With the semester coming to a close, it’s been a little hard to get in the holiday spirit with finals looming in the distance, but I had some help courtesy of Professor Amanda Little, who teaches one of the best classes I've taken at Vandy!
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?

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.
