And off we go…

February 4, 2016

Yesterday was our first recital hour performance of the year and what a recital it was.  I was mesmerized by the quality and variety of these performances. First-years to seniors, singers to harpists, wistful to willful–this recital brought a diversity of performers and performances to our stage– all of them, stellar. And just in time, too.

DePauw has a winter term– a time for great exploration (our chamber singers toured France, some students followed the footsteps of Messiaen) — that takes our students away from campus and around the world. This is truly a good thing. But back home, it makes for a quiet music school–something that is very hard to like.

So yesterday, when the stage erupted in music, I knew we were back. And I was glad.  This beautiful building is only truly beautiful when it is filled with the sound of music– at all stages. To a musical school dean, the sound from the practice room is as wonderful as the sound from the stage. Welcome back students. We missed you.
