first_imgMusic majors at Saint Mary’s learned about the path one Belle followed from the College to a community music school after obtaining her degree in music in a lecture Monday titled, “Life After a Music Degree: Community Music Schools.” Kellirae Boann, executive director of the Music Village in South Bend, said the Music Village offers a unique opportunity for music majors to participate in the South Bend community after graduation.             Boann said her discernment path in the music industry included a 10-year run with local country rock band “Everyday People.” To improve her ability to make a living, she said went back to school, obtaining a degree at Indiana University-South Bend (IUSB). While taking classes at IUSB, she said she was invited to a presentation that discussed the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago. During this presentation, she said she realized she wanted to build something in the South Bend community modeled after this school. “I knew right away this was what I wanted to pursue after college,” she said. “Electricity was in the air during this presentation. I could feel through out my hair, it was crazy.” Boann said the Music Village began as a concept in October 2011, after surveys were sent out to the local community to see how many people would be interested in a teaching and performing institute. A 97 percent return rate among 300 people let Boann know this would work, she said. In 2012, a Board of Directors was established for the school, though Boann said it struggled with funding. “We started out with nothing, but we were undaunted and fearless,” Boann said. The Music Village opened in June 2012 with only 14 students, two instructors and one available guitar class. Although the length of the process required patience, Boann said they received funding. The school is now a non-profit organization registered with the State of Indiana, she said.   “I did not have to perform in order to have a career in music,” Boann said. Currently, The Music Village is located at a central point in downtown South Bend, and offers classes in the genres of Ballroom, Latin, Spanish, Swing and International Folk and instruments such as banjo, piano, violin, vocal coaching, guitar and bass. “We are about making music. I was not afraid to take a chance, [and] a year into this, … things are happening. Most importantly, people have music in their lives,” Boann said.

first_imgRAFAELA Silva’s gold medal has seemingly caught the interest of the Brazilian public with Rio 2016 ticket sales on the rise.Ticket sales for the Rio Olympics have been boosted by Rafaela Silva winning Brazil’s first gold medal on Monday and organisers are hopeful that more will be snapped up as the Games progress.Concerns have been raised in the opening week of the Games over swathes of empty seats at Olympic venues.Mario Andrada, executive communications director for Rio 2016, says around 10 000 tickets per day were being sold two weeks before the Games, but that 100 000 were sold on Monday – the same day Silva earned Brazil’s first gold by beating Sumiya Dorjsuren of Mongolia in the final of the women’s judo Under-57kg category.Following her win, Silva burst into tears in front of a raucous home crowd and her achievement has seemingly caught the interest of the wider public.“We sold 100 000 new tickets yesterday (Monday). We had 298 629 in all the Olympic arenas yesterday. We sold 82 per cent of the tickets available for yesterday,” Andrada told reporters.“We expect 344 000 people in all the Olympic venues today (Tuesday).“Two weeks before the Games, we were selling in an area of 10 000 tickets a day. We’re now selling more than 100 000 tickets every single day.“There is nothing better for ticket sales than when the country wins its first gold.“Brazilians, as have been widely said, are late buyers, but it’s impossible to resist when you have the Games at home.”last_img read more
