After a year's pause, the Charles Ives Music Festival returns this summer with a season inspired by The Promise of Living from Aaron Copland's The Tender Land.  Kate Remington talks with Artistic Director and composer Paul Frucht about the Festival, which opens with a concert titled Joy on Saturday, July 31, at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut. 

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