This year marks the 100th anniversary of our National Park system. On this weekend's Performance Today, composer Stephen Lias joins us to discuss how he discovered a love of the outdoors, and how the National Parks have inspired 20 of his compositions. And we'll hear one such piece; Crown of the Continent, inspired by Glacier National Park.
