Just ask anyone who was at CHSMA on February 24th. It was a Wizard of Oz moment right here in Chapel Hill! Staff and students huddled together in the middle of a severe tornado watch…but, what REALLY happened was just this. Faculty seized the moment and the only pitch to hear was in a song or two, as rain and thunder passed on through. Guitar instructor Justin Handy and voice instructor Uzma Khan kept us entertained with popular songs while students colored (and practiced their “duck and cover”).
Huddled in the middle of downstairs where it was safe for all to stay, staff and students and parents mingled together with guitar and vocal serenades. It wasn’t your typical CHSMA kind of day, but one that shall remain a memory for all of those who had to stay.
“It really was no miracle.
What happened was just this.
The wind began to switch, the house to pitch…”
