For one month during the summer of 1996, producer Brenda Hutchinson drove her piano from New York City to San Francisco in the back of a U-Haul truck.

Over the course of 6,300 miles, she asked people along the way to play her piano and tell her a piano story.

How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall first aired on Soundprint in 2001.
