Ray Chen, Sir George Martin and Great Lakes Theater Dee Perry welcomes internationally-acclaimed violinist Ray Chen to share the story of his Stradivarius violin prior to his performance tomorrow night at The Cleveland Museum of Art. Plus we share an interview with legendary record producer Sir George Martin as we look back on the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first trip to The United States. And we hear how seven local playwrights are stage Shakespeare's Seven Ages of Man for Great Lakes Theater.

Additional Information

Sir George Martin was the longtime producer for The Beatles.
