This week, we're at Studzinski Recital Hall on the campus of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine where you'll hear a teenage cellist from Chicago perform from Rachmaninoff’s beautiful Sonata in G Minor and a young violinist from Washington play the first movement from Poulenc's Sonata and talk about her colorful home on Whidbey Island. Also, one of our talented alums returns to the From the Top stage to play piano and challenge Christopher O'Riley to a "pepper flipping" contest!
