“Veteran’s Special House Project, Part 3”

THIS OLD HOUSE partners with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) to build a house for an Army veteran and his family. A specially adapted home for SSG Matt DeWitt, whose injuries in Iraq resulted in the amputation of both arms, will be life-changing. Kevin meets HFOT community outreach coordinator Chris Mitchell, who explains why community involvement is important. More than 150 local volunteers are laying down the sod, mulching the beds and planting. At the end of a long journey, the DeWitts move into their new home. On ASK THIS OLD HOUSE, Richard travels to Pittsburgh to install a thermostat that interfaces with a smart phone to save energy and money. Ross Trethewey walks Kevin through the installation of a photovoltaic solar array on the barn.

“Boston Symphony Orchestra: Andris Nelsons Inaugural Concert”

This wide-ranging, one-night-only event celebrates the start of BSO music director Andris Nelsons’ tenure as the 15th music director of the orchestra and features two of the conductor’s close colleagues, the acclaimed Latvian soprano Kristine Opolais and the internationally acclaimed German tenor Jonas Kaufmann. Each sings selections from the Wagnerian and Italian verismo repertoires, they then join forces for a powerful duet from Puccini’s Manon Lescaut. The concert opens with Wagner’s TannhÅ user Overture — the work that first inspired a five-year-old Nelsons to a life in music — and closes with Respighi’s spectacular orchestral showcase, Pines of Rome.
