This week, from Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine, our line-up of outstanding performers includes two sisters from Maine performing from Bach’s Double Violin Concerto, a 14-year-old harpist from New Hampshire who was originally attracted to her instrument through an inexplicable force, and a fantastic trumpet trio who join members of the Portland Youth Symphony Orchestra for an exuberant grand finale.
