The episode Road Movies features stories of life on the road paired with music by John Adams. American Stories is currently supported through Chamber Music America Ensemble Forward Grant and the New York Community Trust.
Sophia Stoyanovich received both her Bachelor and Masters of Music from The Juilliard School and has studied under the tutelage of Li Lin, Mark Steinberg, and Sylvia Rosenberg. She is an active educator in the New York area and performs on a 1930 Berger violin made in New York City.
