Tonight we'll hear how Rodio Shchedrin adapted Bizet's opera Carmen into a ballet for his wife, who wanted to dance the tragic role of the heroine. We'll also enjoy a piano concerto Michael Tippett wrote in tribute to Beethoven. Tune in at 8 pm on 91.1 and 107.5 FM and 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.
