I'm so happy to cover arts & entertainment reporting in Crossroads.
Last week,I covered the Bach Festival and it was nothing less than amazing. I was able to attend several of the afternoon concerts. Let me just say, it was a rare treat. The musicians were truly gifted.
However, I was most surprised with the children. They were extremely knowledgeable about the classical composers. I met a 10 year old girl, named Emery the first day of the concert series. She used the festival as a teaching tool for her mother Teri.
I met another young lady named Hatti. She emotionally connected to the Pulcinella Originals performance.
"It made me smile. It made me cry. I loved it," she said.
I was blown away because she appreciates Classical music at such a young age. Admittedly, I didn't learn how to appreciate this form of art well into my adult years.
I met a young lady named Kayla who plays the bass. The instrument was larger than her. But she didn't let that intimidate her, in fact, she loved the challenge. She loved the bass so much, she taught others how to play during the downtown rhythms.
The children I've had the pleasure of meeting are wise beyond their years.
I'm so excited to learn from Victoria's musicians in the making.
