After the fun and excitement that was Commodore Quake, I was a little bummed out thinking that my music-related activities would be over for a while, but BOY was I wrong! In the last month alone I’ve been to three shows, gotten two backstage passes, interviewed four different artists, and have had tons of stuff...

Usually at the end of sophomore year, when we have to choose our majors, we hit a wall. We figuratively hit it really hard. We come to that point where we ask ourselves the academic existentialist question, "Why am I in school?" For me, specifically, it was the question, "What I am doing.... as a musician?"
This event, for two hours on Friday night, marks the first night of the Blair Salon Series, a program successfully piloted last year. Around 30 people gathered at Dean Wcislo's house––performers, professors, and students from every college––for an evening of chamber music. The music was centered on fairy tales, partly as foreshadowing for the upcoming production of "Into the Woods" by Vanderbilt Opera, and partly as celebration of quirky, wonderful feats of imagination.

So, last year when I found out I could apply to be in the Athenian Honor Society and thereby help plan the event, I was psyched!
When you find a cause that you really love, you end up bringing into conversations a lot. That's kind of how I feel about human trafficking. It's a huge and heavy need around the world, and I have been SO ecstatic about getting involved with International Justice Mission (IJM) to help make my mark on this injustice.

I did not know much about the show before hand, but it was fantastic...

After months of meetings/deliberation/preparations, this Thursday Commodore Quake was finally here!!!! This year’s Quake was my first as a member of VPB’s Music Group, so I got to experience all the fun from a much better view than before: The artists we had this year were Wale and Kendrick Lamar, two of the biggest names...
