On the radio/podcast: Week of 1/5/2015
REPEAT BROADCAST: Show 290, recorded in May 2014. From Norfolk, Virginia, at the Virginia Arts Festival, this episode features a steel drum band from the local community, and a violin-cello duo made up of two wonderfully talented brothers.
Their unusually generous and easygoing humor with each other is not only charming, but it also makes for a seamless musical collaboration (get a close-up view of their music-making here). We’ll also hear a spirited performance from Mozart’s Sonata No. 12 by a pianist who’s just 11 years old, and we’ll meet a 15-year-old violinist who happens to have some success as an actress: she recently landed a guest role in the NBC series “Believe.”
