Reader wants to share music in his heart

Dear Springfield and Washington County,

When was the last time you were a part of something very special?

When was the last time your heart strings were played upon so completely that you rediscovered your own personal music score? I speak not about how you sing in the shower; I speak of the music in your heart.

Have you lost your inner person song? Have you stopped singing in your heart?

When was the last time that the music stream in your own heart was drawn into the stream of a music encounter so powerful that it created a new river that only music can produce?

When was the last time you left  a performance wishing to go right back and see it again? What was the feeling? It was the music in your heart calling to you.

This year, for just a few more weeks, you have a chance to be a part of something very special that I promise you will pull at your heart strings.

The completely updated production of, “Stephen Foster-The Musical’’ and the new music and magic of “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” at My Old Kentucky Home State Park are the best productions ever produced in Kentucky.

I have seen productions in New York, London, Manchester, Chicago, and Cincinnati, but I have never seen such a thunderous, explosive audience response like I saw at the grand opening of “Joseph” in Bardstown. People were in no rush to leave the theater, wishing to hear just one more song, one more time. Would you like to experience that?

The last note of this summer will stop Aug. 14. The most uplifting and entertaining evening of the summer is as close as a phone call to (502) 348-5971 or toll free to (800) 626-1563.

Want to impress your mother-in-law? Call the number.Want a heart warming evening with a date? Call the number.

But more importantly, how about you or someone you know who has lost the music in their heart? Find it anew by calling the number and make a date with yourself or someone you love.

We have so much to be proud of in Kentucky. Yes, Stephen Foster is Kentucky’s official outdoor musical, and perhaps you have seen it before, but you have never seen it like now.

Someone wrote, “The music in my heart I bore, long after it was here no more.” That will happen to you. I guarantee it. You will find yourself singing in the shower once again.

If anything I have written here is untrue, and if after attending one of the Kentucky Home State Park productions your heart strings were not touched in an amazing way to rediscover the wonderful, personal music of who you are inside, then write me at cmalzdmalz@aol.com and tell me I am wrong.

But, until then, listen to your heart and call the number. It is not too late, but it will be.

Very Sincerely,

Carl Malz


Springfield and Bardstown
