Michael Province and the gang

I just love this kid! Ever since I saw him in the 3-part series The World's Greatest Musical Prodigies (although it only included 3 countries), along with composer Alex Prior, little pianist Zhang Xiaoming, violinist Simone Porter and cellist Nathan Chan who all seemed professional for their age, I've started looking for classical music, something I've always been deficient in.

Some of the kids Alex chose were not the best based on the auditions. Aristo was the better pianist and his improvisations were very impressive. But like Alex, I was drawn to Zhang Xiaoming. The program was an inspiring one nonetheless.
