They Came to Play

This documentary appeared on KERA Channel 13 recently.  The stories and music of these pianists, competing in the Van Cliburn Amateur Competition, are inspiring and uplifting.  I recommend that all my adult students take the time to be encouraged by these fellow pianists, and for my younger students to watch and appreciate the joy of making music - no matter what your age!
