The End of The Semester

by: Darian Moore

Going into this class I did not really know what to expect, but I needed to meet my requirements for school, so I took it. Being a freshman I had never been to the Krannert Center or any events like the ones I attended. I did not expect to be so interested in this class. My eyes were opened to ways of life I had never thought about. Seeing the performances opened my eyes to everything that goes on behind a performance.

Although I was already very interested in Music I never expected to be interested in music in these forms. I was introduced to so many things and different medias of art I never put much thought in to. This class helped me expand my knowledge and learn new things which is something I love and have a high appreaciation for.
