It was a huge pleasure to host Tony and Lesleigh Memmel last week. They performed an acoustic show on campus that one student said was one of the best he’d ever seen. Tony also generously spoke to two of my classes and shared about his life as a touring musician and talked about how to treat your music career like a business. They invited me to sing harmonies in one of my favorite songs, “One Week to Philadelphia”. Here’s the video of the performance:
In addition to Tony’s visit, we also took a trip to South Dakota State University where there were a number of simultaneous events happening. Cassie’s art was on display at the South Dakota Art Museum on their campus as part of the Governor’s 5th Biennial Art Exhibition. At another location on campus, Cassie presented at the South Dakota College Art Association conference on how to use social media for self-promotion as an artist!
And if that wasn’t enough, we also attended several events at the SoDak Animation Festival, which included a panel discussion featuring Kirsten Lepore. Check out one of her amazing, award-winning animations below:
