Musicians have certain nightclubs and concert halls where they love to play. Sometimes it’s the look, the feel and the history. But what’s even more essential is the sound. WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia finds out more in this week’s “Shuffle.”

The Cleveland Orchestra's concertmaster, William Preucil, is no longer a teacher at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Preucil resigned this weekend, two days after the Washington Post published a story detailing sexual assault allegations against him. 

Preucil tendered his resignation from the music school one day after the Cleveland Orchestra suspended him pending an investigation.
