Rachel Barton Pine in the KUAC Studio

Rachel Baron Pine joined Lori Neufeld in the KUAC studio for Alaska Live performing a few violin pieces and discussing her extensive career. Rachel, originally from Chicago, was in Fairbanks for just 24 hrs as the spotlight guest artist for the "Sitka Winter Classic" put on by the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra. Rachel showcased her elaborate range of music appreciation from classical violin work to her contribution towards heavy metal and modern violin compositions.

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, Adventures in Good Music with Karl Haas, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas, she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.
