Tune in tonight, Friday, October 08, 2010, for the PBS NewsHour and hear composer Jennifer Higdon and violinist Hilary Hahn. (Please check your local listings, in San Antonio, it's at 7pm on KLRN)
Jennifer Higdon made headlines this year when she won the Pulitzer Prize for music. But the tune became even sweeter when Hilary Hahn, one of the world’s leading violinists and Higdon’s own student, decided to record the winning concerto. PBS NEWSHOUR Senior Correspondent Jeffrey Brown traveled to Philadelphia to sit down with them both at the Curtis Institute of Music.
