It isn’t every day that the world’s leading guitar virtuoso comes to town, but today was that day, and Classical 101 was there when it happened.

Cellist Joshua Roman is no stranger to Columbus audiences. On this trip, however, you'll get to know him a little better. Rather than interpreting music written by others, he unveils his own composition.
