"First Chair" is an uplifting comedy about artistic expression through music. It shouldn’t be hard for a talented, teenage cellist like Casey to express herself. She secretly writes her own music, but when she tries to share it, she's called uncool by her brothers (and dumped upside down in a box) and "just a child" by her teacher, among other things. By the end of "First Chair" Casey has overcome all obstacles and amazes us with a big musical finale. Plus she saves her high school music program to boot!
