On Wednesday, December 28, Julie spent 90 minutes with 15 young musicians from New Mexico teaching exercises from the Caruso technique. All-State winners from this year and last year played solos for her and she worked with them individually. Adult French Horn players, and community members observed the class and inspiring exchange at the Santa Fe Youth Symphony's rehearsal space. Kids and adults alike were inspired and delighted.
