The students were fortunate to have Dr. Ruth Boden visit classes this past week. She brought her carbon fiber cello and performed for the students on both cello and bass. She had some encouragement for the students and gave them some great commentary on their playing. Dr. Boden hikes with her cello and performs on mountaintops each summer. (Hence the carbon fiber cello.) For more information, here is her website: https://www.musicoutsidefourwalls.org/home.html. There is a short movie of one of her hikes in the Wallowa mountains. Check it out!
