Wednesday, February 6

Super Tuesday is over, dangerous weather rages ... and the music plays on. The playlist for GPB's Midday Music follows, and please see below for what's coming up on Georgia's classical scene, with shows in Macon, Rome, Valdosta, Hawkinsville, Morrow, Atlanta, Augusta, Douglasville, Carrollton, Waleska and Tifton. (Do we use the word "scene" for classical music? Heck, why not.) Featured performers across the state include soprano Indra Thomas, conductor Lowell Graham, the Imani Winds, Art Garfunkel, the Kronos Quartet and pianists Christian Zacharias, Leon Bates and Chu-Fang Huang.
