Is Burlington A Step Ahead?

Based on my singular observations, Burlington has four things already figured out as far as cultural planning goes.

1. They managed to build a new Performing Arts Centre downtown.

2. They have for many many years supported a music program for youth, and its showpiece "culminating task" the Burlington Teen Tour Band.

3. They built a music centre to house it all, and then they upgraded it.

4. They have a Sound of Music Festival.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Hamilton can learn from Burlington's history of supporting music!
