16-year-old percussionist Glenn Choe is a member of one of the nation’s best marching bands. But this week, he’s off the football field and sharing this expressive performance of the fugue from J.S. Bach’s Violin Sonata No. 1 arranged for marimba.


A teenage flutist’s playful performance of Carmen Fantasie kicks off this week’s program. We also meet a young marimba player who’s a star member of one of the strongest marching bands in Texas, and a teenage pianist who performs the music of Chopin. Finally, we travel to one of Boston’s great churches to hear a young organist perform the music of J.S. Bach.
