Dee Perry speaks with Pink Martini's Thomas Lauderdale and NPR's Ari Shapiro about their holiday collaboration as they perform live in our Key Bank studio before their concerts this week at Severance Hall with The Cleveland Orchestra. Plus, local piano man Mike Petrone and his friends share holiday carols prior to their performances at Johnny's Downtown. And we preview a new dance piece that retells the birth of Jesus onstage at PlayhouseSquare - A Son is Given.
