Composer and conductor Rob Kapilow has a kindred spirit: the irrepressible promoter of that titular culinary dish in Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs and Ham." Kapilow's mission is giving people a taste of classical music. The Seuss book "is a parable about prejudice," Kapilow says. "It represents all those things that we're sure we're not going to like before we try them. It's the perfect metaphor for classical music in America." In the lively "What Makes It Great?"
