Mario's Boston concert with Hayley Westenra is now playing on PBS in certain areas of the US, mainly the west coast right now. There is a wonderful short video with samples of the songs from 'Beautiful Things' on YouTube. It's with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Hayley looks beautiful in her duet with Mario
Mario's concert on PBS has been playing in different parts of the US since November. From March 1-15, it will be on many new PBS stations, including many in the Chicago area and the southeast regions of the country. Check your local PBS station for information.

Mario's concert was on my PBS station tonight. The number one reason to buy the DVD from PBS is to be able to see the entire DVD. They cut 11 songs from the album 'Beautiful Things' in order to make time for their donation drive. The entire DVD is so fantastic, it's a shame to not see it in it's entirety.
If you live in northern New York state, Vermont, or Montreal, Canada you can view Mario on www.mountainlake.org. He will be in the studio being interviewed during pledge intermissions. Dates of concert airings are: Friday 15 8:00 PM, Saturday 16 9:00 PM and 12:30 AM. Sunday 17 at 10:30 PM and Monday 18 at 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
