3 Reasons to LOVE PBS

1. Mendez & McNab
I turned on PBS last night and saw an amazing show called "Concierto Para Mendez" - a celebration of legendary trumpeter Rafael Mendez. If you don't know who that is, check out the video below, or find this program on TV.

Malcomb McNab, a legendary trumpeter in his own right, performs Rafael's solos in this "Concierto".

I believe it's being re-broadcast at various times this week, so check your local listings.

Here's a link...

2. MTT & SFS

Also on PBS this week is "Keeping Score", featuring Michael Tilson Thomas & the San Francisco Symphony. MTT goes into great detail about certain works of music (Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique is this week) and it's by far one of my favorite shows. Check it out!

3. Dudamel & LA Phil
"I want more!" you say? - The inaugural concert of conductor Gustavo Dudamel with the LA Phil is on next week!
