For those of you who rode The 20th Century Limited last Friday and heard the answer to: "What do Igor Stravinsky and Wynton Marsalis have in common?", I promised a photo of the violin from a production of the Stravinsky work. Here are two - the violin dances and the soldier with his violin.

These pictures were taken about 30 years ago at a joint production by the Hartford Ballet and the Hartford Chamber Orchestra. (I was on the orchestra's board at the time.) I no longer know who the dancers are; if anyone recognizes them, please let me know either through FB or at the20thcentur[email protected].

I love trains. This is one that I actually rode from Milwaukee to Chicago in the 1950s & early 1960s. Know I rode it because there were only two Electroliners and I rode both. This photo was taken in 2000 as it was being restored at the IRM in Rockford, IL.

Take today's trip down the tracks and into the world of contemporary classical music out of the station #WWUH for a truly unusual ride.

Usually we do contemporary takes on mainstream classical music (jazz, rock, new age etc.), but only full interpretations of a work. Today we depart from that destination and take a spur line into the world of pop music based on themes from mainstream classical music. The Crewcuts, Apollo and possibly the Supremes, among others, ride the rails with us today!
