Powerful pair

With this posting, I try to impart some of the flavor of my fascinating chat last week with pianist Ric Louchard and soprano Yolanda Rhodes. During our interview for this week's cover story, the duo performed three songs: "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child," an aria from Catalani's "La Wally," and "Summertime."

Through the magic of video, you can see some of the moments from this impromptu performance. You can also experience camera flashes courtesy of Weekly photographer Norbert von der Groeben (jiggly video courtesy of me). Or maybe it was lightning from the storm outside. Either way, good show all around.
