Providence, R.I. – The Newport Music Festival, a multi-week event featuring some of the world's best music played in some of its best mansions, is beginning its 42nd season on Friday. But this summer, something-- or rather someone--will be missing. The festival's charismatic leader for the past 35 years, Mark Malkovich III, died last month. Festival organizers say his passing leaves a void but that the show will go on. WRNI's Bill Gale has our story.
