Viva la Vida

Thursday's Chapel ended with our String Ensemble playing their version of Cold Play's hit "Viva la Vida". I noted a couple remarkable things about this performance: the group played it flawlessly without their teacher, Jason Bergman, conducting in front (he stood behind them and let them learn how to stay together by watching each other), and they represented four countries among their 10 members: two of them were exchange students from Freiburg, Germany, who had joined the group for the first four weeks of the year. The performance was our final tribute to our guests from Freiburg, and it capped off a week of guests as two alumnae spoke in Chapel, sharing their experiences both at the Academy and afterwards. The overall message of the week was powerful: one of aspiration, encouragement, and community.
