The Cadets
Three National Public Radio (NPR) stations in Virginia broadcast a piece profiling the Cadets and the corps' organizational umbrella Youth Education in the Arts (YEA) on Wednesday. Cadets director George Hopkins and assistant director Justin Heimbecker were interviewed about the life lessons that YEA strives to teach. Music from the the Cadets' 2008 program "...and the pursuit of happiness." is featured in the clip. The show itself revolves around a fictional radio interview, modeled after NPR. Listen to the interview. (MP3, 3:30, 3.2 MB) YEA.org
