Andrew Patner is an author, journalist and arts critic in Chicago who has supported our work for some time. Today he sends this message about the PBS documentary A Harpist’s Legacy - Ann Hobson Pilot and the Sound of Change:

“Dear Bill,
I thought that you and your readers might want to know that the Ann Hobson Pilot documentary airs tonight from 5:30 to 6 p.m. CDT on Chicago's PBS affiliate WTTW-Channel 11.

“Ann will also be soloist in the Chicago and Chicago area premieres of 'her' John Williams concerto with the Chicago Sinfonietta and its new music director Mei-Ann Chen on Sep. 24 in Naperville, Ill., and Sep. 26 at Orchestra Hall in Chicago.

Thanks as ever for all that you do!
