First Fridays: Ensemble HD

Ensemble HD's mission is to bring classical music to a wide audience, and what better place to do that than at the Happy Dog? That's where they got their name, and today they brought the show to the KeyBank Studio, hosted by Angela Mitchell. In this episode of First Fridays, they played selections from a recent program of theirs called "Cabaret: Between Two World Wars."
