists support and opportunities: Foundry Hall. One of their many ventures is the arrangement for a monthly open mic at Black River Tavern. As you would expect, there you will find all sorts of enthusiastic, amateur (mostly) musicians creating an amazing variety of song. What might surprise you is the interconnections that develop over time, as artists influence each other's musical interests, contribute to each other's skills, and sustain each other's creations. It's a musical community in which the bonds of friendship take flight in spheres like waves of sound.
