She currently plays cello with The Broslyn Bards, Raging Sea and Everything and Nothing. She began learning cello at age seven, grew up in the classical world and participated in Wichita's Youth Symphonies; she became burned out and quit before her love of music diminished. After living and working in another state for seven years, she returned to Wichita, and ended up meeting musicians, artists, and poets who reignited this love of music.</em></p><p></p> Fri, 12 Jul 2013 16:21:51 +0000 Jedd Beaudoin 20283 at http://kmuw.org A Musical Life: Kylie Brown
