Jacki speaks with Johanna Johnson, a young woman whose unusual request to the Make-A-Wish Foundation was realized last night. While most applicants seek to meet a movie star or take a trip, Johnson, who is recovering from Hodgkin's disease, chose to study the oboe with Joseph Robinson, Principal Oboe with the New York Philharmonic. To her surprise, she was asked to perform with them last night. Robinson also shares his advice on playing a better oboe.
