MERIDIAN: A Musical Legend
Fort Lauderdale, Florida Teen Session One (2010)
With Support from the ASCAP Foundation and the Broward County Cultural Division



Is there something else out there? The small community of Meridian is too scared to go up and too scared to go out, which leaves them with the only option; go down. Set in the west with a haunting folksy sound, this town is in a tug-o-war about whether or not to follow their hearts to progress or stand still and leave there lives the way they have always been. The latter does not seem like much of an option anymore as the mayor has a new initiative to set up dig sites around the town to look for old artifacts that could be useful in their society today. What will happen to the town if they actually find something of significance? Come and feel time stop. Meridian.
