Listen today: Orchestra practice

Before he jumped into the lengthy process of composing a symphony, Brahms wanted to get some practice writing for an orchestra. He found a versatile melody and wrote a set of variations on it, which we'll enjoy during our music, along with Randall Thompson's setting of Robert Frost's poem Choose Something Like a Star. 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.
