Catching Up on CVIO
If you’ve been keeping up with Charlottesville Inside-Out this season, you know we’ve covered a lot of interesting topics so far. For example, I had a great time playing music with Ellis Paul, one of the leading voices in American songwriting, and learning more about his craft. And I really enjoyed visiting Morven Farm, a historical “think-tank” located in one of the most beautiful spots in Albemarle County. I also brushed up on my ballet; arm wrestled for charity: and even interviewed my own father, renowned National Geographic photographer and writer, Bill Allard.
Clearly, we’ve been pretty busy at CVIO! Maybe you caught the time I hammered nails with the Building Goodness Foundation or visited the Arc of the Piedmont -- a wonderful organization that provides important services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities? Or how about the segment when I had an opportunity to simulate the life of a UVa med-student? Now that was exciting!
So, what’s coming up next on CVIO? I’ll be talking with the folks at LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph to learn more about the fabulous images hanging from the trees on the downtown mall; then I’ll be shooting hoops with the team at VABA (Virginia Basketball Academy); belly dancing with the Fire in the Belly Dance Co.; catching up on my reading with the folks at the Virginia Festival of the Book; taking a ride in a very light and oh-so-very-fast car; and getting in touch with history (literally) at the Griffin Discovery Room at Monticello. That’s just to name a few…
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback about the show as well as your ideas for future segments. Charlottesville is such a lovely and interesting place. We’re rolling into our 6th Season of CVIO, and we’ve just scratched the surface on exciting and diverse show ideas. Let us know if there is person or place of interest that we haven’t covered. Or perhaps there is a sport I should try out or a hobby I should consider? You’ve seen me on ice skates, roller skates, in a hot air balloon and on a horse in a polo field. Chances are -- I may very well be up for trying it.
