WFMT broadcast - Feb. 10 at 12:15pm (Central Time Zone)

We had the great fortune to be in Chicago last week during their Groundhog Day blizzard! Despite nearly two feet of snow in 24 hours, 50 mph gusting winds, thunder snow(!), and grim weather predictions, our concert for the Dame Myra Hess series at the Chicago Cultural Center went on as planned. We had a small but enthusiastic audience who braved the elements to come, and now the performance will be broadcast on Chicago's WFMT tomorrow at 12:15pm (Central Time). We performed one of my favorite pieces, Beethoven's "Archduke" Trio in B flat Major, Op. 97.

Illinois fans can tune to 98.7, or everyone can listen to the streaming broadcast online at

A small but enthusiastic audience? Chicago concert goers must be wimps! If you had played that program in Boston, you would have had a standing room only crowd even if a storm had dropped three feet of snow and winds were howling at 85 miles per hour!

Your fan,

Chicago seems to be a fantastic market for classical music, perhaps because of its centralized mid-west location. It would be interesting to make a compare & contrast of audiences in various markets across America and overseas--aside from just New York or Boston. The weather is just an 'act of God'-)/...

Wow. That's quite a photo post storm. Glad you made it through all the weather OK.
