Tuesday on The Front Row

Violinist Kikuei kKeda
We talk with Kikuei Ikeda, the second violinist of the Tokyo String Quartet, as he tells us about the program of works by Beethoven, Webern and Schubert that he and his colleagues will play tomorrow night at Rice University as they inaugurate the Houston Friends of Music's 46th season of chamber-music recitals. . .

Also on tomorrow's show, Director Ron Jones and lead actress Alice Gatling talk with us about Intimate Apparel, a deeply moving and insightful drama about an African-American seamstress looking for love and acceptance in early twentieth-century New York City … the play is this season's first offering from Main Street Theater.  . . . . 

And Producing Director Christina Giannelli and Suchu Dance Company Manager Louis Saletan describe some of the sights and sounds to be taken in during Houston's twelfth annual Weekend of Contemporary Dance this Friday and Saturday at Miller Outdoor Theatre in Hermann Park.

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

KUHF's latest internet offering includes a weekly excerpt from our archive of local concert recordings. It's part of the new The Front Row Performance of the Week Podcast.
