Special Thanks

We are grateful for TYSA alumnus Cora Reuter, whose photographs appear throughout our website!

Cora performed in TYSA orchestras from 1990-1999, including acting as concertmaster of TYS. She runs a full violin studio in Gig Harbor, coaches for TYSA, and is a full time portrait and event photographer. An avid gardener, her beloved half-acre garden will be featured on the Gig Harbor Garden Tour in June 2023.
