Save the Date: Classical Marathon celebrates centuries of music December 4 – 10
Classical music springs directly from our deepest human emotions. Through all the seasons, WTJU is your classical companion for our community. It amplifies your joy on good days brings comfort on stressful days. It’s your go-to source for music that moves you.
Please join us December 4th through 10th for WTJU’s 2023 Classical Marathon. It’s a round-the-clock celebration of classical music, connecting centuries of tradition to the very moment you listen.
We’ve lined up 55 special programs for your listening pleasure – from Early Music and Baroque to Classical and Romantic favorites to compositions written this year. Plus a few shows that push the boundaries of “classical,” highlighting this music’s influence on our broader culture.
Our classical celebration also features a tremendous lineup of guest hosts from Charlottesville’s classical community, including Ben Rous from Charlottesville Symphony, Michael Slon from University Singers and Oratorio Society, Miriam Gordon-Stewart from Victory Hall Opera, Leanne Clement of Charlottesville Opera, I-Jen Fang from UVA Music, and Fiona Hughes from Three Notch’d Road. And longtime WTJU host Michael Latsko returns for a special musical mashup!
All of this wonderful music on WTJU is only possible because of YOU! Each year, donations from listeners like you provide the lion’s share of WTJU’s operating budget. Every piece of music you count on from WTJU counts on generous listener support to get on the air.
Please take a few minutes today to make your generous gift to WTJU. Help ensure this superb music continues to inspire you and our whole music-loving community in 2023.
