SMU students answered the call to do something rewarding with their spring break – and they blogged their experiences, too. Find these stories at SMU’s popular Student Adventures site:

Fourteen talented Meadows singing actors performed selections from the Broadway stage March 7 in the Owen Arts Center. The showcase was the culmination of a two-week workshop with acclaimed Broadway conductor Kimberly Grigsby (’91), music director for Spring Awakening, the 2007 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. As an additional bonus for Meadows students, Grigsby brought her Broadway colleague Adam Guettel, the Tony-winning composer and lyricist of The Light in the Piazza, to help provide finishing touches to the performance.
