Youthful Energy, Mature Musicianship

Youth is wasted on the young, or so the saying goes. Meaning that some people think they could make better use of all that energy and enthusiasm and fearlessness than the ones who actually possess it. If you're one of those people, you're sure to change your mind today. We'll hear performances by a bunch of twenty-somethings who have youthful energy and mature musicianship bursting from every pore: two soloists from the Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth (pictured), and the newest PT Young Artist-in-Residence, guitarist Jordan Dodson.
