May 8, 2014

On this week’s edition of Need to Know Rochester both sides of the Supreme Court’s prayer case come to the table to discuss the details of the ruling, what the Supreme Court didn’t include in its decision, and what’s next for the Town of Greece. Don’t miss the conversation with one of the plaintiffs in the case, Linda Stephens, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich and Nazareth College professor Timothy Kneeland.

Also on the show – a behind-the-scenes look at the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra prepping for its Carnegie Hall performance this week. The RPO was invited to perform for the Spring for Music Festival. Guest RPO conductor, Michael Christie, calls the event the Olympics of symphonic music.

And before you head out to Rochester’s famed Lilac Festival, we have a conversation with “Doc Lilac.” He shares the latest on the flower of spring.
