Tune in for a nightly mix that spans the centuries.
- Nimet Habachy
This week, from the Palladium at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Ind., you'll hear a 16-year-old perform music by the “Czar of Cellists," a young harpist share what life is like on her Indiana farm and four teenagers describe the very different ways their parents got them through times when they wanted to quit music. Also, special guest Michael Feinstein, renowned interpreter of the Great American Songbook, sings Gershwin accompanied by From the Top’s young musicians.
Many composers used dances in their music, even though they didn’t intend for anyone to actually dance to these pieces. This week on Classics for Kids, hear some minuets, marches and waltzes that turn up in classical compositions.
Beverly Sills Award-winner Susanna Phillips stars in the title role, Giuseppe Filianoti is Edgardo and Brian Mulligan is Enrico in this opera based on a popular novel by Sir Walter Scott.
