While Beth Silver's career as a cellist may be quieter during the pandemic, she's found unexpected joy in a recently restored cello.
In May, she was given the instrument — which hadn't been played in decades by family friends — the Tatrallyays.
When she first saw it, she was in awe of its beauty and wanted to see if it could be restored. She took it to George Heinl & Co. music store, who were able to give it new life.
"It's sort of like I have a new member of the family or a new friend that I'm getting to know."
Watch the video to hear what she discovered about the cello's history.
