When Anyango Yarbo-Davenport turned two years old, she asked her parents if she could get her own...orchestra. Anyango's mom said she didn't think she could make enough food for an entire orchestra. Still, the gift she received instead made a profound impact. On today's show, violinist Anyango Yarbo-Davenport plays from 'Carolinian Dances' by Robert Aldridge.
