Teen Trumpet Player Studied with the Master

At 17, Sean Hennessey was playing trumpet and composing, but he dreamed of playing one of his own compositions with the Chicago or New York Philharmonic. The teen had been studying with his idol, trumpet master Wynton Marsalis, since he was 12. During his appearance on the show six years ago, he performed Ernest Bloch's Proclamation.
