Alice Tully Hall

February 26, 2009

Alice gets a face lift

She's over 40 now, and her age was beginning to show. So Alice got a face lift recently. It took two years and about $160 million, but the results are smashing. Today we'll visit the newly-renovated Alice Tully Hall in New York City to hear last Sunday's grand re-opening concert. We'll hear from Hesperion XXI and the Juilliard Orchestra, under the direction of David Robertson.
