Since announcing Festival 21 a couple of weeks ago it has been so much fun for me to walk around New Haven, show up at events, or grab a cup of coffee, and hear the reactions to everything we have coming to town. Everyone has their favorites, whether it be the world premieres or the return of some familiar names. It is so nice to feel the enthusiasm from all.
One thing that has been a lot of fun has been when people hear or see the artists joining us at the Festival on the radio, television, or Internet and let us know about it. Last week when George Clinton performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert my inbox lit up. Check out his appearance below and be sure to mark your calendar for June 11 so you can see George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic on the First Niagara Stage. And when you see or hear a Festival artist let us know by tagging #Festival21 #YoureHere on your social networks.
