In The Region:

Tonight, at a 13th century Gothic church in the heart of Vienna, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra has a hard act to follow:  namely it's own triumph in Prague over the weekend in the opening concert of its tour. WKSU's Vivian Goodman reports from Vienna that the ensemble and its conductor are still bathing in the glow of standing ovations, and savoring the memory of a different kind of treat, a dinner cruise.

Goodman reports on the youth orchestra's debut in Europe

The audio clip brought tears to my eyes when I heard my son playing timpani from Prague. Thank you, Vivian, for the report.
