Keep an eye out for this...



Yes, the Rose Hall concert recorded last year in New York City is being released on DVD. According to joshgroban.com it will released on June 2nd, and will air on PBS on June 9th. Don't you just love the cover...

I'm very, very excited about this. I believe that Josh did the version of You Are Loved that has the 'alternate' ending (like the performance @ the Bridge School Benefit - see below)

Mr Groban goes to Washington (Again)...



What an honor - Josh participated in the 22nd Annual Arts Advocacy Day in Washington DC. He testified in front of the House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing "The Arts = Jobs".

Josh reflected on the importance of his experience at LACHSA which focused on the arts and encouraged its students to explore theatre and dramatic arts; and his time at Interlochen Arts Camp.





"So much more is needed to ensure that my story is a possibility for millions of our fellow Americans, but more importantly, that we continue to fund the arts so that we maintain our cultural soul."
Josh Groban - House of Representatives Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing "The Arts = Jobs", Washington DC, 31 March 2009.

You can read Josh's testimony here.

Fingers crossed that Josh blogs about this soon!!!
