Honoring Marilyn Horne

Earlier this year, there was a big birthday celebration for Marilyn Horne, in the form of a concert which we'll be bringing you tonight.

Now please note that this isn't a recital by Marilyn Horne. Rather, some of the brightest names in opera (Dmitri Hvorostovsky, Susan Graham, Thomas Hampson, Piotr Beczala, etc.) got together to perform in her honor. Here's a little hint of what you'll hear, with Dolora Zajick in an aria from St-Saens's "Samson and Delilah" (different performance, same artist and music).

Join Fred Child tonight at 8 for all the festivities.
