In today’s UVA Today, I have a story on the imminent return of the students to Grounds. As a longtime Charlottesville resident, I hear all of the wailing and gnashing of teeth every August, about how nice it was to have the city largely to ourselves over the summer, how much worse the traffic is, yadda, yadda, yadda.
OK, so that’s all true. But beginning this weekend, we also get to bump into students like Jean-Mary Aubourg, a fourth-year Echols Scholar who spent a bit of his summer performing on Broadway. Yep, on Broadway — he sent us this video of his singing “Make Them Hear You,” from “Ragtime,” at a summer cabaret in Circle in the Square theater.
Sorta makes the traffic headaches seem a little more worthwhile, no?
