Confratute at UCONN completed and we went to catch our plane to Cleveland, in route to Pittsburgh. At the Bradley Airport, Hartford CT, a circle of students (who had just completed ARIA International Summer Academy at Mt. Holyoke college) caught my ear, first! Then my eye. Clearly skilled! I asked if I could photograph them for the blog even though our plane was starting to board. A lovely unexpected performance. Sitting in airports can be tedious but not today. Thinking about how live music enhances emotion. Touches us. Turns out I had just missed their rendition of Star Wars. Bummer. They were all headed different directions. Teachers would check the comment box, “uses time wisely”.
I bet it was better than the Musak that usually plays!! Thanks for sharing, hope you had a wonderful time in Connecticut.
I lost clip-on sunglasses at the Hartford Airport about 5 years ago. Did you see them?? Hope to see you sometime this summer. Leah
that’s awesome that they were playing in the airport!
What a great post! Liked the Mt Holyoke connection … a beautiful campus, esp. in the Summer. I hope they played outside there!!
Please explain “confratute” – or did I miss it? Not a word that I am drawn to…… to use in a poem…… a limerick, maybe! 🙂
See there are still talented hardworking young people in this world.
