LIAISONS' 2012-13 nationwide tour has made stops in San Francisco, New York City, Fort Worth, and Hudson Opera House, to name a few, and will continue throughout 2014. A full recording of the project is also underway, produced by Judith Sherman, for release in 2015. Tickets are $19-$42. To purchase, contact Mondavi Arts at 530-754-2787 or visit mondaviarts.org.
