Four Webster University students and I traveled to Jefferson City today for Missouri Citizens for the Arts Day at the State Capitol.

I was joined by

  • Nathan Coleman, senior piano performance major
  • Brittany Graham, graduate vocal performance major
  • Atum Jones, senior guitar performance major
  • Madeline Purches, senior musical theatre major.

At the invitation of MCA leadership, we sang a noontime concert in the Capitol rotunda, then had lunch at a nearby restaurant.

But first, I showed them the Thomas Hart Benton murals in the Capitol:


In the House Lounge with the Bentons. L-R: Purches, Coleman, Jones, Graham.
