WGXC's Hudson Talbott was asking entrants questions that ranged from their political views, opinions about the value of the arts, to what they were wearing. The ball is the arts council's biggest fundraiser, a dress-up event that's an annual event of local arts patrons. Talbott talked with Robert Manno and Magdalena Golczewski who were honored with this year's "Distinguished Service Award" for their work running the Windham Chamber Music Festival. He also spoke with David Slutzky, from Hunter Mountain and the President of the arts council; local artists Iris Kaplan and Sheila Troutman; and New York Assemblyman Pete Lopez. WGXC's Tom Roe also interviewed Lex Grey, who performed at the ball and is helping to organize the Rip Van Winkle Wine Festival May 7 in Catskill.
