It’s said the cello is the instrument which sounds most like the human voice. That may be why it resonates for some, like no other.
A young woman from Giles County is one of only six people outside Great Britain to have been accepted at the Royal College of Music in London to study cello next year.
Miriam Liske-Doorandish has been playing the instrument virtually all her life. Her mother is Lisa Liske-Doorandish, the former principal cellist in the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra. She still runs a studio, gives lessons and still plays for Opera Roanoke.
