Lori Presthus - cellist and visual artist - passes
It is with sadness that I have to make note of the death of Lori Presthus, the Portland-based cellist who was a member of the Portland Baroque Orchestra. She passed away on November 20 at age 57. According to this obituary, she had a re-occurrence of cancer. In addition to her expertise with the cello, Presthus excelled in painting and jewelry making. I had the pleasure of interviewing her and writing it up for Oregon Music News. Presthus was a remarkable person, and she will be missed in the Portland community.
