Stan Douglas Hors-champs, 1992, from 'Blues For Smoke' at The Whitney

In This Episode: If you’ve been keeping an eye on the art scene in New York, you may have noticed that there’s a lot of music in the city’s museums. We look at how institutions from The Whitney to the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the New Museum are filling their galleries with the sound of music.

Plus: Newfangled baseball statistics like “on-base plus slugging” or “ultimate zone rating” were the subject of the bestselling book and film Moneyball. Now, a number crunching company is putting stats to work in the music biz. We hear about how they might even predict the next big thing.  

And: We take you on a Blind Date with rising mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard.
