We've had a great run at The Town Hall in New York City, and we'll be sad to pack up and head west down 43rd Street.

This weekend we're wrapping up a run of rebroadcasts with a great show we did two years ago from Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis; Philip Brunelle and the Minnesota Orchestra were there with us, and Peter Ostroushko joined the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band.

You'll love it.
