Mozart After Midnight: Pianist Simone Dinnerstein's Cuban Journey

Concert pianist Simone Dinnerstein has shared her love of classical music with children across America. Now, she's working with a youth orchestra in Havana, Cuba, after a highly unusual recording session. What's it like to play Mozart, after midnight? And could cultural exchanges like this one continue if the Trump administration reinstates travel restrictions between the U.S. and Cuba? Join us to meet Simone Dinnerstein and hear a bit of the youth orchestra's work. Then, we'll talk to NPR correspondent Tom Gjelten about the current state of U.S.-Cuba relations. We open today's show with a brief conversation with Michael Chertoff, former secretary of Homeland Security, about the terror attack in London on Saturday night.
