Feminine Fusion

S06 Ep20: High Strung, Part 4


“In music you can find your own niche. You can do what you want to do. There is really no job description. You have to find your own way, and that’s fun.” – Hilary Hahn

Feeling a bit high strung?  This week, that’s a good thing.  We’ll hear performances across the years from women playing violin and viola.
