Decoda visited one of Robert Slade's band classes at CMA last week, and the students were enthralled with Decoda's playing and the trio's description of their pieces!

Claire Bryant, originally from Camden, SC, is a founding member of the acclaimed chamber music collective, Decoda - an Affiliate Ensemble of Carnegie Hall, and she is the Principal Cellist of Trinity Wall Street's chamber orchestra in Novus, NY.

Claire Bryant generously donated tickets to several cadets at CMA for Decoda's performance at the Fine Center of Camden, SC.

Cadet Matt Connell, Cadet Brian Klupple, Cadet Austin Oliver, Cadet David Vargo, and Cadet Christofer Williams enjoyed a delightful evening of chamber music. Alice Thaxton, a fine arts teacher at CMA, accompanied the cadets.
