Carnegie Hall with Ken Levigne

It is easy to become a cynic in this hard world especially as a classical musician. After yesterday's historic US presidential event, one might be inspired to pay attention to their dreams. This week, Canadian tenor Ken Lavigne is doing just that. He has hired the New York Pops to accompany him at the famed Carnegie Hall and makes his debut there on Thursday. Writing his own ticket has cost him close to $200,000 but what a story!

Check out his story, his singing and his concert (if you are in NYC this week!).

(and in a "where's waldo" moment, can you find Canadian opera singer Maria Lambroula Pappas in the video clip?)
