📸 Zuill Bailey

🎤 📺 Zuill talks about his journey becoming a world-class cellist and the power of music. Zuill Bailey joined the music faculty of the University of Texas at El Paso in 2004.

Widely considered one of the premiere cellists in the world, Mr. Bailey is a multiple Grammy Award-winning, internationally renowned soloist, recitalist, Artistic Director, and teacher.

His rare combination of celebrated artistry, technical wizardry, and engaging personality has secured his place as one of the most sought after and active cellists today.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. sitkamusicfestival.org/special-online-content/#TEDx

Progress has slowed somewhat due to the coronavirus pandemic, as we have out-of-town mechanical workers who would be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in Sitka in observance of a local mandate, and also some delays in our supply chain.

We’re carrying on as best we can in spite of these unexpected challenges.

We are so excited to see our dreams come true! However, because of these delays, change orders, and cost overruns … the fundraising continues. If you’d like to learn more about this project and help us clear the final fundraising hurdle, please get in touch with our office to learn more, or Donate Now! bit.ly/DonateStevensonHall
