A disco ball. Flashing neon lights blinding the audience. Mushrooms, unicorns and a massive hamster ball encasing Wayne Coyne, the lead singer of The Flaming Lips.

I woke up at 7:45a.m. on Monday, January 11, to the electronic sound of “Rella,” by Odd Future, my alarm tone for the past year. Turning off the alarm, I noticed that I had a text that I recieved at 4 a.m., while I was asleep. My eyesight was still fuzzy, so I didn’t see what it said. I set my ...

Not many can say they’ve been the co-principal cellist of the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra and principal of the Missouri All State Orchestra and have performed as a soloist with the St. Louis Civic Orchestra. But Eric Cho, senior, can. Cho has been playing for seven or eight years and has...
