ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

(gentle music)

- It's my rock, it's what makes me tick

and I've loved it from a young age

and I can't imagine life without it.

(vocalizing)

It's what really enables us to kind communicate.

The performing arts, the classical arts,

all of it, it's what makes us human.

- It's an exciting time for the arts.

So many people are reached that couldn't have been before.

- [Renee] Without PBS, I don't know if I'd be a singer,

I don't know if I would have had that spark.

- [Joshua] Public broadcasting is something I grew up with,

so, you know, my parents always had it on.

I don't think there's a better bang for your buck

than putting it into the arts.

I think we need the arts more than ever.
