Cutler-Metzger earned her bachelor’s from PSU in 2008, followed by her masters in violin and orchestral conducting from Illinois State University. She is a private music instructor at Thomas Jefferson School in Joplin and performs regularly with groups such as the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas. 

The festival, which kicked off on July 1 and will continue through Aug. 12, is a collaboration of The Bicknell Family Center for the Arts, the Pittsburg State University Department of Music, and local performers in an attempt to provide a concert-like experience for performers and audience members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
