13-Year-Old Matthew Chang Plays Chopin
A teenage mezzo-soprano sings from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma and shares a little of her Hawaiian background. We also meet a fantastic 13-year-old pianist who performs Chopin and an ambitious violist from Texas. Plus two young violinists tackle Bach and Wieniawski.
