British soldiers serving overseas during World War 1 were in desperate need of supplies, so concerts were organized to raise money for them. During our music today we'll hear a ballet Elgar wrote for one of these "Concerts at the Front." Our music also includes Brahms' Violin Sonata No. 1. Tune in at 9 am 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.
