One Journey Ends, Another Begins

It’s been three short weeks since we left Uganda, and that has left time for reflection, a little bit of respite, but mostly laundry and re-packing. Yesterday afternoon, I arrived in Johannesburg, South Africa to begin a new collaboration with the International Partnership for Choral Music Education. The group has been working here in South Africa for some time now, and it is gathering steam for various projects country-wide in Cape Town, George, Johannesburg, and Pretoria. Red Ugandan earth still on my boots, today I’ll head with them to Pretoria.

Up to now, I have only really known Alicia Walker, a fellow FSU graduate who teaches at the University of South Carolina School of Music. At a lovely dinner last night, Alicia introduced me to the colleagues with whom she began this project several years ago. I’ll hit the ground running today with some initial documentation of the networking and capacity building activities that this group has been doing here for over a week already. More to come soon!
