After her last performance at Carnegie Hall, Audrey Nadeau - a Juilliard graduate cellist - left New York City for Canada’s Alberni Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where she made this video, performing Celtic Passage for solo cello by David Eby while stood on an 8-foot stump next to Big Lonely Doug, Canada’s second largest Douglas-fir tree.

The idea was to ‘embody the loud suffering and desolation of the barren soil and burned stumps’ , as the cellist puts it, as an apology to the giant Douglas-Fir for the massive 2012 clearcut in which it was left standing alone.
