Nancy Wilhelms, the Executive Director of Anderson Ranch, sat down to explain what exactly happens when the busy weeks of summer come to a close.&nbsp;</p><p>More information on Anderson Ranch can be found <a href="http://www.andersonranch.org">here</a>.&nbsp;<br><br> Tue, 03 Sep 2013 20:47:28 +0000 Cornelia Carpenter 6946 at http://aspenpublicradio.org Audio Canvas - Fall at the Ranch Festival Showcase - August 27th, 2013 http://aspenpublicradio.org/post/festival-showcase-august-27th-2013 <p>In this rebroadcast program, hear interviews with pianist Joseph Kalichstein and luthier Joan Balter.&nbsp; Kalichstein discusses teaching, the value of competitions and Aspen’s allure.
