Intersection: Political Activism, Mr. Rogers & Contemporary Classical Music

The Parkland school shooting last month sparked calls for tougher gun control and thrust student activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school into the spotlight.

As students prepare to demonstrate in Washington DC Saturday and at cities around the country, some parents are also raising the question: whether to attend a rally with young kids in tow.

We’ll explore what this new wave of political activism means for college and high school students and for parents of younger children too.

Then, before Fred Rogers was a children’s television icon, sporting his trademark sweater and sneakers, he was a music student at Rollins College. We’ll take a Mr. Rogers walking round the Winter Park Campus.

And, contemporary classical music is finding a new and enthusiastic audience in Orlando. A conversation with composer Christopher Cerrone, soprano Ariadne Greif and clarinetist Natalie Grata about new music coming up.
