This week, we're trying to beat the summer heat with a cool spring repeat from back in April of 2011 at The Town Hall in New York City. Sarah Jarosz sings "Come Around," Tom Rush plays "Drivin' Wheel," Shai Wosner performs Schubert's "Impromptu Op. 90 No. 2," and Sutton Foster and Colin Donnell stop by for "You're the Top" from Anything Goes. Plus: tales of getting around NYC by subway and by bicycle, and in Lake Wobegon, Lyle watches over a tundra swan that has decided to be a dog.

Classical MPR's broadcast of Metropolitan Opera live will briefly pre-empt the start of A Prairie Home Companion on January 5, March 2 and May 11. For the complete broadcast, join MPR News on Sunday at 11 a.m.
