""carpe diem" takes on a whole new meaning..."

““. When the music comes to town the words "carpe diem" takes on a whole new meaning. Its not just a concert, it is a celebration of a way of living that respects the best in all of us and rejects the bitterness life can bring.” ” - Wellsville Daily Reporter
