Labor Day weekend has always been a transitional holiday. We go from a sense of carefree summer and vacations to a "back to work" (or school) mindset. Over the next week, we are showing some wonderful music documentaries that show how hard work pays off. The Orchestra of the Piazza Vittorio demonstrates how a few dedicated and adventurous people can change a wreck into recreation. Soweto Strings brings us into the lives of children and young adults in the music classes of violist Rosemary Nalden. You don't have to love classical music to be swept away in the positive attitude that these kids have to their stern taskmaster, and she to them. We should all have such open minds and hearts. And a quick look ahead: next week we'll be premiering Renegade Fiddler about Gilies Apap, a classically trained violinist who goes on a journey to India to teach, and be taught. It's a real ear-opener!
