Sitka Summer Music Festival cellist Armen Ksajikian plays for the resident bears Thursday at the Fortress of the Bears bear sanctuary in Sitka. Ksajikian was inspired by the acoustics at the converted pulp mill clarifier tank and played a selection of music, including a composition by Hector Berlioz for the bears. With Ksajikian is Les Kinnear, director of the sanctuary.
