OOTB performs at New Haven’s Neighborhood Music School!
This past Sunday afternoon, we performed at Neighborhood Music School (NMS) in New Haven. With over 3,000 students from the ages of 6 months to 80+ years, NMS is one of the ten largest community arts schools in the country.
Sunday was the centennial of NMS, marking one hundred years of commitment to accessible, high-quality instruction in music and dance. Out of the Blue was invited to sing at “100 at 100”, NMS’ celebration of the past hundred years. For this event, one hundred performers, ranging from students to staff to invited guests, gathered in NMS to share their dance and their art and their song with the community.
It was a pleasure to be a part of this event, to see the passion and inspiration that exists beyond Yale’s walls. New Haven has a thriving community of artists and musicians, brought together at NMS from over 80 cities and towns across Connecticut. To be united with this vast community of music lovers, and to share our own love of music with them, was a truly wonderful experience. We can’t wait to continue sharing in the future.
3 New, Great Places to Grab a Bite During Camp Yale.
With 12 residential dining halls, you’d think it would be impossible to become restless with the range of eating options available at Yale. Trust me, after you’ve had your fourth “tofu apple crisps,” you’ll be looking to try something a little different. Here’re a few great places that recently opened on campus.
1. Box 63 American Bar & Grill (www.box63.com)
Box 63 opened earlier this summer right on the corner of Elm and Park, and the reports have been very favorable. We sent Tom in to scout it out, and this was his verdict on the chilli:
It’s also worth mentioning Box 63’s ingenious Double Happy Hour system: Round One is from 4 to 7 pm, and Round Two goes from 10 to 11:30 pm (Round Two also features the evocatively named “Trash Omelet”). Need we say more?
