And this is a great point!
Ah well, you've read this far right? A little bit more narcissism isn't going to hurt anyone at this point. So here goes:
I'm Allison Redmon!
|Me! Teaching my Digital Music class! It was Friday... don't judge the jeans.|
Hi! I'm Andrew Redmon!
|Me taking a tabla drum lesson in Singapore with a guy who has been studying tabla since before I was born...|
My interest in early music was really sparked in grad school by Dr. Hunter Hensley at Eastern Kentucky University. Through learning about and performing that music, I fell in love with the sounds of those musical eras (Ah... sackbuts!). This grant gives Allison and me the opportunity to experience this music in (we feel) the very best way possible - through live performances by the best groups around. I'm very much aware that, while I am gushing about how beautiful some 17th century mass is, my poor, captive middle schoolers are thinking "Dude...is it time to go to lunch yet??", as I was most definitely thinking at that time of my life. Hopefully a few of you are reading this - yes, I know what you think :-) Hopefully though, you and everyone else will learn a little something from this experience of ours...at the very least what the Super Mario theme sounds like on a 17th century Baroque harpsichord.
So please (please, please) follow us and enjoy this experience with us! If nothing else, tune in to see if we accidentally end up in Norway trying to take the Tube 15 times a day. Bookmark us... now.
Next post = how to pack a month's worth of stuff into a carry on bag. Can it be done? Who even knows??
