This week: we're live from the Filene Center at the Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts in Vienna, Virginia. Our future host Chris Thile joins us with his mandolin and a bag of sharp songs; Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks head down from New York City for a blast of big-band jazz; and Heather Masse travels from even farther north in New York, the state, to sing songs that will start your Memorial Day weekend off right. Plus: our Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman; pianist and music director Rich Dworsky and the band (drummer Bernie Dresel, Larry Kohut on bass, Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle duties, and the many guitars of Chris Siebold); and an update from the host on the latest News from Lake Wobegon.

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.
