May 19.22: Getting To Know You

When you wake up on Eager Street, it feels like the city is saying Good morning! Let’s get this adventure started! It’s the first day of The Sound We See: Baltimore and we’re off to the Baltimore School for the Arts to meet the crew. Housed in the former Alcazar Ballroom and Hotel opened in 1924 for the Knights of Columbus and the neighbouring 1850 Graham House, the BSA is renowned performing arts high school focusing on dance, music, acting, stage design and production, visual arts and (our personal favorite) film & visual storytelling. The end of the school year is nearing and there is much to do but everyone seems down for a whirlwind city symphony project on Super 8 so off we go! Planning, plotting, practicing and even popping off two hours of the actual film all in 4 hours? Gotta be a new SWS World Record! Special thanks to Rachael for bringing me to the Peabody Library for her 4 pm slot… a book lover’s dream! We reward our collective good work with a fabulous screening of student films in BSA’s glamorous cinema and a stroll home through sultry streets filled with the scent of spring flowers….
