The Woodwinds- Waiting for Planes to Return Home (2 views)

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”.

Check out the bass clarinet! WOW.

  1. I bet it was better than the Musak that usually plays!! Thanks for sharing, hope you had a wonderful time in Connecticut.

  2. 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

  3. 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! 🙂

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
