Petra Anderson, from the Colorado Incident, is a composer and musician


One of the surviving (and "overcoming") victims of the Colorado tragedy, Petra Anderson, is a composer and has studied at the University of the Pacific.

Here website and list of compositions can be found here

Short excerpts of several compositions can be played online.  They include “If You Are Able” and “Colloquy for Woodwind Quintet”.

The media has explained how she survived the wound because on an unusual structural formation in her brain.  She is now recovering with the help of music therapy. Sanjay Gupta on CNN has the best explanation, here.

This story of a young musician definitely bears following.Perhaps there will be some synergies with other musicians around the country in the future.
