Narrated by: Donna Schmidt
Donna Schmidt is a business/IT consultant in Seattle, WA who was happy to use the new recording equipment she bought for an online music production class that she took during the pandemic. She did the recording in the new music studio that was her husband’s pandemic project — converting a wretched tiny room into a beautiful sound proof marvel. This was her first time using it for a story recording. Usually she is practicing and recording her passion — jazz violin.
