Jean Sibelius

As fragments of an unfinished masterwork by Jean Sibelius come to light, David Patrick Stearns considers whether or not we're about to hear a new Sibelius symphony - more than half a century after the death of the great Finish composer.

Susan Lewis explores the best of times and the worst of times in the life of Charles Dickens. Celebrations of the 200th birthday of the great Victorian-era English novelist are taking place around the region and the world.

As the Kimmel Center celebrates its 10th birthday, Jim Cotter speaks with Ann Ewers, the president of the Philadelphia performing arts center.
