Bozeman's Werner Quartet performs at Wyoming Girls School in Sheridan

Casper Star-Tribune correspondent Judy Hagerott wrote this piece about the visit of the Werner Quartet to Sheridan’s Wyoming Girls School:

SHERIDAN -- The Werner Quartet of Bozeman, Mont., became a conduit of energy, inspiration and dedication to residents of the Wyoming Girls School on Friday night.

The cello quartet is comprised of four Werner siblings: Hele'ne', 20, a sophomore at Yale; Luc, 19, a freshman at Harvard; Mariel, 17, and Ande're, 16, both students at Bozeman Charter School. When not traveling the world making music, the gifted musicians often put their talent to good work, such as the Girls School performance.

The Wyoming Girls School is a therapeutic and educational facility for treatment of court-ordered delinquent girls ages 12 to 21. The program teaches youths to take personal accountability for their actions and develop socially responsible values in preparation for successful transitions back to their families and communities.
