My Final Thoughts

A reflection on having spent a semester engaging in the arts and creativity

By: Aditya Kashyap

Throughout the semester, I have had the unique opportunity to be a part of some once-in-a-lifetime performances. As much as I love the arts, I still struggle to make time to see performances even though I participate in creative work. This class allowed me to try new things and step out of my comfort zone, and for that I am very thankful. Here are links to my experiences in this class and my thoughts on each of them.

Jupiter String Quartet

Tai Ji and Western Classical: A Clashing of Worlds

UI Steel Band Setup

Day of the Drum: UI Steel Band

Overall, I greatly enjoyed this class. While I didn’t love every performance that I saw, I was glad that I was able to go out of my comfort zone and explore new aspects of art and creativity. I hope to take a class and have experiences like this throughout the rest of my life.
