This year Classical 101 marks the holiday season with a variety of specials and daily local selections from our hosts.

Thanksgiving sees the return of some favorites: ”Every Good Thing” and “Giving Thanks” from American Public Media and “Autumn Wonders” from our weekly local series “The American Sound.”

We’ll be carrying special music for Hanukkah on December 17th at 4 pm and December 22 at 8 pm.

The week leading up to Christmas will feature a holiday special each night at 8 pm in addition to the festive and lovely selections played by our hosts throughout the day. Some annual favorites include A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College, Cambridge, the traditional St. Olaf Christmas Festival, and A Chanticleer Christmas.

Plus the perennial favorite “New Year’s Day from Vienna.”

Let the music on Classical 101 provide the perfect soundtrack for your holiday season.

And don't forget the check out the great local performances this holiday season.
