Classical 101

Weekly Highlights: Oct. 16th - 22nd

A portrait of American composer William Grant Still by Carl Van Vechten.

Whether you're in the mood for some Handel, or feeling more like Stravinsky's Firebird would light up your day, Classical 101 has something for everyone each week. Daily programming such as The Amadeus Deli provide the staples— the meat and potatoes of Classical repertoire— while special evening shows such as Fretworks and The American Sound add a little spice to the musical palette.
