Linda Cohen from New York City

After getting a new Bose machine and having a radio for the first time in many years (25)..I have begun listening to WQXR and have fallen in love with classical music. Though my knowledge is slim, I would love to learn more and hear more...can you please recommend a music appreciation program, perhaps at Lincoln Center or Carnegie Hall? Where can I learn more about classical music? Thanks! Linda Cohen
