from the oceans to the mountains
When classical musicians leave their tuxes at home and meet up with friends to play music in beautiful surroundings, it creates an altered universe.
We capture that sense of place — the natural beauty, the excitement of the music, the fun – in this series of broadcasts from America’s great music festivals. Pianist Orli Shaham brings you top performances by dynamic international musicians in these two-hour programs.
There are 26 festivals in the series, and in 2012, we focus on music festivals of the East Coast. Each festival has a page with music, extra features, bios, links, and more. Check the station page or your local station’s website to find the broadcast day/time in your area. If the shows don’t air on your station, call them and ask them to carry our show – it’s free! Or listen online, on-demand. Enjoy!
