Jim Cotter speaks with organist Paul Jacobs who performs at the Kimmel Center on May 8, 2010.

We listen to a compilation of Notes From The Road reports filed by Susan Lewis on the China leg of the Philadelphia Orchestra's Asia tour.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns travels to rural China to witness performances by Philadelphia Orchestra musicians for survivors of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake.

And we listen again to an interview with Nelly Berman. The grand final of a new competition for young classical musicians she created takes place on Saturday afternoon.
