On this week's episode of The Score, Paige, Lee and Rocky unpack their complicated feelings around last week's verdict heard 'round the world before turning their attention to the incredible art and artists you can find right here in the Twin Cities. They're joined by renowned violinist Emilia Mettenbrink to talk about growing up in Minneapolis, her experiences as a Black woman in classical music, and the Tiny Balcony Concerts, a series of concerts she performed from her home during lockdown that helped a community stay connected through the darkest and most isolating of times. And then, as always, we end on a moment of Pure Black Joy! Join us, won't you?
