Aspen Wrap-up

The future of classical music is in good hands. Some of the stars of tomorrow are students at the Aspen Music Festival and School today. They gave standout performances all summer long. PT host Fred Child spent the last two weeks there, broadcasting from the studios of Aspen Public Radio. We wrap up our Aspen coverage this weekend with great performances, including violinist Gil Shaham playing a Mozart concerto. And we'll hear about the art of busking, performing as street musicians. We followed a few students around town as they earned some extra cash plying their trade on the streets of Aspen.
