Yannick Nezet-Seguin--Ancient Rome Exhibition--Wicked Philadelphia, Continued

3320842-1572448932.jpg

Jim Cotter speaks with Yannick Nezet-Seguin - the new music director of the Philadelphia Orchestra - and gets reaction to his appointment from orchestra musicians and management.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's David Patrick Stearns looks back to Yannick's first visit to Philadelphia in 2008.

Susan Lewis takes us to Ancient Rome. The latest exhibition at the National Constitution Center examines how the classical influence helped shape America.

And as part of Wicked Philadelphia, our continuing series about little-remembered events in local history, Tom Keels explores how the City of Brotherly Love was a hotbed for the "world's oldest profession" during the 18th and 19th centuries.
