A Song of Hope, Written and Recorded by Our Students
One of the many highlights of the 2014 Summer Youth Institute occurred when the Delta Music Institute’s Mobile Music Lab visited.
The song that the students wrote and recorded in June, “Same Level,” carries a wonderful and timely message as we search for hope and strength amid recent events in Ferguson and New York City.
The video for “Same Level,” linked below, was created by one of our students, using images from SYI, including a Community Building project in the Delta and a day trip to the Neshoba County site of the 1964 Freedom Summer murders.
Be warned: “Same Level” is a catchy tune! Staff are constantly singing and humming it. Enjoy, and please share this video during the holiday season: Folks should know the optimism that our students exude and inspire.
Thanks for being a friend of the William Winter Institute, and happy holidays.
