Digital broadcast

WGBH was born in 1951 with a live radio broadcast from Boston’s Symphony Hall. And we’ve been offering a front-row seat to the best the arts have to offer ever since. It’s only fitting that this month we return to the venerable Huntington Avenue stage with a new special showcasing trumpet superstar Chris Botti and a roster of A-list artists, Yo-Yo Ma to Sting. Chris is a great friend of WGBH and public media and, as you know well, a frequent guest in our studios; the Grammy winner will join us again on Monday, March 2 when Chris Botti in Boston airs (see page 7). Music, drama, dance, literature, film. The arts captivate and inspire us. They strengthen our connections with others. They help us, individually and collectively, ponder what might be possible. WGBH offers free admission to the arts on air and online 365 days a year—with lots to choose from this month, as you’ll see in these pages: Little Dorrit on Masterpiece Classic’s The Tales of Charles Dickens, Sir Ian McKellen’s star turn as Shakespeare’s King Lear, a live performance by the Boston Chamber Music Society from our Fraser Performance Studio. And that’s just for starters. Using media to promote the arts and build audiences for the wealth of creativity beyond our Brighton doors is a WGBH cornerstone. In that spirit, we are proud to partner with ArtsBoston—another local organization committed to making the arts accessible to diverse audiences—on the launch of a new website designed to support and promote the arts in and around the region. At artsboston.org, you’ll find all you need to know about the local arts scene, including a robust entertainment calendar and access to savings on performances across Boston. In uncertain times, we value all the more the inspiration the arts can provide. Thank you for helping WGBH remain a vibrant, democratic force for keeping the arts in all of our lives.

The lively back-and-forth touches on the importance of developing global competencies, the nation’s growing Latino dropout rate and the often overlooked talents and opportunities that Latino children bring to classrooms across the US. Find out more at wgbh.org/oneonone.

Condition Critical More than 2.5 million Americans lost their jobs last year—and their health care insurance. As the economy continues to spiral and a new administration promises to deliver comprehensive health care reform, Frontline correspondent T.R. Reid investigates the failures and future of the private insurance industry. Examining the best and worst of US health care by telling the gripping and sometimes tragic stories of ordinary Americans, this new film lays bare the flaws in our system and examines the critical choices Americans face. Explore the issue at wgbh.org/frontline.
