Kati’s Run, our most recent performance

Kati is an amazing little girl who lives with Ataxia Telangiectsia (AT).  She has beaten cancer (the AT makes her more vulnerable to cancer).  Kati is only 13 years old. She is a very courageous and strong young lady!

This concert for Kati, was a collaboration between Chase the Music, composer Nick Halsey of Cello Expressions, and the Boulder Cello Project (and friends) with venue and production assistance from eTown.

The program was a mixture of Kati’s favorite songs – popular music (like Coldplay & Adele), songs from a couple of musicals (Sound of Music & Mary Poppins) and classical music (Copland). To top off the event, the program premiered an original composition  – ‘Kati’s Run’ by Nick Halsey.  Nick flew out from Oregon to perform with the Boulder Cello Project (BCP) at this concert.  The piece, “Kati’s Run”, was named for Kati’s love of skiing, and even though she isn’t skiing now, she enjoys her runs on a piece of adaptive gear.

Enjoy Kati’s Run.
