As reported recently in NPR’s Deceptive Cadence, an 11 year old violinist named Dylan Hamme got to meet and play a duet with his music idol, Joshua Bell, on live national television no less. It seems he was busking on 5th Avenue near Rockefeller Center and was asked in to the NBC studio of the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
