Belmont University, Nashville, TN
A group of Belmont students hit the road this summer for the ultimate musical experience. Alex Karroll, of Valencia, and nine other students experienced life on the road during the East Coast, 15-show run of the Happy Together Tour, joining their professor, musical legend and co-founding member of The Turtles Mark Volman.
Created as a summer course, these students spent time in their “classroom” for nearly three weeks-a tour bus, hotel rooms, stages and countless green rooms. Starting in Biloxi, Mississippi, the group followed the tour through Florida and back up to Virginia, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania before ending in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire.
