New York Philharmonic in Pyongyang

The 106 member New York Philharmonic orchestra is in North Korea to become the first major U.S. orchestra to perform in that isolated Communist nation. The concert on Tuesday, 26 February will be telecast internationally and on state-run radio and television. The historic trip is not without its critics. Listen here for an NPR interview.
