Spoleto USA as a Chattanooga festival model

It might surprise you and your readers that Charleston's Spoleto USA was the primary model, along with Salzburg, for Chattanooga's Riverbend Festival, starting with my visit there in 1980 and then Mayor Rose's visit with our Lyndhurst grant in 1981. Early Riverbends were like Spoleto but something went wrong in the mid-80s and it became...well, what it is. All this is chronicled in my 1990 Emory dissertation and forthcoming book, "Two Town Festivals: Signs of a Theater of Power," available soon on Amazon. Or you can find it on the web now as as public service.
HATCH sounds like a great beginning and hope it goes well and has the leadership of an experienced artistic director.
