WRR 101 Focus on the Arts: This teenage pianist in North Texas isn’t letting disability stand in her way

“Don’t let your disability hold you back,” says 16-year-old Grace Novacheck, a pianist who lives in Westlake, Texas. “You can try two, three, four, five, ten instruments until you get it right, and it can also lead to a lot of amazing opportunities.”
Grace – who was born with Escobar Syndrome – had an amazing opportunity of her own as a guest on From the Top, the nationally syndicated radio show spotlighting young classical musicians. She chatted with WRR’s Amy Bishop about the experience, and her mission of spreading optimism and kindness to her 105k TikTok followers. (You can also hear the From the Top episode with Grace on WRR 101 at noon on Saturday, April 1st!)
