Jim Cotter speaks with Philadelphia Singers Music Director David Hayes ahead of the group's revival of Randall Thompson's under-appreciated Requiem.

Susan Lewis considers George Gershwin, as both the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Orchestra perform one of the great 20th-century master's signature works, Rhapsody in Blue.

We take a walk through the Hawaii-themed 2012 Philadelphia Flower Show with Pennsylvania Horticultural Society President Drew Becher.
