Pianists Headline 12-Hour Tsunami Relief Benefit

Early in March, almost three months after the deadly Indian Ocean tsunami, 40 renowned pianists converged in New York for a concert to benefit victims of the disaster. The Faust Harrison "Pianothon" lasted from noon until midnight, with performances from jazz and classical musicians, including Elena Besprovanik, Philip Glass, Steve Kuhn, Jenny Lin and Kenny Werner.

NPR's Fred Child hosted the event, which collected donations for Save the Children's tsunami relief efforts.
