2005 in Review

We'll take a look back at the past year in the arts in our region and bring you the highlights of news and events, and the people who made them happen. And what a year it's been. Together we've witnessed great performances and exhibitions and rediscovered so many great perennial treasures. We weren't just here, but also overseas, traveling with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Pennsylvania Ballet as they brought their art to new audiences in Asia and the UK and in Spain where we went on a voyage of discovery into the life of Salvador Dali.
