Hi, everyone! I'm the host of GPB's Midday Music, heard weekdays 11-2 in Georgia or streaming at anywhere.

With this blog I'm out to connect you to classical music any way I can. It's a challenge when we serve so many communities, but I'll do my best. In my dream world this blog would transcend playlists and comments to become a one-stop clearinghouse for concert listings across Georgia, a meeting place for the arts community statewide. More realistically, I'll be providing details on the recordings I play and concerts I mention on air.

So, down to business. Here's what hit the air today:

11 AM

  • Haydn: Symphony No. 47 in G major. L'Estro Armonico, Solomons (CBS 39685)
