New York Philharmonic  : Asia 2008This is good news that my father relayed to me. Having the New York Philharmonic perform in Pyongyang will hopefully thaw relationships between North Korea and the United States at least a little bit and show a beautiful side of American culture.

This concert will be shown on PBS in New York. Hopefully it will be shown out here in California but so far I don’t see it on the TV schedule.
