Fantastic first day of our band trip! Today the students toured the Titanic museum, seeing artifacts from the ship and learning its history, and about the time period.
The Titanic museum also had a special exhibit about the musicians aboard the Titanic. If you don’t know about these brave men, you should do a quick Google search. The students were able to view the most expensive artifact from the ship, which just so happens to be the violin of the band leader. It was recovered with his body a few days after the wreck. It was recently purchased at auction for $1.7 million.
Tomorrow we are off to Silver Dollar City to again see a different way of life from a different time, to hear the Annual Bluegrass Festival, and have some fun!
