Our World Tuesday: ECU Band Camp Makes the Grade
Adella spent last week at band camp at East Carolina University. She was the only Connecticut student among the North Carolinians, but she felt welcomed and at-home. She took on some challenging music with her band, and the did a fabulous job. It was utterly amazing. It's easy to see why the ECU Music Department is so strong.
Before the show, we walked around Greenville, and Adella had a little dance with the billboard. Not everybody can do ballet with a smoothie in hand.
Back on campus, we took in the art that adorns every corner of the very beautiful campus. I didn't look to see what this work was called, but itmade me think of Louis LeBrocquy's "Don Quixote."
Dell liked this one. It madeus think of 3-D graffiti.
I was out of storage on my phone, so I didn't get a recording of the works, but I will soon have the CD, and I will share. Given the chance, kids can do some amazing stuff with music. Here's to ECU for what the school did for my kid, and here's to my kid for giving it a try.
