Jennifer Workman Jesness is a public defender. If you ever find yourself in court, you want her on your side. She never backs down. (Is it because she studied the clarinet as a kid?)
It is a bit ironic that one of her favorite pieces of music is the "March to the Scaffold" from the Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique. She'll cross-examine the reasons for that piece and share the rest of her personal playlist on this week's Music with Minnesotans.
Next week: The inventor and the musician!
