The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
Jazz musician Horace Silver passed away Wednesday at 85; Dee Perry listens back on a chat with him on Sound of Applause. Also, in light of baseball player Omar Vizquel's upcoming induction into the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame, we revisit when he shared how he balances his love for baseball and painting. Plus, Dan Polletta talks to fiddler Natalie MacMaster about how she balances her roles as musician and mother.
