Students in SAMPle (SAMP’s Laptop Ensemble), directed by Christi Denton, workshop “The Witness” in preparation for a final concert in June. Lee Dunn, a student in the department of film, documented the rehearsal and took photographs. Students improvised with field recordings taken at Horning Seed Orchard, which was partially burned in the autumn 2020 wildfires. Community members strolling through the park stopped briefly to listen and ask questions.
