Assistant Professor of Violin Nicholas DiEugenio, recent recipient of a Yale AlumniVentures Grant, traveled to the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas from August 18-20. BAMC is currently the primary location to which injured US Soldiers return from deployments throughout the world. During the trip, Nicholas performed for wounded warriors and their families at the BAMC and the Warrior Family Support Center. As part of the project, Nicholas commissioned and performed a piece for solo violin by Brooklyn-based composer and fellow Yale graduate Ted Hearne. The piece is inspired by the patterns and textures of a quilt by the violinist's mother, Janet DiEugenio, and Nicholas performed the work after presenting the quilt at the WFSC. Nicholas was presented with an honorary BAMC coin, and the quilt will be displayed for one month at the WFSC before being given to a soldier.
