Dear Commonwealth Winter Tour (Winter 2012-13)

Boris Popadiuk, OC '14, is a native of Portland, Oregon and studies cello with Darrett Adkins. Boris began playing cello at age eight and has fostered a diverse relationship with music in the 12 years since. As principal cellist of the Portland Youth Philharmonic and a Chamber Music Northwest Young Artist Fellow, Boris developed a love for classical performance in high school. This love initiated an effort to expand artistically, culminating in the formation of the folk-bluegrass trio, Boa Saida, in 2010 and his decision to join Dear Commonwealth in the Spring of 2012.
