Tune of the Day: The Tioga Waltz

by Stephen Foster

Stephen Foster's musical talent was evident early on. At the age of seven, he came across a flute in a general store, and although he had never seen one before, he picked it up and had mastered it before leaving the store. He was soon proficient on both the flute and the piano. He wrote his first composition, the Tioga Waltz, while attending Athens Academy in Athens, Pennsylvania, and performed it during the 1839 commencement exercises, at the age of thirteen.
