Classical Music Highlight: Handel Plays His Hits


In order to keep audiences from getting too bored during the intermissions of his oratorios, Handel wrote concertos with melodies he knew listeners would recognize.  During our morning music program we'll hear a concerto that includes melodies from Messiah.  Tune in at 9:00 on 91.1 or 107.5FM or our music stream.
