Some especially interesting articles in the paper this weekend.

Item: "Doctor in the House" profiles Dr. Jon Hallberg, a physician who works with several arts groups, including the Minnesota Orchestra, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Guthrie Theater. Dr. Hallberg is also a regular commentator on Minnesota Public Radio News.

Item: The Guthrie Theater is highlighted in a Sunday New York Times profile of important regional theater companies.

Item: Grammy winning jazz composer (and Minnesota native) Maria Schneider talks about her new piece for Dawn Upshaw and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
