Dr. Framil will be in Carson City to perform as a guest soloist with the Carson City Symphony on February 27.
The Artist-in-Residence event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Framil will work with cello students from the Carson City Symphony Symphony Youth Strings program; the Carson Middle School, Eagle Valley Middle School and Carson High School Orchestras; and adult cellists in the community.
