On this week’s show, we take a trip down memory lane as we bring you our Annual Highlights Show. This program features some of the best music and stories from our archives including the performance of a fine pianist who, at the age of 13, has already started medical school. Also, one of the finest teenage trombone quartets in the country performs a contemporary piece by Walter Ross and we'll meet a young cellist who has a rather screwball comedy life.
