Sometimes bold statements go unproven. Sometimes, they are proven for a little while and then fizzle out. Rarest is the bold statement proven over and over again. That’s where we seem to be with the Charleston Concert Association. This year, the group, under the leadership of John Dunnan, brought Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Bell, and this week, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet — all a big deal.

Now comes news of the 2009-2010 season. It’s no less spectacular than the current one:
