Chelsea Clinton reports on Mountain View music

MAKING MUSIC: Mountain View makes national TV.
  • MAKING MUSIC: Mountain View makes national TV.

Chelsea Clinton has produced another "Making a Difference" report for NBC News, this one on the effort to preserve musical tradition in Mountain View, Ark. by teaching it to kids.

Trivial point: The piece opens to the strains of "Ashokan Farewell." It's the fiddle tune that became familiar through its use in Ken Burns' epic documentary on the Civil War. It doesn't happen to be an old folk tune, but a 1982 work by Jay Unger. It sounds perfect in the context of a piece about keeping old-time music alive, though, just as it did on the Civil War opus.
