Instructor Don Foster recently had the priviledge Saturday of performing at the Titanic Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN with their violinist Bill Young. He also got to see the violin that belonged to the ship's band leader Wallace Hartley. Hartley's body was recovered 10 days after the ship sank in 1912, with his violin and case strapped to him. Hartley and his bandmates played during the crisis, trying to calm the other passangers. He died doing what he loved and made sure his beloved instrument, a gift from his fiance, went into those frigid waters with him. What an inspiration!
