This show is no longer airing. You can access archives online.

On Wings of Song began in 1995 as a vocal recital series and later became radio broadcasts. The concerts further the vocal recital art form and give young singers the opportunity to showcase their work. Legendary mezzo-soprano, Marilyn Horne  and WQXR’s Elliott Forrest  co-host an hour that’s part concert, part master-class and part reminiscence. The concerts were recorded live at Christ & St. Stephen’s Church in New York City.
