Feminine Fusion

S06 Ep03: Silver and Gold


“Gold and silver and sunshine is rising up.”   – Noel Gallagher


There is always something exciting about the glint of sun reflecting off of the gold and silver of the instruments moving across the field as a marching band performs.  This week, we’ll hear performances from women who play brass and silver instruments.  There are solo performances, and ensembles – even a concerto.
