This is yet another ode to Nashville. I really don't think there are many college towns that allow for as many spontaneous concert adventures as I have had over my 3 years so far at Vandy. Although the week before Thanksgiving was a chaotic blur of group project meetings and nervous presentations (the blessing and curse of being an H.O.D. major), I somehow managed to fit in 2 spectacularly Nashville-y concerts on Thursday and Sunday night.
I’ve recently been inspired by Carrie Underwood’s live TV performance in the Sound of Music, so I now proudly, unabashedly present my own recreation of one of my favorite songs from this magical musical, all about picking my schedule. Also, I address how I settled on my schedule for my first two semesters at Vandy. Happy Holidays. Happy Finals-Procrastinating. Happy Reading.
As part of our summer/senior year bucket list, Victoria and I really wanted to go to the Full Moon Pickin' Party--a monthly fundraising event throughout the summer and fall each year that raises money for the Warner Parks in Nashville.
Perhaps even more daunting than the prospect of imminent papers and finals was The Melodores‘ annual winter concert. The couple of weeks leading up to (even Thanksgiving break, to an extent) had been rather taxing, to be honest, and juggling rehearsals and classes was becoming increasingly difficult.

This last week of school is going to be crazy with all of the exams that are cropping up, but it will also be a performance-seeker's dream come true! All the groups on campus are pushed into performing during these few days, packing our last week of classes with excellent displays of how talented Vanderbilt students can be...
Remember how much I was looking forward to Thanksgiving Break in my last post? Not to say that it's all completely over, but I've taken the past couple of days to wear my polar bear pajama pants and relax.
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.
