Her presentation unfolds simply through all-text slides paired with a rotating soundtrack of music clips. Through "The Dilemma of the Modern Violinist," Ariel hopes new listeners will be inspired, and that "the keepers of this beautiful, unique genre of music never lose sight of its power to connect, not separate."
