NPR’s From the Top with Host Christopher O’Riley: Vermillion, South Dakota / Show 276
From the campus of the University of South Dakota at the National Music Museum, you’ll hear some of the amazing historical instruments in their collection, including an historic fortepiano, a vintage guitar, and a unique gamelan. You’ll also meet a 13-year-old who lives on a ranch in the Black Hills of South Dakota. She raises steers to sell in the fall, rides her horse, Dandy, feeds the chickens, and she’s one fine classical violinist.
