We were thrilled to work this week with KQED Radio News Producer Nina Thorsen, who's helped with The Do List for nearly as long as the show has been on the air. We talk about the pairing of a teacher and his brilliant former student in a piano recital for four hands, a chance to sample five new operas by West Coast Composers, the "gypsy punk" of Gogol Bordello and more. Hope you like it.

Feb. 27: The brilliant pianist Daniil Trifonov and his mentor, Sergei Babayan, team up for a piano recital.

Feb. 23-25: Choreographer Robert Moses tells stories in dance about foster youth and street musicians in Bootstrap Tales.

Feb. 24-25: A rare chance to see excerpts of five brand new operas by West Coast composers at West Edge's Snapshot.

Feb. 27-March 11: Cinequest brings glamour (Travolta, Macy, MacDowell, and Cage) and substance to the South Bay.
