The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
As the Chautauqua Opera stages The Ballad of Baby Doe, Dan Polletta speaks with the show's director. Plus, we listen back on Dee Perry's conversation with Joan Jett in time for her appearance tonight at AP Music Awards and we share a performance by electric violinist Tracy Silverman in the Key Bank Studio.
