Miles Hoffman is a familiar voice for NPR classical music fans.  He's been a longtime regular on NPR's "Morning Edition" and "Performance Today," and literally wrote the book on classical music listening ("The NPR Classical Music Companion: An Essential Guide for Enlightened Listening").  He brings his viola skills to Las Vegas - he's performing Walton's Viola Concerto with the Las Vegas Philharmonic on Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. at UNLV's Artemus Ham Hall.  Join us for a discussion with Miles Hoffman and LV Phil conductor David Itkin.
 
GUESTS

    COMMENTS:
    This was the best segment of the morning. Laughs and education about "serious" music. I think it would be great if M. Hoffman was on SON everytime he is in town.
