Friday, November 25 at 9 PM (check local listings)

The pianist Lang Lang has been hailed as one of the greatest classical performers of our time - an artist whose virtuosity and passion are matched by his consummate sense of showmanship. Now he’s created this love letter to the city he considers his adoptive home, joined by special guests Andra Day, Kurt Elling, Lisa Fischer, Sean Jones, Lindsey Stirling, Suzanne Vega and Rufus Wainwright. It’s the complex portrait of a city in transition, delivered in words and music by artists who have been touched by its unsettling magic.
