Sculptor Gelah Penn, in the second part of a studio visit, talks about her interest in literature and how that relates to her sculpture, the transition between her earlier work and what she is doing now, her creative process, and her thoughts about the future of sculpture.

Opera singer Jon Morrell discusses his development as a singer, plus excerpts from his performances as Otello in Verdi's Otello, and Samson in Saint-Saëns' Samson et Delila. Plus his latest project, the Garage at Chatham, an updated version of the literary and musical salon, a feature of 17th and 18th cultural life.

And Thomas Carlo Bo, a Chatham-based conductor and composer, speaks with Jon Di Fiore, a composer, and musician about reworking Chopin and Ravel as jazz and hear one of Di Fiore's Chopin-related pieces. Di Fiore also talks about how he creates music and the Jon Di Fiore Trio.
