Format: Hardcover
Author Christopher Gordon has provided an historic portrait of a great initiator who was present and involved in many changes in the evolution of music education.
Dr Shetler began the study music at an early age, became an excellent cellist who also ended up working on the Manhattan Project in 1940s.
"He remembered the orchestra being of excellent quality," at Oak Ridge.
By 1965 he was conducting "Carmina Burana," at Severance Hall where he had received a professorship. All the while still playing music.
Forward to 1972 after becoming a Doctor himself 'Received the honor of hooding Dr Shinichi Suzuki 'Bringing full closure, in full circle to the ironic fate that Donald had been part of the manhattan project"
