This week on your PBS stations, Korean-born American pianist Min Kwon asked more than 70 very different composers each to create a variation of the familiar song “America the Beautiful,” originally composed in 1882 by the organist of Grace Church in Newark. Min says the project arose from reflections on her immigrant experience.

Also on this week's episode, clarinetist Dan Levinson, and ceramic artists Alan Willoughby and Linda Shusterman.
