    Gary, do you have any other tapes from this Salt Lake City series of workshops? I assisted Viola on this trip — my first out of town trip with her — and would love to see more of what was done.

      Hi Mary Ann,
      I have several tapes from this workshop. Much is not usable, I will post it to my Google drive in full and you can have a look through.
      I’m trying to do my best to restore sound and capture visuals that ‘teach’.
      What a great find, huh? Kolmus gave me the 1/2 reel to reel video tapes and I had them digitized.
