Show 203 | Atlanta, Georgia

Recorded: Wednesday, November 4, 2009

This week, from the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, our line-up of outstanding performers includes a 13-year-old pianist from Tennessee performing Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 6, the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra performing the music of William Walton, and a 15-year-old bassist from nearby Marietta who plays his unwieldy instrument like it's a violin. Also, you'll be reacquainted with a talented From the Top alumna from our second season, who now makes her living touring with one of the nation's hottest young chamber groups!
