Young People's Concerts

Today marks the 80th anniversary of a New York Philharmonic tradition: the Young People's Concerts. They predate the late Leonard Bernstein, but it was under the legendary conductor that the concerts became an entertaining force for a generation of American children. Some of those children are now musicians in the New York Philharmonic. Jeff Lunden reports.
