Kate Remington

Music Director, Classical music program host

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington received a degree in piano performance and mass communication from the University of Wisconsin. Her first radio position was with Wisconsin Public Radio, which included a wildly successful request program on Saturday mornings. She then moved to Chicago to join the fledgling nationally-distributed, Beethoven Satellite Network, originating from WFMT. Then Kate set out for Vermont Public Radio, to become the chief announcer there. In Vermont Kate met her husband, Dick Roberts, and that's where their son, Sam was born.  Kate and her family relocated to Fairfield to join WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.

When she's not on the air, Kate can usually be found at a stable in Monroe, CT, where she trains her horse, Tonka, in dressage.

Richard Strauss was feeling slighted by critics of his music, so he created a fantasy and cast himself as the triumphant main character. We'll enjoy A Hero's Life tonight.

Fall arrives tomorrow, and we'll celebrate with Autumn from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, "recomposed" by Max Richter, featuring violinist Daniel Hope.

Tonight Lynn Harrell is the soloist in Dvorak's Cello Concerto, which was admired at its premiere by all his contemporaries, including Brahms.

Leopold Stokowski was never satisfied that orchestrations of Mussorgsky's opera Boris Godunov were true to the composer's vision, so he created his own Symphonic Synthesis of the opera. We'll enjoy it today.

Eric Whittacre's choral music has become a worldwide phenomenon. Hear why tonight as we enjoy his evocative Water Night.
