Wednesday on The Front Row

Greg Harbar of The Gypsies
We'll hear some of the music that Music Director Hans Graf, violinist Gil Shaham and the Symphony will perform on Saturday evening's concert, A Carmen Fantasy, and then we'll welcome to the show, Ferenc Illenyi, Hungarian-born member of the Symphony's violin section, and Greg Harbar, founder and leader of the long-standing Houston ethnic-music band, The Gypsies. . .

The Gypsies will provide the eastern-European-flavored traditional dance tunes at the Gypsy Rendezvous party that will follow the Symphony's Saturday night concert. . .

And, as if that weren't enough, we'll have a studio preview of this year's Bayou City Concert Musicals' production of a rarely-performed Broadway show.  Fiorello, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's Pulitzer- and Tony-Award-winning musical biography of early twentieth-century New York City mayor, Fiorello LaGuardia, plays this weekend only at Houston Community College's Heinen Theatre.

Join us each weekday afternoon at 3:00 for an up-close look at the Houston area arts scene on The Front Row.
