This year is the fifth anniversary of the week-long Charles Ives Concert Series in Danbury, Connecticut. Taking inspiration from its namesake, the Ives Concert Series presents contemporary music as well as traditional works all performed by emerging and established musicians and composers. Kate Remington talked with the series' founder and artistic director, Paul Frucht, about this season, which begins on August 4. 

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