Terrance McKnight takes you on a special musical travelogue, so put on your finest duds and some comfortable shoes as we travel to the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a sold-out concert with world renowned violinist Hilary Hahn and singer-songwriter Josh Ritter.

Afterwards, follow Terrance to the downtown club Drom for the after-party celebrating the release of Hahn's new CD of Sibelius and Schoenberg Violin Concertos. Find out what's behind this uncommon musical pairing from both artists and weigh in with your own dream combos as Terrance takes you this unique, intimately guided tour.
