Billy McLaughlin: Starry Night With Orchestra Nova

Billy McLaughlin and Orchestra Nova conducted by Jung-Ho Pak filmed a new program called Starry Night for KPBS Public Television San Diego in early January. The program will debut on KPBS in San Diego on March 18th with live appearances by Billy and Jung-Ho. The music and the story behind it will inspire you to never give up on your dreams and to keep reaching for the stars. Starry Night will be made available to PBS stations across the nation in June and Billy anticipates visiting as many stations as possible with a fall concert schedule that would include cities that broadcast the show.
