The Young Artists Showcase is a testament to the abundance of talented emerging musicians today. In fact, there simply isn’t enough time to include all of the wonderful performances on the show. Tune in Wednesday at 9 pm as Bob Sherman revisits some of these performances, presenting pieces that didn’t fit into earlier programs.

Straight from the cutting room floor, we hear selections from the Hilton Head Competition performance of 14-year-old pianist Tommy Jing Yu Leo, concerts from Washington D.C. and Tel Aviv, and arias performed by singers from the Martina Arroyo Foundation.
