With over 25 albums, Grammy Award-winning guitarist Sharon Isbin has covered a lot of ground. This past March, she released a new album for SONY, called "Journey to the New World." A musical progression from 16th century Britain to America, the CD includes everything from John Dowland lute music to the Joan Baez Suite, a work Isbin commissioned from composer John Duarte in 2002. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton talks with Ms. Isbin about this latest offering, and includes samples of music from the new CD.

Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.Watch now →
