Six high school choruses from New York City are set to perform this weekend at Carnegie Hall with conductor Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as part of an outreach project called "Too Hot to Handel." In the year-long program, the students sing Handel's music, and, with the aid of professional composers, create their own classical pieces based on major works.

For this week's Arts File, Kerry Nolan talks to Dr. Aaron Flagg, the dean of the University of Hartford's Hartt School and former director of educational outreach at the Julliard school. Marin Alsop and Bayside High School Choir Director Joe Piccirillo also weigh in.

Guests:

Marin Alsop, Dr. Aaron Flagg and Joe Piccirillo
