Diana, A Celebration, the touring exhibit of all things Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, is now open at the Cincinnati Museum Center.

The official dress handlers, Nick Grossmark and Graeme Murton, talk by phone with our Jim Stump to discuss the exhibit, the dress, and the continued interest in the late Princess.

Edward Roach is a historian at the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historical Park and author of The Wright Company: From Invention to Industry, which details Orville and Wilbur’s business side of building and selling airplanes. The author talks with our Lloyd Bryant about the post-Kitty Hawk business world of the Wright Brothers.

Possibly the most significant American oratorio of the late 20th century, John Adams’ “El Nino” will be performed by the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Musics Philharmonia, Chamber Choir, Chorale and Cincinnati Children’s Choir on March 2.
