It was a beautiful, warm, and very windy Sunday afternoon at Bayside Pavilion and Barker’s Island in Superior when the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra came to play. Wind blew sheet music, some music stands blew over, and the orchestra continued playing. Gorgeous music filled the air.

While the orchestra played and children played, patrons overlooked the bay and saw boats, paddle boats, and parasails — while the winds continued to gust. For more than an hour, music filled the air and our hearts.

DSSO earned thanks for the beauty it created.

Readers' View and Local Views

Letters are limited to 300 words, must be the original work of the author and must be exclusive to the News Tribune. Letters are edited for style, space, accuracy and civility.

Letter writers are limited to one published submission every 30 days.

With rare exceptions, the News Tribune does not publish poetry; letters that are anonymous, libelous or attack other writers; consumer-complaint letters; thank-you letters; or letters generated by political or special-interest campaigns.

We will consider exclusive Local View columns of 600 words or fewer. Authors should possess unique insights, and their commentaries should demonstrate greater knowledge of their subject than letters.
