It’s hard to believe another Sounds of Music Academy is done and over with. The two days seemed to fly by! But what a fantastic two days it was! We have heard nothing but compliments about the event.
This Academy brought quite a few “firsts” with it. It marked the first time Chuck Wright, Lowrey’s newest artist, came to Columbia! His concerts were toe-tapping fun, and his workshops were relevant, educational and just a general delight to sit in on!
This was also the first time that the instrument that has been covered up in the studio was unveiled. Lowrey’s Joanie Manero and Brad Bryan were on hand to introduce us to the newest addition to the virtual orchestra line, the Lowrey EZ-4. This instrument itself was a first- it’s the first split-level instrument to have three keyboards! Plus it’s the first split-level to lack pedals (a money saver for those who don’t play them anyway!). It was received with much excitement and several people already have the itch to adopt one!
The final “first” was the announcement to the general public of Sounds of Music’s big news… but that’s for a future post. (hee-hee)
Thank you to all of the attendees who made this year’s Sounds of Music Academy a success. The year’s not over yet- there’s many more “firsts” to come!
