Two photogenic new musicians have come to our campus this month. Sandy Short (of the Marketing Office) sponsored a meet-and-greet for the two young women on September 12. In the pictures, wearing a black top is Melissa, who plays the clarinet. Ria, who plays piano, is in a white top. Their first concert will be on September 24th!

On Saturday afternoon a group of residents filled the Ivy Lounge for an up-close look into the artistic process. One of Collington’s new artists in residence from the University of Maryland School of Music, clarinetist Melissa Morales, was joined by flutist Ceylon Mitchell in an open rehearsal. They perform together in the Potomac Winds, a chamber music collective based in the Washington DC area.
Melissa and Ceylon were working on perfecting a series of pieces by Glenn Gould. Although Mr. Gould was known primarily as a pianist, he composed a series of works for flute and clarinet. While not yet ready for a professional performance, Melissa expressed a desire to engage with residents as soon as possible. She certainly met that goal, having been on campus for only one week!
