The premiere live performance of the recorded work Pete Townshend calls "unnervingly exciting." Petra Haden revisits the classic Who album with an all female a cappella choir featuring Haden and Dawn Frinta, Sandy Howell, Delphine Robertson, Tanya Haden, Amanda Mullins, Tammy Hart, Cindy O'Connor, Justine Kragen and Carla Commagere.

Plus renowned contemporary artist and musician Stephen Prina returns to Los Angeles for a solo, acoustic performance of original songs and — according to him — "contemporary standards."
