School of Music junior Jake
Woollen is the founder and orga-
nizer of the group, with help
from Assistant Professor of Con-
ducting and Associate Director
of Orchestras Christopher Lees.
"The idea really germinated
this summer at the Aspen Music
Festival in Colorado," Woollen
said. "I was there as a cellist,
and several other Michigan peo-
ple were there too - Chris Lees
and several other string players
- and that's really where the
idealistic air of Colorado really
allowed these ideas to flourish."
Woollen further developed
his dream during the fall semes-
ter while he studied abroad in
Paris. He began planning and
organizing the group and was
heavily inspired by the art of
music-making as practiced in
Europe.
"The general attitude
towards music-making in
Europe is quite different from
