On a night where Malibu High School’s winds and jazz musicians took the stage for their annual spring concert, an era was ending. 

Bill Bixler, teacher of instrumental music, conducted his last concert at the high school on Thursday, May 15.

Hollis Cadenhead sees interior design from an exterior perspective.

“I approach interior design from an architectural level,” Cadenhead said. “I see the details through the spaces and materials.”

In fact, Cadenhead was gearing up to begin architecture school in 2008 when she landed her first design gig with the Malibu Tennis Club. It was then that she discovered the new path that her passions would take — not in designing the buildings themselves, but in creating their character.
