The Kennedy Center's National Symphony Orchestra Visits Carroll

Students and faculty gathered for a special treat in Carroll’s Gordon McMahon Theatre on Monday, January 8th. Usually this time period is reserved for school-wide mass, but on this particular day Carroll had the pleasure of being the closing engagement for the Kennedy Center’s National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) community tour titled, ‘NSO In Your Neighborhood.’ Four bassists from the NSO shared their love for music through performance and intermittent dialogue regarding their individual beginnings in music and how their passions developed. “It’s exciting for us,” tells Alex Jacobsen about the NSO In Your Neighborhood program, “It’s a chance to share an experience that doesn’t just walk in your house every day.” Bassist Charlie Nilles served as the host, introducing his colleagues and much of the music. The quartet played a variety of arrangements that included Bach, New Orleans’ composers, decade of the 1980’s favorites, and the modern hit All About That Bass (Meghan Trainor), which incited a crowd-wide snap-a-long.

New Coach. New Season. New Success.

The legacy of Carroll basketball is one that boasts of undefeated teams, championship titles, and its fair share of professional athletes. The teams of the late 50’s and early 60’s made ‘Carroll basketball’ a term associated with excellence, and in the 80’s and 90’s Carroll achieved their goal to Bring Basketball Back. Every hill has its valley, but the hard work and dedication required to push a team uphill in the competitive Washington Catholic Athletic Conference (WCAC) has been assumed by Coach Michael Powell. Carroll’s varsity basketball team opened their season with a 63-50 home win over Thurgood Marshall Academy, a 2016-2017 DCSAA quarterfinalist. “We have set out a special task,” Powell explains, “to wake up the pulse within the basketball program and recreate the buzz about Carroll academics and athletics.”
