On this week’s From the Top, taped at the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, you’ll hear from a violinist whose impromptu performance in a shoe store earned her a discount on a new pair of shoes, and you’ll learn how another young musician wrapped herself up and gave herself as a birthday present to a long lost friend.
