After much discussion and debate among staff members, archives, studios, and patrons, we have finally come to a couple of conclusions regarding Capitolfest 18. One is that we cannot do it as planned this year, which would have been a tribute to the Bennett sisters. Another, however, is that we CAN do Capitolfest, with the assumption that things will continue to improve during the next 2 1/2 months.ed to the public and a date for the event is determined.
