NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Grab your smart phone and Bluetooth speaker, if you have one, to participate in Saturday night's "Unsilent Night" in downtown Nacogdoches.
It's sort of a cell phone version of caroling brought to Nacogdoches by The Stephen F. Austin State University Percussion Studio and Dr. Brad Meyer, Director of Percussion Studies.
Dr. Brad Meyer, Director of Percussion Studies-"I already downloaded the app to my phone," said Dr. Brad Meyer, SFA's director of percussion studies. "It's called, 'Unsilent Night'. You bring it up. All you have to do is if you're already connected to some Bluetooth speaker, so for me, I'll use this. It has four different songs basically. Each one is exactly 45 minutes in length and so all the app does is it chooses one of the four tracks to play and that kinda becomes your part."
It will all make sense once you get at Liberty Bell on Main Street at 7:15 p.m. Meyer will get you and your technical devices in synch with everyone else. It's suggested you transport the speaker in a mesh bag for the 45-minute stroll. Afterwards, warm up to some jazz at Liberty Bell.
