Artist Series: required doses of culture.
Plays (Shakespeare), opera, various other performers.
There were like 6 a year or something. 3 a semester.
One year, close to Christmas, we were treated to the Mantovani Orchestra.
The director invited us to sing along with one of the songs, and told us: "Now you can say I sang with the Mantovani Orchestra."
I haven't had nearly as many opportunities to say that as I originally thought I would.
But I did.
I sang with the Mantovani Orchestra.
Not everyone can say that.
