Midday Music Playlist for 02/29/2012

The Golden Ticket, based on Roald Dahl's classic book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, opens this Saturday, March 3 at the Cobb Energy Centre. After the noon news on GPB, Sarah Zaslaw speaks with composer Peter Ash, who is in Georgia to conduct the Atlanta Opera production of his show, and Atlantan 14-year-old Ruben Roy, who is one of two boy sopranos playing Charlie, and we sample the music.
