The MSO didn't have much of a web presence, only the official website and a little used facebook page. Now there is a blog. I try to post interesting insights into who the people of the Muncie Symphony are and what we do. One of the most enjoyable times so far was going with the string quartet to an adult day care facility to play for a group of ladies. Music is truly a universal language that can cheer the heart and warm the soul.
The musicians also enjoy the experience. Most of them are international graduate students who have graduated in their home country from a conservatory; some students have a masters degrees. This cellist is from Korea. She has been in the United States about 7 months. Two violinists are Russian, another is Chinese. The students are very accomplished, and they play in the Muncie Symphony Orchestra.
I took Cotehele as well, and look at the smile she put the ladies faces!
Cotehele goes to work with me most days. The office is on the Ball State University campus on the Theater corridor. One professor brings her Yorkie, Loui, every day. Theater students bring their dogs and hang out in the Theater stage manager's office just across the hall from our office. The MSO executive director fosters for Lucky Lab Rescue, and we foster for GRRACE.
It's a doggie kind of place, and I love it.
I will post here when I can. Meanwhile come visit me at
I need friends!!
