Salt Lake City is certainly lucky to have such an educated musician like Mr. Lyon return to Salt Lake to set this community straight on what is correct and what is not correct. However, I would like to put my perspective out there as to what a standing ovation means to me.

I am so appreciative of musicians who take years and years to perfect their artistry, the university students who spend a whole semester honing their musical skills with an excellent presentation or the hours and hours my little granddaughter who is in kindergarten spends getting ready for her first class program. I will more than likely stand in appreciation every time. If that is dumbing down, so be it.
