The 'Salute to Neill' tribute to Fontana founder Neill Sanders is an annual tradition for the Fontana Summer Festival.

This year, Fontana director David Baldwin invited a former director, pianist Paul Nitsch, to appear on the program.

The past and present directors discuss the history of Fontana with Cara Lieurance. They also discuss the bright futures of the five young musicians who complete the program: horn player Adedeji Ogunfolu and the Omer Quartet.
