Hi! This is Luke Miksanek, and it seems that I have the honor of setting a precedent for the weekend reflection blog posts that will appear here every Sunday for the entire 2012-13 school year.
Of all the event listings that John painstakingly chronicled last week, I went to one of them: the screening of Carmen (1915) hosted at the Blair School of Music by professors Joy H. Calico and Paul Young. This event was very entertaining and informative; Vandy students and the general public are so fortunate to have access to such enriching programs at no charge.
In case this Wednesday's blog poster drops the ball, I would like to offer my shameless plug for this season's first Vanderbilt Orchestra and Vanderbilt Wind Symphony joint concert, at 8pm on September 14th at Blair. The Orchestra will be playing the greatest work ever composed for symphony orchestra - Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade - and none other than yours truly will be featured at the back of the second violin section. Mark your calenders!
