OrchKids – These Young Musicians Blew My Mind

Have you ever  just happened to wander in on  something  so beautiful you found yourself stuck in a trance as you tried to take it all in? That’s what happened to Me this summer at Artscape as I wandered around  tent to tent, building to building soaking in all the  creativity  that flowed. I somehow ended up in one of the Mica ( an arts colleges) buildings and  saw a lot of people milling about on a lower level.

My friend and  I followed the flow of people and  walked into a  concert that was already in progress. The sight shocked Me, the  music  coming from the  stage was so sharp, and  beautiful but  I was not ready for the musicians, they were all children. The oldest looked about 14 maybe. These children were  playing  music with the talent of well trained  adults who had studied the  craft for years.

OrchKids is a year-round, during and after school, music program designed to create social change and nurture promising futures for youth in Baltimore City neighborhoods. Under Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director, Marin Alsop’s artistic leadership and direction, OrchKids is the cornerstone of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s efforts to expand their relevance within the broad and diverse Baltimore community.

This group of talented youth have even been recognized by the First Lady, Michelle Obama who presented them with an award for excellence on Thanksgiving 2013. I  was  so lucky to happen upon them  performing and was quick to whip out My camera. I captured four  videos and uploaded them to youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe_NSxP-NWTFCoSQDLyphvg

I Attended The Hottest Open Mic Last Week

Burnin Mic Open Mic

I’m the first to say you can find talent in all places but  I was  shocked to find it flowing  from My own  womb. I  entered My son into this  poetry writing/spoken word program for the  summer with the  Maya Baraka Institute directed and ran by various National poetry  slam winners and  contestants. The  program is  for youths age 13-20 and  focuses on spoken word and the creative arts with an afro-centric flair.

We were invited to their  first  performance last week which was in the  format of an open mic which was also open to the public sponsored by the Maya Baraka program along with Dew More Baltimore.  The open mic was hosted by the  youths of the program and  many of them blessed us with their talents from singing, to poetry and rapping. I  recorded  quite a few of the performances but no where near all of them nor did I capture what I think were some of the best performances.

Hopefully you will enjoy  a peek into  what you missed. These talented teens and young adults blew Me away.

I have  a few more  videos  from the event and will be continuing to  upload them to youtube at http://www.tinyurl.com/sapphiresyoutube.com

Have You Seen The Young Dance Phenom Heaven? She’s Heavenly

I will be the first to admit I’m not a  fan of watching  videos  online and I  don’t watch  talk shows. I miss out on a lot of what’s currently popular. That’s part of of why I started this site, I know so many like Me  who are just as clueless. Well until last week I’d never heard of 4 year old Heaven King but  since the first time I saw her she has been blowing up all over My social networking pages.
