During rehearsals for his string Octet, Mendelsssohn coached the handful of musicians to play as if they were a whole orchestra.  You can enjoy this gutsy work during our evening music program beginning at 8 pm on 91.1 and 107.5 FM or our music stream. 

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
