The diversity of her performance allowed the time to be filled, but flowing. She also added a few " Mystery pieces" to test the Audience's musical ears.
After the performance Ms. Hassman took the time to talk with some of the Student about music, different kinds of sounds that the Cello can make, and how her career as a musician has helped her travel the world, and meet people, along with the work and practice it takes to be a top performer.
