My Music. My Story. is one of CMI’s many new initiatives to feature music, musicians and music lovers in a fun way. We hope you enjoy getting to know a few of your mover and shaker neighbors while learning how they interact with and think about music. We spoke to Anyé Carson, Pruning Coordinator at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, to learn how she interacts with and thinks about music.
Tell us about the work you do and how you involve music in your work.
I worked for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for six years as a Youth Tree Team member and became Pruning Coordinator in March. Through the years, music has been a big part of my work environment. I like to sing songs when i am working outside or freestyle to whatever task I am doing that day at work.
How else do you enjoy music?
I listen to music more than I watch television. I clean, drive, run and sometimes fall asleep listening to music. My family is music oriented; my mother worked for a music company when I was younger, and my father is a disc jockey. I also think listening to music while eating makes the meal a lot more enjoyable.
Tell us about your most memorable musical experience.
Recently, I got to see Rihanna perform for free at White River State Park. I never thought I would be able to see her in concert, let alone for free! It was awesome singing along with her and the crowd. It was an experience I will never forget.
