A guitar ensemble performance in Kulas Recital Hall featured Suvan Agarwal '23, Aidan Wiley '20, and Craig Slagh '21. The passion demonstrated in their live streamed performance was captured in photos and chosen to be among the images included in this week’s photo series.

Acoustic guitars, theatrical waves, a stage as a classroom, evening leaves, opera in Wilder Bowl, a Woodland Street bike ride, and the journey home.
