Trumpet sensation Tine Thing Helseth joined Steve Staruch in studio today. Helseth counts Rene Fleming and the Spice Girls as her youthful idols. She admits to being overwhelmed when she realizes that she herself is an idol to many young players.
She performs an Edvard Grieg Society/Norway House-sponsored recital tonight at the Mindekirken Norwegian Lutheran Church in Minneapolis.
