An encore broadcast of a fascinating hour with cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. His brother Andrew's hit musical Phantom of the Opera is in the spotlight, due to Julian's recording, with violinist Sarah Chang, of a double concerto for violin, cello and orchestra that uses themes from the stage work. Also, Jill spends some time in tribute to the great Shirley Horn.
We visit the Wagner Free Institute of Science in Philadelphia. It's just won a national award for innovation in education for doing things the old-fashioned way! Susan Lewis explores truth, memory, and the murkiness of memoir with artists from this week's First Person Arts Festival. And in our regular exploration of the CultureFiles section at GoPhila.com, Jason Peifer visits the Wilma Theater.
On this week's Creatively Speaking! with Jim Cotter, we listen back to four recent features from the CultureFiles section at GoPhila.com. We'll visit Philadelphia's Civil War and Underground Railroad Museum. Almost thirty years after they created Franklin Court, we take a tour of the 1976 "ghost house" with architects Robert Venturi and Denise Scott-Brown. Susan Lewis visits Camden's Adventure Aquarium and explores Historic Yellow Springs.
