Cellist Yvonne Caruthers joined the National Symphony Orchestra in 1978. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music, she played with the orchestras of Syracuse, Rochester, Denver, and Buffalo before coming to Washington. Ms. Caruthers teaches privately as well as coaching cellists in the top orchestras of the Northern Virginia Youth Symphony Association. She is founder and director of the Young Musicians' Practice Institute, which teaches practice techniques to aspiring musicians from around the country. Ms. Caruthers is an innovator in the field of audience education, designing multi-media programs for audiences of all ages. Last season she directed a program about "Science and Music" for the Kennedy Center, and will lead a teacher workshop on the same subject. This year her show is titled "Inside the Instruments of the Orchestra" featuring a close look at several instruments, how they are made, how one learns to play them, and what goes on backstage before a concert. The show ran November and February in the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theater Lab. She is currently producing a CD-rom on the same subject, with a projected completion date of late winter. Ms. Caruthers is a popular lecturer on musical topics for the Smithsonian Institution. The 1997-98 season included seminars about Brahms and Bach's Passion music. During the 1998-99 season she is lecturing on the music of Ravel and the Beethoven string quartets.
