Description
Students and Lois Pitts pose with musical instruments.
Curatorial Comment
It is an unusual "orchestra" that is made up of banjos, guitars, and violins. The students were likely given only rudimentary instruction in European or American folk music--another form of language that was different from Indigenous forms of music.
