This week, from the Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce, Florida, our line-up of outstanding young musicians includes a teenage guitarist from the mesa of Utah performing Terrega and a local 12-year-old performing a prelude by Rachmaninoff. Also, Roving Reporter Emily Mayer will take that mesa-loving guitarist to see the ocean for the very first time, and, in an especially exciting finale, three teenagers cram their six hands onto one piano to perform a playful arrangement of “America” from Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story.
