The winter weather is upon us, and we are fearful for our instruments. Poor Dmitri, his string height keeps getting lower and lower because of this bipolar weather we've been having. Did y'all see the flurries on Monday?
Last Sunday night, I spent a couple of hours at a bar in downtown Nashville, chatting with musicians and making full use of my eardrums. Later I found myself practically stranded across town from campus. But this proved to be a memorable adventure, all in the name of taking advantage of being in Nashville.
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...

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.
When I first came to Vanderbilt, family weekend was in September. Since I had never been away from my mom for more than three weeks, that was perfect! My favorite part of the weekend was the Athenian Sing, when I got to see the great performing arts groups on campus compete to raise money for different charities. After that night, I wanted to be involved in the Athenian Sing however I could. 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.
