Our second season of the Talking Music series features established musicians and composers as well as the new guard. From Broadway legend Barbara Cook, who will perform and reminisce, Amy Tan, who will discuss the process of translating a novel into an opera, to the haunting, passionate voice of Neko Case and John Darnielle's storytelling lyrics, the series presents a diversity of styles and individual visions. This season of Talking Music will also feature experimental performance artist and composer Laurie Anderson, conductor and composer Michael Tilson Thomas, indie rocker and leader of Okkervil River, Will Sheff, composer Stewart Wallace, and Stephen Merritt, front man of The Magnetic Fields.
