Amy Cowell is pictured performing in her senior recital at conservatory in Laramie, Wyoming.  In 1995 Amy purchased Thurmond's first cello, dedicated to his son Elliot.  The cello is modeled after Stradivarius and was constructed with wood cut from the forests around Mittenwald, Bavaria in 1954.  Thurmond obtained the pattern for this cello from his master teacher, Karl Roy, who directed Thurmond through its construction.
