Entertainment icon Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy career took off after his first appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson in 1981. Eight years later, he teamed up with fellow comedian Larry David to create what was to become the most successful comedy series in the history of television: Seinfeld. The show ran on NBC for nine seasons, winning numerous Emmy, Golden Globe and People’s Choice awards, and was named the greatest television show of all time in 2009 by TV Guide, and in 2012 was identified as the best sitcom ever in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll.

Angèle Dubeau & La Pietà
Canadian violinist Angèle Dubeau, who battled breast cancer in 2013, said that recording the album Blanc (White), provided “purity and serenity” as she healed. Two years later, she and La Pietà, an all-female string ensemble that she founded in 1997, are performing selections from Blanc, including music by composers Dave Brubeck, Cat Stevens, Osvaldo Golijov and Mark O’Connor, along with other classical and contemporary fare.
