REMINDER: musical books with Tom DiNardo and Bob Cafaro WEDNESDAY!!

Join us at the P&P WEDNESDAY at 8 p.m. for a night of new musical books from longtime Daily News arts writer Tom DiNardo and Philadelphia Orchestra cellist Bob Cafaro. The authors will have books for sale and will autograph them as well.

DiNardo’s books both cover the thriving performing scene in Philadelphia.

“Listening To Musicians—40 Years of the Philadelphia Orchestra” features interviews with music directors Muti, Sawallisch, Eschenbach, Dutoit and, now, Nezet-Seguin. Included are insights from many of the guest conductors, soloists and composers and, most importantly, the Orchestra’s musicians on what it’s like to play at this exalted level, with a running commentary on the slow evolution of the Kimmel Center.

“Performers Tell Their Stories: 40 Years Inside the Arts” covers everything else: interviews with jazz and classical performers, opera singers like Luciano Pavarotti and Renee Fleming, conductors, ballet dancers and artists like Andrea Bocelli and Lang Lang. There are also sections on producing an opera and the creation of film music. The framework of this book is the colorful milieu of the newspaper business and its idiosyncratic characters, told from a perennial freelancer’s point of view.

Cafaro, meanwhile, will discuss his remarkable personal journey in his book “When The Music Stopped: My Battle and Victory against MS.” Bob was diagnosed with incurable multiple sclerosis, decided he simply wasn’t going to accept it, and cured himself through exercise, diet and life style changes. It’s an amazing story (covered already by Channel 10), and Bob is still playing at a high level, completely cured. His tips about health and how he did it are valuable even for all of us without such a dire need to change our way of living.

We’ll sample four wines that could well be affected — for better or worse — by climate change. It will feature a mix of wines from areas around the globe where the climate shift will challenge winemakers’ skills and experience and may even make them switch grapes and methods.

Don’t miss out — sign up at the bar or call the club, 215-731-9909, today!

Cost is $30 and includes appetizers.
