Italian pianist Beatrice Rana says, "(A concert) happens only once, and it either goes well or doesn't." She doesn't get caught up in reviews; she simply wants to connect with listeners. On today's show, we'll hear Beatrice Rana play three etudes by Frederic Chopin at a concert at Spivey Hall in Morrow, Georgia.
