Lady Lamb The Beekeeper's passionate and highly textured debut studio album is called 'Ripely Pine.' Hear her play live in the Soundcheck studio.

In This Episode: For people with autism and their families, attending public theater and music events can be challenging -- if not impossible. Soundcheck speaks with the founder of the Autism Theater Initiative -- which recently announced an “autism-friendly” performance of Broadway’s “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.”

Plus: A live performance from singer-songwriter Aly Spaltro, a.k.a. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. We get to know her in a Blind Date.

And: We talk with the founder of the Afghan Youth Orchestra at the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, and an 18-year old pianist who studies at the Institute.
