This is the final blog post from the Ft. Hayes high school students who were beneficiaries of Music Loves Ohio grants to attend Berklee’s 5 Week Performance Camp. Special thank you to Jeff McCargish for his dedication and time in raising additional funds to assist these very talented and gracious musicians!
This is the last week of city music and I’m excited for all of the shows that are coming up this week. It’s also a little hard because it’ll be time for me to depart from all of the wonderful people I’ve met. Over the weekend, I ran into Mr. Van Bibber from Fort Hayes. I was very shocked to see him as well as my other classmates. I have tons of solos that I have to sing and I’m a little nervous. I have a few rehearsals to make sure we’re all prepared. I hope that I get this opportunity again to be apart of City Music. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences of my life. – Cara Carey
This last week at five week has been an absolute whirlwind. With rehearsals and performances in abundance. I was particular proud of my jazz ensemble’s performance that we had. We sounded really good and everybody in the audience afterward said the same thing. It felt really good to have worked so hard and then for it to all go so well and pay off at the end. I had a wonderful time at the Berklee Five Week camp. I was able to meet some amazing musicians as well learn many new and interesting things. The Five Week camped really helped to get me more energized than I already was to start school in the fall. – Xavier Rivers
