The Front Row, Thursday, 11/06/2008

Music Director Hans Graf and Pulitzer-Prize-winning composer, Aaron Jay Kernis, tell us about this weekend's Houston Symphony concerts, which open with Mister Kernis' Musica Celestis for String Orchestra.

Broadway and cabaret singer, song-writer and lyricist, Ann Hampton Callaway, talks about the two rather different performances she'll give this weekend at Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park. Also, Bob Stevenson speaks with Israeli musician Yuval Ron and his ensemble perform two selections from their repertoire of ancient and contemporary Jewish, Islamic and Christian music from various Middle Eastern traditions, more of which they'll present in concert Saturday evening as featured artists appearing at this year's Book and Arts Fair at the Jewish Community Center of Houston.
