During the Britt Classical Festival, JPR hosted special pre-concert conversations in the Performance Garden with Britt soloists, guests, and orchestral members.

On Saturday, August 16th 2015 (closing night of the classical festival), JPR's Don Matthews spoke with Britt Principal Percussionist Tony Edwards.  Edwards had major roles to play in the 2015 season repertoire, and he'll talk about his early days of leaning percussion, and his work on a movie set!
