Show 146 | Boston, Massachusetts

Recorded: Sunday, October 8, 2006

From New England Conservatory's Jordan Hall in Boston, this week's show features outstanding musicians from 16 to 18, including a young baritone from Vermont, who'll share the rather severe, but totally effective methods of his vocal coach and a teenager who was composing before she even knew what the word "composing" meant. Also, Roving Reporter Caeli Smith joins us to help celebrate in song the amazing comeback story of a young pianist.
