Passion and the music in your head


November 06, 2017

I spend a lot of time talking with people who are extremely dedicated to their art, whether that art be dance, theater, painting, sculpting, pottery…whatever. They all have one thing in common: passion. They all have a clear passion for the art they have come to love, and they want to share that with others.

As I’ve talked to so many of these folks, I’ve learned that it’s not just about performing or exhibiting their work, although so many of them do love to do so. It’s more about simply sharing the experience or the feeling it brings. It goes way beyond words.

We had the privilege of talking with some very dedicated young ladies for this issue, and think you will enjoy reading about their love for dance and be amazed at what they bring to the stage. We also talked with Mathyn Miller, a young woman who has given so much to the local dance community and continues to not only provide some great performances but to equip up-and-coming dancers for their moment in the spotlight.

We were honored to chat with the director for An Octoroon, a production at Georgia Southern that will likely spark some lively conversation. We hope it does. Look inside for what the director had to say about the play, the actors, and the subject matter.

We also enjoyed speaking with the stars of a great production centered around the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, who understood the passion artists have. “What matters most is the music you hear in your head,” she said.

Indeed.

Enjoy this issue!
