The Last of the Blue Devils

We will watch a movie together today

Let's begin by learning something we didn't know we didn't know.

① info world

We will start each session with one of us standing before the assembled group and introducing us to an "information world" that they are familiar with, but one that may well be new to the rest of us.

This will be voluntary: there will be no one necessarily assigned to do this weekly, though we hope everyone would want to share of themselves by taking advantage of the opportunity.

② watch together in class

The Last of the Blue Devils

This short historical video explains the name and the place of the Blue Devils. The movie we will watch looks back on them and their Kansas City experience.
Note the importance the speaker puts on their ability to read and understand musical notation.

We will watch it all, together, in it's entirety.

④ ponder

You will see the movie. You might want to see what has been said about it.

But we won't have a student present this to the class. It will be something we might want to read in advance of the session.
