First, San Francisco's Marsh Youth Theater tackle the artistic difficulties of acting, singing and dancing in the premiere of "Jip, His Story." Then head to Oakland to see the Great Wall Youth Orchestra play traditional Chinese instruments with solos by Tyler Thompson, a prodigy of Chinese Opera. Finally, hear teen singer/songwriter Lauren Shera perform her original works, a blend of folk rock and poetry, accompanied on her signature purple guitar.
