PT Turns 25

In January of 1987, a new arts show hit the public radio airwaves for the first time. It was called Performance Today. A number of talented hosts and staffers have worked on the show in the intervening years. But the thing that has stayed during that time has been the immediacy of the show. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma calls it the "I was there" feeling you get from Performance Today. Yo-Yo Ma, guitarist Jason Vieaux, and the Parker Quartet all help us celebrate 25 years of Performance Today.
