All week long, we've been telling tall tales from the concert hall with our Concert Hall Curveballs series. Today, we stop by Verizon Hall in Philadelphia to hear about a mishap involving cellist Yo-Yo Ma and a performance of the Beethoven Triple Concerto. And we've got Dame Joan Sutherland on the phone to talk about her reaction to an unusual concert disruption.
