Perdue on performance pressures

How does flutist Aaron Perdue deal the pressures of performing in front of an audience? He laces up his sneakers and hits the road. Aaron Perdue is our fit PT Young Artist in Residence this week, and on Thursday's Performance Today he'll join Fred in the studio for music and conversation.
