Update - November 20, 2013
With regret, MTPR is cancelling the “Evening with Montana Public Radio” event scheduled for this Sunday, November 24th at the Wilma Theater in Missoula.
Our featured headliner, NPR’s Susan Stamberg, is unexpectedly unable to travel to Missoula this weekend. Ms. Stamberg is very disappointed and has asked that we let all the MTPR listeners know that she really wishes she could be here. She sends her best wishes for the station and all MTPR supporters.
MTPR extends thanks to Pete Fromm and Philip Aaberg for their understanding. MTPR will regroup and hopes to plan another event in the new year.
GrizTix will be handling all ticket refunds.
If you purchased with a credit card, GrizTix will issue a full refund of the ticket and fees.

NPR's Susan Stamberg, one of the founding "mothers" of the NPR service. Stamberg was the first womanto anchor a national nightly newscast (All Things Considered), the founding host of Weekend Edition Sunday and is now an NPR special correspondent filing arts and culture stories from around the globe.
Author Pete Fromm will give special preview reading from his new novel, If Not For This, to be published in August 2014.
Fromm is a four time winner of the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Literary Award for his novels As Cool As I Am and How All This Started, a story collection, Dry Rain, and the memoir, Indian Creek Chronicles.
Composer Philip Aaberg writes music that connects to the sweeping landscape of Montana and the West. He received Grammy nominations for his 2002 album Live From Montana, and his 2008 soundtrack for the MontanaPBS documentary "Class C: The Only Game in Town".
"He is a true composer, as well as a great interpreter," says fellow pianist George Winston. "His music so deeply captures the essence of Montana, and yet it is so universal."
