A Tribute To Our Planet
Jill Pasternak interviews harpist Yolanda Kondonassis and composer George Fenton, who are as passionate about the environment as they are about their music.
Grammy-nominated harpist Yolanda Kondonassis has authored Our House Is Round, a book that teaches children about the importance of protecting the Earth. She's also donating a portion of the proceeds from her album Air to the Environmental Defense Fund.
Composer George Fenton wrote the score for the popular BBC television series Planet Earth. The beautiful images from the TV series will be projected at the Mann Center on July 29th, 2010 as Fenton conducts the Philadelphia Orchestra in playing his Emmy Award-winning score.
