Re: “Susie DeShazo and the DeShazo College of Music

Vance, I remember the DeShazo College of Music. I had a very traumatic experience there once when playing my violin in a recital, I couldn't remember how to end the piece! We had changed the ending shortly before the recital and I remember I went blank. The accompanist was patient for awhile, but when she realized I had no clue as to how to conclude, she pounded a resounding chord and I finally was able to stop. The DeShazo college was a wonderful place. I always felt like it was haunted and I remember the elderly lady who resided there. It was dark and full of corridors in the back, best I recall. You waited off to the side or in the back until your turn to step up on the stage and perform. It is so sad it is gone. I studied with Nona Sisco from about 1955 until about 1960 and would give anything to see photos of the old DeShazo College.
