Appearing Live On Detroit’s WRCJ Today

It will be my pleasure today to join WRCJannouncer Chris Felcyn today sometime between 2:30-4:00 ET to discuss the recently concluded American Orchestras Summit in Ann Arbor.

Chris is an intriguing host and I’m sure it will be a fascinating discussion. Note to Weekly Email Summary Subscribers: this week’s newsletter will go out on Saturday instead of today
