Recently I have had the pleasure of seeing firsthand what a treasure Salisbury University is to the Eastern Shore.

The Theater and Music Department has put on two performances in the last few weeks that were outstanding.

The play, “Medea,” based on the Greek Tragedy by Euripides, was wonderful – the acting, the set and costumes.

I have rarely seen anything done as well as this, until last week when I had the opportunity to see the “Singers’ Showcase - From Ship to Shore: Celebrating 400 Years of Human Resilience Through Music.”

The phrase “blown away” has become almost trite in its usage; however, it is the only phrase that really fits the way I and other attendees felt about the production.

Dr. John Wesley Wright and the students were amazing – I am not a music or drama critic and do not know the proper verbiage – I can only say “well done.”

A beautiful tribute to the resilience of the African slaves brought to America starting in 1619.

I doubt anyone left the theater that night untouched by the tragedy and beauty of this performance.
