Beginning on Monday, September 3rd, WXXI Classical 91.5 will welcome Performance Today with host Fred Child to the weekday schedule from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. But don't worry, you won't be missing any of your local hosts and friends. We're just shifting things a bit. Julia will now be curating your classical playlist weekdays from 12 to 3 p.m. and Mona will be your musical guide from 3 to 7 p.m.
Classical 91.5 is committed to championing the best of classical music from the Renaissance to today, and from right here in Rochester. Performance Today gives us an opportunity to connect with today's classical musicians in ways that we can't do alone. Performance Today is a daily, two-hour unique celebration of today’s art of classical music delivered by acclaimed classical music host and commentator Fred Child.
In 2017 host Fred Child visited Rochester to attend many concerts from the Gateways Music Festival, and in recent programs, Rochester audiences have heard some of our own local young talent on Performance Today as part of their Artists-in-Residence program. We look forward to hearing more recordings from Rochester on Performance Today.
